Flybe has reached another milestone in the building of its new Training Academy with the last curved roof section of the simulator wing having been positioned by Training Academy Director, Simon Witts.
The state-of-the art building at Exeter Airport, funded by Flybe, the Learning and Skills Council and the South West Regional Development Agency, is being built by local firm, Rok.
The academy will incorporate 25 classrooms and four flight simulators and has been designed to provide world-class training not only for its own staff but also enhance Flybe’s growing reputation as an international training facility for the airline industry as a whole. It will also offer specialist training for companies involved across the travel-related spectrum.
“It is exciting to watch the new build progressing especially now that the signature curved roof of the simulator wing is finished and it was an honour to be given the opportunity to fasten the final bolt on its last section,” explained Witts. “Construction of the building is progressing well and we look forward to the official celebration next month to mark the completion of the entire roof.”
