UPS buys flight simulators, builds Louisville training centre

  12.10.2017    

UPS is expanding its flight training operations by acquiring three new flight simulators and constructing a new facility to house them near the company's Worldport international air hub in Louisville, Kentucky. All of the state-of-the-art simulator devices are to be built by CAE.
"Powered by ecommerce, UPS is in growth mode. These new simulators and our new building are investments in increased air capacity for our customers all over the world,"|UPS Airlines president Brendan Canavan was quoted as saying in a report by AJOT.
UPS will take delivery of the three full-motion simulators by the end of 2018 that will support its international air express services. They are a: Boeing 747-400 simulator, a B767 simulator and an MD-11 simulator. In addition, the company will receive two new class 4 touch-screen training devices for its new B747-8 fleet.
In 2016, the company announced the purchase of 14 B747-8s, and it recently purchased additional B767 aircraft that will be converted from passenger to cargo configuration. The airline has also begun cockpit modernisation projects for its B757, B767 and A300 aircraft that will enhance safety, deployment options, and the service life of those fleets.
The three new simulators will be housed in a 22,000-square-foot-building in Louisville's Edgewood area, adjacent to UPS Airlines' global operations centre near Louisville International Airport. The new structure will supplement the company's existing flight training facilities in Louisville and Anchorage, Alaska, bring number of full-flight simulators to 11.
The new building's design includes a fourth simulator bay to allow for future growth possibilities, as well as office space. Construction will begin in 2017, with completion scheduled for 2018.
