NEW YORK, NY, June 4, 2014 - FlightSafety International celebrated the grand opening of its newly expanded and renovated Learning Center in Teterboro, New Jersey today with Customers, FlightSafety Teammates and other special guests.
“The expansion and renovation of FlightSafety’s Teterboro Learning Center is a clear demonstration of our commitment to continuously enhance the training and services we provide.” said Bruce Whitman, President & CEO. “The quality and success of the entire project is due to the efforts and talents of all the FlightSafety Teammates who were involved.”
“Last June we stood here to mark the groundbreaking for this new facility. And one year later we gather to celebrate the completion of this state of the art facility, “said Lt. Governor Guadagno. “FlightSafety is a great example of how businesses that already have a presence in New Jersey can continue to expand and grow. The Christie Administration congratulates FlightSafety on their exciting new Learning Center and we look forward to their continued success.”
The 72,000 square foot facility can accommodate up to eight full flight simulators. It currently offers training programs for business aircraft manufactured by Dassault. They include the Falcon 50EX, Falcon 2000, Falcon 2000EX EASy, Falcon 900EX, and Falcon 900EX EASy. Additional simulators will be added in the future. The timing and aircraft type they represent will be determined by FlightSafety according to Customers needs.
The Center offers a new state-of-the-art facility for flight crew emergency training. This includes a pool for sea survival training, a full scale dunker, and a hoist used to simulate being rescued from water by a helicopter. It also features a full scale aircraft cabin trainer equipped with a visual system for emergency and cabin service courses.
The advanced technology classrooms are equipped for FlightSafety’s new Operational Day Flow training methodology. This highly customized training transforms ground school by presenting critical procedures and tasks according to phase of flight rather than introducing them one system at a time. Operational Day Flow includes extensive use of Matrix, FlightSafety’s integrated training system. Matrix significantly enhances the instructor’s ability to enrich the pilot’s knowledge by showing how systems work and interact in a real time environment. It also enables the pilots to immediately put into practice the activity being taught by the instructor.
FlightSafety has been a factory authorized training provider for Dassault Falcon aircraft for over 40 years. Training for the complete line of Dassault Falcon aircraft is offered at FlightSafety’s Learning Centers in Columbus, Ohio; Dallas, Texas; Teterboro, New Jersey; Wilmington, Delaware; and at the Paris-Le Bourget airport.
