Air Georgian has been the launching point for the airline careers of thousands of pilots, aircraft technicians, flight attendants, and other aviation personnel. Designed with learning in mind, CAPDA provides a purpose-based facility for us to lead the industry in investments in research and development focused on competency and evidence-based training, augmented and virtual reality, data analytics, and innovative content development for open source learning.

The facility is 6,000 square feet in size and features two large classrooms with a capacity of 36-80 depending on configuration, small classrooms, several offices, interview rooms, CPT and IPT rooms, briefing spaces, and multi-purpose rooms.
