CTC Aviation announces further expansion to crew training centre network
As part of CTC Aviation’s strategic plans to expand the capacity and provision of purpose-built airline pilot training and resourcing services, the company has announced the opening of two additional UK-based Crew Training Centres – London Gatwick and Coventry; increasing the total number of Crew Training and Resourcing Centres within the company to seven worldwide. Chosen strategically for its convenient location close to London’s Gatwick Airport, CTC Aviation’s newest airline training facility is home to a new Airbus A320 Level D Full Flight Simulator provided by L-3 Link Simulation and Training. This will be followed quickly by another L-3 Link simulator, a Boeing 737-800W scheduled for certification in June 2015. Training at the new facility commenced in March 2015, with the first trainees coming from British Airways – both Future Pilot Programme graduates and experienced pilots converting to the Airbus A320 from other fleet types.
