Zulu Flight Training Launches In Europe
The first Zulu Flight Training office in Europe is now up and running in Geneva, Switzerland, Continental Motors Group announced this week. Like the original site for the project, in Spanish Fort, Alabama, the new office offers a simulator-based curriculum based in a convenient, urban location. The goal is to retain students who might otherwise abandon their training due to busy schedules and lack of proximity to the airfield. The strategy has delivered student retention rates greater than 90 percent at the Alabama office since the launch two years ago, says Gloria Liu, general manager at Zulu Flight Training.
The Zulu Flight Centers also act as an urban aviation hub, the company said, providing a convenient site to offer safety seminars, host aviation and professional groups, conduct lectures, provide pinch-hitter courses, and help visiting pilots familiarize themselves with local airspace procedures. Both flight centers offer private pilot and instrument training. AVweb editorial director Paul Bertorelli visited the Alabama office last year, and provides an analysis and a video.
