FlightSafety International has entered into a comprehensive long-term agreement with Air Methods, to provide four Level D qualified full flight simulators at the company's new Learning Center in Colorado, which is scheduled to open in 2016. The Learning Center will be equipped with simulators for the Bell 407GX, Airbus AS350 B3, Airbus EC130T2 and Airbus EC135. The Airbus EC135 is currently being used by Air Methods at FlightSafety's Learning Center in Dallas, Texas and will be the first simulator to be installed. The remaining three will enter service once FlightSafety completes the design, development, and manufacture of the simulators. It will be expanded in the future to accommodate additional full flight simulators as required.
FlightSafety and Abu Dhabi Aviation have signed a Letter of Intent to establish a Learning Center in Abu Dhabi. The first phase of the Learning Center is scheduled to open in September 2015. The 8,000 square meter facility will accommodate eight full flight simulators and feature classrooms equipped with advanced technology training systems. Phase two will double the size of the Center and increase the number of flight simulators to 17.
