GREENSBORO, N.C. – Some of the pilots who will fly Honda Aircraft Co’s new corporate jet will be trained in Greensboro, where the jet is being built.
The News & Record of Greensboro reported Friday that FlightSafety International will put its first simulator inside Honda’s plant, which is under construction at Piedmont Triad International Airport.
Training will begin in December 2011, just as the first customers take ownership of the new jets.
The simulator will bring about 25 jobs. But the state will lose up to $128,000 in one-time sales tax revenue. That’s because lawmakers approved a tax exemption on flight simulators last summer.
