    FlightSafety, October 21, 2019 - NEW YORK – FlightSafety International is pleased to announce that it will build a new Learning Center in Houston, Texas.

    Construction is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2020.

    The new state-of-the-art building will be located in the Houston Spaceport area at the Ellington Airport. The airport currently supports the operations of the United States military, NASA, and a variety of general aviation tenants. It is also home to the annual Wings Over Houston Airshow.

    “FlightSafety is proud to have been a member of the Houston business community since 1966. This new facility will replace the current Houston Learning Center, which opened in 1976,” said David Davenport, President and CEO. “We appreciate the support received from the City of Houston for this new facility as we worked to develop and finalize a long-term ground lease agreement for a six acre area within Phase 1 of the Spaceport.”

    The Center will be equipped initially with 12 full flight simulators for a wide variety of aircraft types. These simulators and other advanced-technology training devices will be used to provide training for pilots, flight attendants and aircraft maintenance technicians. This includes a dedicated area for training on Pratt & Whitney Canada engines.

    In addition, FlightSafety has entered into an agreement with a large commercial aircraft operator for exclusive use of a large portion of the Center. The dedicated area will be equipped with a series of full flight simulators, classrooms and offices to support the company’s pilot training programs. “This agreement further demonstrates FlightSafety’s ability to provide turnkey training services to commercial aircraft operators in facilities that meet their exact needs,” added David Davenport.
