BAE Systems expands Regional Aircraft Customer Training Centre


BAE Systems has formally opened its expanded Regional Aircraft Customer Training Centre at Woodford. The center, which offers pilot and maintenance engineer training on the BAe 146 and Avro RJ, was first opened in the early 1990s. It has now received a UKP2.7 million upgrade, including installation of an additional BAe 146 simulator (previously located at Hatfield), six additional multimedia-equipped classrooms, new entrance and reception areas, and additional office space. The center now houses two BAe 146 simulators and an Avro RJ simulator, as well as a variety of other training rigs. (The center also offers training on the Jetstream 31 and 41, and houses a full-motion Jetstream 31/41 simulator.)
