Airbus acquires new US Training Centre

Airbus has acquired the Strategic Simulation Solutions flight training centre in Aurora, Colorado, a Denver suburb. Currently, the training centre primarily supports Frontier Airlines and has significant room for growth.

Prior to this acquisition, Airbus provided training to the North American region primarily from its Miami, Florida-based training centre. The addition of the new facility will help Airbus meet its long-term growth in expanding markets throughout the Americas. Over the past two years Airbus has expanded its training capacity for customers in the Americas with the addition of training centres in Mexico City, Mexico and in Campinas, Brazil. Currently, the Aurora training centre has two FAA Level-D ‘full-flight’ A320 Family simulators for training of Frontier Airlines pilots on the airline’s all-Airbus fleet. Additional simulators will be added at the Denver facility in 2018 to address anticipated increased demand for training.
