Training Academy

Yeovil, United Kingdom

The AgustaWestland Training Academy (UK) is located in Yeovil, in the South West of England, which is approximately 135 miles south-west of London. Yeovil is also just 2 hours from Heathrow airport and 40 miles south of Bristol International Airport, which provides easy access to continental Europe.
The Company has provided a dedicated aircraft training facility for more than 60 years. The Academy stands in the south-east corner of AgustaWestland’s Lysander Road site, where world famous fixed wing and rotary wing aircraft have been produced since 1915, including the Wessex, Sea King, Lynx, AW101 and Apache AH Mk1.

In 1997 the Academy was completely refurbished and has been continuously updated to the extent where it currently houses 12 state-of-the-art electronic classrooms, which are used to deliver aircrew, groundcrew and maintenance training to our UK Ministry of Defence customers as well as international students from more than 30 Military Export countries. The Academy also has dedicated Composite Repair training facilities, where the repair of composite structures can be taught and assessed.

To support the delivery of Instructor Led Training, the Academy uses interactive synthetic training devices such as Cockpit Procedures Trainers (CPT), Mechanical System Trainers (MST), Weapon Systems Trainers (WST), Computer Based Training (CBT) and Internet delivered training, which is managed through an advanced Content Management System (CMS).

In addition to the delivery of classroom-based training, the Academy provides Instructional Design and Development services, to support customers in the design and development of bespoke training solutions to meet their specific training needs.

The Academy is at the leading edge of training courseware design, production and delivery, using the latest technologies to manage the development and delivery of integrated training courses for AgustaWestland customers.
