Cirrus Opens New Flight Training Facility and Innovation Center
Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel once said, “education is the art of making man and woman ethical.” Seems like someone took his recite very seriously. Cirrus Aircraft has decided to expand its service business with a new flight training facility at Scottsdale Airport in Arizona, US.
The Minnesota-based aircraft manufacturing company will also start its new satellite innovation center in Chandler, Arizona, and McKinney, Texas. It will commence pilot training and full-service aircraft management starting next month.
According to our sources, Cirrus Aircraft first organized a countrywide search to pinpoint the most suitable locations for its newest facilities. They were looking for the best location for months and landed in Arizona and Texas after its final analysis. A wide range of customers and skilled talent pools were also reasons behind its judgment.
“The innovation centers will support the new product development team. It will be responsible for advancing new technologies and designs for innovative product introductions,” as reported by Cirrus Aircraft. The Chandler innovation center will focus on avionics, electrical, and software. Engineering disciplines, on the other hand, will be supported at the Cirrus Innovation facility in McKinney, Texas.
What’s more, Scottsdale unites with other Cirrus training centers in Knoxville, McKinney, and Dallas Fort Worth. For those who don’t know, the Cirrus training center in Knoxville is highly popular for offering SR series and Vision Jet type rating training to the students.
“The Chandler and McKinney Innovation Centers add significant capabilities and further extend our capacity to fuel our ambitious product innovation plans,” said Pat Waddick – Cirrus’s president of innovation and operations. “Additionally, our expansion efforts not only attract new talent to Cirrus Aircraft in great locations but generate jobs and economic growth within the local markets.”
The Minnesota-based aircraft manufacturing company is currently hiring new staff members to aid its expansion and all other facilities in Knoxville and Duluth of Minnesota and Grand Forks of North Dakota manufacturing centers. It will begin providing highly personalized flight training and full-service aircraft management somewhere in October.
