FlyRight

Project summary provided by submitting company.

This project was designed to house FlyRight Inc., a company who offers initial, recurrent, custom, and ancillary flight training in FAA approved full motion simulators. As an FAA-approved 142 Flight Training Center, they have achieved the highest level of accreditation from the FAA. Their programs offer leading-edge training with cutting edge flight simulators. The project is located on the entrance drive to Concord International Airport. A high level of coordination was required in order to obtain FAA approval for the crane used to lift the panels since the project was located directly in the main flight path.
