L3 Technologies celebrated the opening of its expanded L3 Arlington Training Center facility in Arlington, Texas.
The multi-purpose training center provides world-leading simulation and instruction for both military and commercial pilots, as well as state-of-the-art classroom facilities.
“This facility exemplifies L3’s commitment to delivering world-class training and simulation to our military and commercial aviation customers,” said Christopher E. Kubasik, L3’s Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President. “We are at the forefront of the growing outsourcing trend, with innovative, scalable and affordable options that address the global demand for highly trained pilots and aviation professionals.”
The new multi-purpose training center expansion adds approximately 40,000 square feet, more than doubling the size of the high bay facility. The expansion includes room for six additional full-flight simulators, classrooms incorporating augmented and virtual reality, and customer-dedicated spaces. Serving both domestic and international customers, the center is near the Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport, which affords easy travel access and convenient hotel accommodations for students. The Arlington expansion complements L3’s soon-to-open London Training Center that will support nearby Gatwick Airport with state-of-the-art pilot training and simulation.
“We are excited to offer this expanded multi-purpose facility to greatly enhance our training capability in Arlington,” said Lenny Genna, President of L3 Link Training & Simulation, which is part of L3’s Electronic Systems business segment. “This is the right time for L3 to invest in the advancement of flight training for aircraft, helicopter and unmanned vehicle pilots. New training and simulation technologies, combined with a well-designed infrastructure, provide an ideal environment to deliver the best flight training experience for our customers.”
