It was announced after the close of business on June 7, that several Minneapolis/St.Paul facilities will be closed down and the work transferred to...surprise, Atlanta! The former NWA facilities that are being terminated are: NATCO - the large pilot training facility next door to Building A, the former NWA Inc. headquarters in Eagan. MSP In-flight training Delta MSP Tech Ops/Engineering - this includes the shuttering of the tall building attached to Building C and the large, widebody hangars that are hidden from I-494. The building houses all sorts of maintenance and engineering folks as well as reps from Airbus and Boeing. Building C, the former Republic headquarters, will be kept as well as the hangars for narrowbody aircraft that face I-494. According to the e-mail from Richard, everyone will be offered a similar position in Atlanta. The moves are expected to take a year. I've already heard from a couple of former NWA folks who trained at NATCO and they're saddened. I personally don't think this should shock anyone. Despite the assurances made during the merger, Delta's finding there is no need for duplicate facilities in ATL and MSP.
