United Airlines lifts curtain on expanded flight training center

United Airlines this week unveiled what the Chicago-based carrier is touting as the world’s largest flight training center for pilots. The new facility is situated outside Denver, near where United has a hub at Denver International Airport. The revamped and expanded facility's opening is the culmination of a decision management made three years ago to consolidate all United’s pilot training efforts at a single facility in Denver. That kicked into gear a plan to renovate and double the number of flight simulators at the Denver facility, which now total more than 30.
