Helicopter Adventures has opened a new flight-training facility. The new building, located at Space Coast Regional Airport, near Titusville, Fla., adds four large classrooms and 7,000 sq ft of office and administrative space to the existing school.

The pilot training school, which claims to be the only one certified to both FAA and JAA standards, trains some 250 students annually from 50 different countries.

The school operates three divisions, offering flight training for pilots who want to obtain FAA and European Joint Aviation Authority ratings, as well as a military training program for allies of the U.S., modeled on the U.S. Army Aviation program at Fort Rucker, Ala.
