Continental Motors Group has opened Zulu Flight Training in Geneva, Switzerland. This is the second location and first international location for Zulu, a dual-site flight training school with a simulator based curriculum.
Continental has operated its prototype site at a mall in Spanish Fort, Alabama, for two years.
Zulu-Geneva includes a simulator training center with aviation/pilot store in a city center that feeds student pilot to airfields for the aircraft based portion of training.
Zulu offers a private pilot license and instrument rating syllabus that utilizes the full motion simulation and scenario based learning. Zulu-Geneva partnered with flight schools and flying clubs in the region, using existing instructors and training aircraft.
“We have found the combination of simulator and aircraft flight training with specifically tailored training curriculum, available in a convenient location, has greatly increased the frequency and effectiveness of training for our students. This pairing, in turn, has enabled us to keep our student retention rates greater than 90%,” says Gloria Liu, General Manager at Zulu Flight Training. “
