September 27, 2022
Choate Construction and Marlboro Development Team recently played a key role in the ground-breaking of CAE’s business aviation training center near Gulfstream’s Headquarters in Savannah, GA. This two-story, ultra-modern facility will be the fifth of its kind in the United States, as CAE, an international high technology company, continues to expand its global training network.
“CAE’s new facility will be state of the art, bringing world-class flight training to business pilots,” said Kirk Gilbert, Choate Vice President, Division Manager of Savannah. “Our team is honored to be a part of this project and the continued growth of Savannah’s thriving aviation industry.”
The Savannah training center will be dedicated to training on Gulfstream aircraft, equipped with four Gulfstream-family full-flight simulators (FFSs), maintenance training devices, modern briefing rooms, and classrooms.
“Marlboro Development Team places significant value on the relationships created with the companies with whom we work,” said Kyle Edney, Executive Vice President with Marlboro Development Team, Inc. “CAE’s new Savannah facility is a tremendous addition to our growing portfolio, and we are thrilled to be the development partner for this high-tech aviation training facility.”
Construction of the training center has already begun with plans to open in mid-2023.
