FlightSafety International is closing its pilot-training center at Toledo Express Airport and is working with its 57 full-time employees to determine if they’ll remain with the company, a spokesman confirmed Tuesday.
The Detroit Metro/Toledo center is set to close by May 31, said Steve Phillips, vice president of communications for FlightSafety.
“We are really taking a close look at services and programs across the network,” he said. “By consolidating the program in Toledo into other centers, it would allow us to run our operation more efficiently and better serve our customers.”
FlightSafety has 42 centers around the world and provides further training to licensed pilots. It has operations in Columbus and Cincinnati.
