Congratulations to our client, CAE, on their new Dothan Training Center located at the Dothan Regional Airport in Alabama. The state-of-the-art facility will include live, virtual and classroom training provided to more than 450 U.S. Army fixed-wing aviators each year.

The Army Fixed-Wing Flight Training program provides training required for experienced Army rotary-wing aviators transitioning to fly the Army's fleet of fixed-wing aircraft. The new training center will be operational early 2017 and ready for the start of training operations in the Spring of 2017. It is expected to employ over 100 people with a capital investment of $75 million.
