Jet2.com has opened a fully integrated simulator and cabin safety and emergency procedures training centre on Bradford’s Euroway Industrial Estate, close the airline’s base at Leeds Bradford Airport.
The new training centre, which houses three flight simulators, cabin crew trainer units, a high-tech computer-based training (CBT) room for pilots and fully-equipped briefing rooms and classrooms, is the result of a £9.5 million investment.
“Our fleet and crew are ever expanding to meet the continued growth and success of both the airline and our Jet2holidays business so it seemed like the right time to establish our own Training Centre,” claimed Jet2.com’s MD Ian Doubtfire. “It is a fantastic facility which will make a significant impact on the way we train and develop our staff. It allows us to deliver the very best bespoke training programmes to ensure that both our pilots and cabin crew provide the safe and friendly flight experience our customers have come to expect.”
