Jet2 has announced that it has opened a new multi-million-pound training centre in Cheadle, near Manchester Airport.
The new centre builds on the success of the company’s first training centre near Bradford, which opened in 2014. The new purpose-built centre represents £8.5 million of investment and, in addition to creating a dozen full-time positions, enables Jet2.com to underpin its growth ambitions by training thousands of colleagues every year.
The state-of-the-art centre will provide a bespoke centre of excellence for new and current pilots, engineers, cabin crew and ground operations colleagues. The three-storey facility will house full and fixed-base flight simulators, cabin crew trainer units, engineering training devices to enact real-life scenarios, high-tech Computer Based Training (CBT) rooms, fully equipped classrooms and briefing rooms.
