American Eurocopter’s additional 20,000 square foot training facility in Grand Prairie, Texas is scheduled for completion in mid 2007. The new building will house FAA approved simulators including a full motion Level 6 EC135 simulator.  
 
“Our state-of-the-art Training Center will be the first in the U.S. to provide advanced simulator training for the EC135, EC145, and AS350. Our U.S. customers have been asking for these kinds of simulators, and we at American Eurocopter are answering their requests by providing these simulators,” explains Del Livingston, American Eurocopter’s Vice President of Flight Operations and Training. 
 
As well as advanced simulation and additional helicopters, new and enhanced courses are planned to address mission specific requirements of American Eurocopter’s customers. “American Eurocopter is committed to providing all aspects of service to our customers, from sales through training and after-sales support 24/7,” says Marc Paganini; American Eurocopter’s President and CEO.
