The Qantas Group has chosen a builder to deliver its new $90 million Group Flight Training Centre, which is expected to provide around 2000 jobs.
ADCO was appointed to build the centre, which aims to be one of the largest of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere.
Located near the Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport and Qantas’ Mascot headquarters, the centre will house 14 flight simulators, 10 static cockpit devices, an emergency procedures hall with a pool of water for training, aircraft cabin mockups and classrooms.
When operation, the facility will provide training resources for 2000 pilots and 3600 cabin crew.
“Congratulations to the whole team for their hard work and time taken to find the right solution for Qantas during the bid process,” ADCO CEO Neil Harding said.
