An area of the Agricultural Technology Park in Vélez-Málaga is to be the home of a new flying school.  A deal to sell 2,788 square metres to Axarquía Aviation Park, which operates as Aerodynamics Málaga, has recently being signed by mayor Antonio Moreno Ferrer who said the project would be “unique and pioneering in Spain.”

The Park lies close to the existing Leoni Benabú airfield and the space acquired by Aerodynamics Málaga will be used for the construction of a two-storey building to include training facilities and accommodation for students.

The company says a new €1.5 million flight simulator will be installed towards the end of the year to enable the centre to train pilots to fly the Airbus 320.  The company says that the majority of students attending the school will be foreigners who have long demanded such a facility in the area.

In addition to the sale of land for construction, a further 32,000 square metres is to be leased with an option to purchase.  This area will be used for parking aircraft.
