FlightSafety International and Executive Jet have agreed to build a new maintenance and crew training centre at the latter's operational headquarters at Port Columbus International in New Jersey. The $25 million centre will house up to three simulators, including a Cessna Citation V Ultra training system. The centre is scheduled to open in mid-1999. In a separate agreement, FlightSafety and Gulfstream Aerospace have joined forces to offer the "triple T" (total technical training) programme for Gulfstream technicians. The first triple T maintenance class, for the GV, will begin at the end of October and will be followed by the first GIV-SP class in early 1999.
