2015 ALBERTA AEROSPACE TRAINING CENTRE GRAND OPENING

A new flight training simulator for Boeing 737 series aircraft is officially open for business at the Alberta Aerospace Training Centre, thanks to a partnership between Edmonton International Airport (EIA), Canadian North, Canadian Helicopters, Edmonton Economic Development Corporation (EEDC), and the Government of Alberta. The simulator offers training opportunities for international and regional pilots to learn flight operations and flying characteristics of Boeing 737 aircraft, the world’s most popular airliner.

The flight simulator, located in EIA’s Cargo Village, is the latest component of the Port Alberta initiative, a collaboration led by EEDC and EIA to increase the overall competitiveness and trading volume of the Edmonton Region. Following the launch of the 737 simulator, Canadian Helicopters will also install a helicopter simulator to be housed in the main passenger terminal building of EIA.
