Alabama Aviation Training Center plays key role in aerospace growth

MOBILE, Alabama — A key ingredient to the success of Alabama’s Airbus jet manufacturing facility is an innovative advanced training center built by the state to boost the aerospace industry workforce.

The $7 million Alabama Aviation Training Center, which opened in 2014 at Mobile Aeroplex, is operated by the state’s top worker training agency, AIDT, and prepares workers for the nearby A320 family Final Assembly Line (FAL).

AIDT Director Ed Castile said the facility plays a key role for Airbus and Alabama.

“The expansion of the civil aviation sector in Alabama over the last five years has once again diversified Alabama’s industrial portfolio,” he said. “Because of this expansion, specifically in Mobile and Baldwin counties, the need for a state-of-the-art aviation training center was on our list of ‘must-haves.’
