VERO BEACH – FlightSafety Academy, located near the Vero Beach Municipal Airport, announced it has signed two international agreements that will bring foreign students to the school for part of their pilot training. Aircraft Maintenance Technology Web site www.amtonline.com reported Thursday that Pilot Training Network, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Lufthansa Flight Training, will begin training students at the Vero Beach facility starting next year. The company will be moving its operations from the Croatian city of Zadar in order to meet the growing demand of students wanting to become airline pilots.
Flight Safety also announced it had reached an agreement with Britain-based Cabair to provide part of the training for pilots wanting a license to fly planes in Europe. Students will receive the first part of their training at FlightSafety to meet Federal Aviation Administration requirements before moving to Orlando Flight Training for further international training.
