The new purpose-built 13,000 sq ft training centre is being equipped with the very latest aircraft, top-of-the-range flight simulators and other equipment to train tomorrow’s commercial pilots.
Wrightstyle supplied six fixed field windows with 60 minutes of fire rating in their WSL 60 series framing system.
The fire resistant windows are for new offices that look out into a main hangar, and hence the need for fire resistance protection.
Apart from flight training, Gloucestershire Airport offers flights to Jersey and the Isle of Man, and a range of charter and other services.
Wrightstyle supplies a comprehensive range of internal and external glazed systems, including curtain walling, windows, partitions and doors, providing integrity only or integrity and insulation for up to 120 minutes.
The company’s advanced systems have also been successfully live tested against both car and lorry bomb attack, yet are able to incorporate slim sightlines and absolute aesthetics.
Wrightstyle has become a trusted supplier to airport and other transport infrastructure projects, working on such airports as Luton in the UK, and rail projects such as King’s Cross and Crossrail, and internationally in Dubai and Hong Kong.
For the Skyborne project, Wrightstyle’s customer was contractor, Mildren Construction of Christchurch, and the windows were installed by Wrightstyle’s approved installer, Structural Systems Cardiff Ltd.
“It was a pleasure working on this project as everything fell into place, with the whole job going like clockwork,” said John Woodock, Wrightstyle’s contracts manager.
