FlightSafety International is to build a new Learning Center in Columbus, Ohio. Construction of the new facility will be completed in two phases. Phase one will be 55,000 square feet and house six full flight simulators. It will also feature 13 advanced technology pilot and maintenance training classrooms, 12 briefing and debriefing rooms, and facilities for 12 Graphical Flight-Deck simulators. Construction of phase one is scheduled to be completed in December 2014.
Phase two will include an addition of up to 90,000 square feet. This will provide space for more classrooms, flight simulators, and other advanced training equipment. The exact timing and size of the addition will be determined by FlightSafety based on customer needs.
