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 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.

Pilot Training Network will use FlightSafety the first part of the student’s flight training, called VFR training for visual flight rules.

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.

No figures were released on the number of students who might be coming to Vero Beach for flight training, but the school can handle up to 350 students.
