SAS Flight Academy will establish a new training centre at Oslo Airport (Gardermoen), Norway with the centre set to become a landmark within aviation training.

The new training centre will be operational on August 15, 2004, and will initially have three full flight simulators, B737NG, B737 Classic, and Dash8-100/300. There will also be equipment for cabin crew training for the same aircraft types. The building, which is under construction, will include classrooms, rooms for briefing and debriefing, and CBT-stations.

"The training facility provides an outstanding opportunity to develop SAS Flight Academy even further. The co-operation with Braathens, Scandinavian Airlines and Wider°e, all forerunners within aviation training development, will offer immediate advantages to those operators. In addition, it makes SAS Flight Academy an even more interesting alternative for other airlines all over the world," says Olof BSrve, president of SAS Flight Academy.

The new training centre provides training for pilots, cabin crews, maintenance technicians and ship officers. It offers training for twelve different aircraft types, ranging from regional to long haul aircraft and helicopter.
