The latest tenant at the Denver International Business Center on the approach to Denver's airport will be FlightSafety International, a local branch of a flight training and simulator manufacturer based in New Jersey.

FlightSafety International will construct a 108,000-square-foot facility on eight acres at 67th Avenue and Yampa Street, complete with eight flight simulators. The space will have the capacity to expand to hold 16 simulators. The company has an existing facility in Centennial that will remain.

"This is a huge addition to the Denver International Business Center and it underscores Denver International Airport's importance to our national and international transportation system and to Colorado's economy," said Cal Fulenwider, president of L.C. Fulenwider Inc., owner and master developer of the DIBC. "The new facility will be a major employer in the region. We're excited to welcome FlightSafety International to the DIBC."

FlightSafety chose the location because of its proximity to two of its major clients: Air Methods Corp., based in Arapahoe County, and SkyWest Airlines, headquartered in St. George, Utah, said Steve Phillips, vice president of communications at FlightSafety.
