Allegiant Air Breaks Ground on New Training Center

The $24 million training facility in Sanford, Fla., will be 43,000 square feet in size. It will be ready to hosting training for Allegiant flight crew members and mechanics by the first quarter of 2017.

Las Vegas-based Allegiant Air broke ground Aug. 4 on a new training center in Sanford, Fla., and adjacent to Orlando Sanford International Airport. The airline's announcement of the groundbreaking said U.S. Rep. John Mica, Florida Lt. Gov. Carlos Lopez-Cantera, and local officials joined Maury Gallagher, CEO and chairman of Allegiant, at the ceremony.

The low-fare airline has served the Orlando market for 11 years and had carried nearly 14 million people to and from there. Allegiant currently offers non-stop service to Sanford from more than 70 U.S. cities; the airline's focus is linking travelers in small cities to world-class leisure destinations with its fleet of more than 80 jet aircraft.

"It's been great to see how our partnership with Orlando Sanford International Airport, Airports Worldwide, and the entire community has grown and thrived," said Gallagher. "We're so pleased that this new, state-of-the-art facility will place Sanford at the center of training activity and the leading edge of technology for all our East Coast crew members."

The $24 million training facility will be 43,000 square feet in size. It will be ready to hosting training for Allegiant flight crew members and mechanics by the first quarter of 2017. Allegiant operates a similar facility in Las Vegas to train its West Coast-based crews. The Sanford training center will have the capacity to train 150 pilots, 500 flight attendants, and 100 mechanics annually, with 30 local, full-time instructors and support staffers operating it.
