Branson Unveils Spatial Composite Cabin Crew Trainer in San Francisco

08 November 2011

Virgin America has officially opened its new cabin crew training facility within its Burlingame, California headquarters. 

According to Virgin, at a ribbon-cutting event, Virgin Group Founder Sir Richard Branson, Virgin America President and CEO David Cush and the airline’s teammates opened the new facility featuring a replica Virgin America A320 aircraft fuselage that will allow the growing airline to train thousands of its flight crew in California.  Virgin say that, during a time when most US airlines have been contracting or shedding jobs, they have proven to be one of the fastest growing USairlines in history, with plans to add approximately 500 new jobs on an annual basis over the next three to five years. 

Virgin explain that the composite aircraft fuselage cabin trainer was designed and built by Spatial Composite Solutions in Dubai as a full-size replica of a new Virgin America Airbus A320 aircraft and will be used for the intensive in-flight training of the airline’s cabin crew.
