Awaiting Part 142 Approval For Sim-Based Center
FlyRight Inc. announced this week its simulator-based flight
training center, which is on-track for FAA 142 Training Center
approval this month, will be located at the Concord Regional
Airport in Concord, NC. FlyRight considered several locations prior
to choosing the Charlotte area for its simulator-based King Air
training programs, and expects to open its doors for training
within 45 days.
Jim Crawford, Director of Operations for FlyRight, noted "Our
Concord location is a win-win-win situation for FlyRight, the city
of Concord, and our customers. The proximity to numerous hotels,
shopping, golf and entertainment is a real benefit to our
customers, as is year-round good weather."
The Concord Regional Airport, home to many corporate operators
and NASCAR teams, is the busiest general aviation airport in the
state, and is only a 20 minute drive from the Charlotte Douglas
international airport. FlyRight's 10,000 square foot training
center will be the only simulator-based training program for
corporate pilots between Washington and Atlanta.
soon-to-be-approved 142 Training Center will offer initial and
recurrent training for pilots of the popular Beechcraft King Air
series of aircraft. Beechcraft King Air aircraft have been in
production since 1964 and over 6,000 King Airs have been produced,
and the demand for King Air pilots is growing. FlyRight's King Air
B200 and 1900 Level-C simulator, which was approved by the FAA
earlier this year, will be used for the training programs.
FlyRight was founded in 2003 to provide professional,
simulator-based flight training to FAA part 91 and certificated
operators. Based at the Concord Regional Airport, FlyRight's 10,000
square foot training center is conveniently located in the heart of
one of the fastest growing areas in the United States.
