Flight simulator training provider FlyRight opened a new training facility at North Carolina’s Concord Regional Airport last month. Located across the street from the company’s original location, the new 42,000-sq-ft facility offers classrooms, client break areas and a high bay that can accommodate up to seven full-motion simulators.

According to the company (Booth 4626), the additional space will allow it to improve its current King Air training programs and expand its training to more aircraft platforms.

“We’ve listened to our customers, and we sense an increase in the demand and diversification of our services,” said Mike Hapgood, president of the FAA-certified Part 142 training center. “With that said, we plan to manage our growth while strategically adding equipment to our simulator fleet.”

Among the new additions is a level-D simulator for the Cessna Caravan. Manufactured by NLX/Rockwell Collins, the device is scheduled for FAA approval this month. FlyRight will offer initial, recurrent, custom training and simulator lease options for the Caravan.
