This building consisted of a combination of two- and three-storey educational and office spaces constructed of cast-in-place concrete that adjoin high-volume hangar type spaces constructed of structural steel. It was designed and built to accommodate the latest in aircrew and technician simulation, making it one of the most advanced flight training facilities in the world.
