Firm's Newquay Airport expansion plans
9:20am Monday 22nd October 2012 in News
Significant expansion plans have been announced by AgustaWestland at Newquay Airport.
AgustaWestland's successful Regional Growth Fund (RGF) bid identifies a significant expansion of AgustaWestland’s operational flight training centre (OFTC) at the airport.
The company’s expansion plans at the "Enterprise Zone Aerohub" at the airport will increase capacity and capability across its military and new (UK) civil platforms for air crew, pilot and engineering training and will create additional high value employment in Cornwall.
The OFTC was established at the Airport in January 2010 and today’s announcement will extend the partnership between the Airport and AgustaWestland and the work which has been undertaken over the last 12 months by Cornwall Airport Limited and Cornwall Development Company, to further develop and enhance that relationship.
