Construction of the two purpose-built buildings to house the Training and construction of L3’s commercial flight simulators is progressing well. The external shells of both buildings are almost complete and the internal fit-out is well underway, with Willmott Dixon programmed to be complete by December 2018.
The 6,980m2 three storey training building will provide L3 with a high-quality flagship building, housing 8no. flight simulators and associated classrooms, for the training of pilots. The classrooms and supporting functions are located within a central core area that looks out over the fully glazed Simulator Halls, which allows the dynamics of the simulators to be visible to passers-by. The Training facility will be supported by the 7,980m2 Operations building, where the simulators will be constructed and shipped all around the world.
