THE UK’s largest domestic airline, Flybe, has reached another milestone in the building of its new Training Academy at Exeter, UK, with the last curved roof section of its impressive Simulator Wing having been positioned in place by Training Academy Director, Simon Witts.
The building, funded by Flybe, the Learning and Skills Council and the South West Regional Development Agency, is being built by local firm, Rok, and will celebrate its next major milestone next month with a formal roof topping ceremony to mark the completion of the entire roof.
The Flybe Training Academy will incorporate 25 classrooms and four flight simulators and has been designed to provide training not only for its own staff but also enhance the carrier’s reputation as an international training facility for the airline industry.  It will also offer specialist training for companies involved across the travel-related spectrum.
