Should this project move forward, the training centre will be a 72,000 sq. ft., three-storey facility that houses training classrooms, simulators and a training hangar to house a full-scale C-27J maintenance training aircraft platform. The centre will take up to four years to build. The government is expected to consider this project for approval in the fall of 2016.
