Lufthansa Aviation Training (LAT) is investing a total of EUR 89 million this year in the field of pilot training for numerous training devices as well as in the infrastructure of its own sites in order to fulfil high customer demand. At present Lufthansa Aviation Training operates 54 full flight simulators (FFS) and boasts a load factor (capacity utilisation) of about 90 percent, a peak value in the industry. In addition to the necessity of satisfying training requirements in Austria, LAT is also motivated to leverage further market opportunities in Vienna as a training provider. A building extension will be added to the simulator centre which housed four full flight simulators up until now to add sufficient space to encompass three additional FFS devices and two flight training devices (FTD). Two of the three newly-won simulator spots will be used for the Airbus A320 simulators coming from Berlin in the year 2020. One space will remain unoccupied initially to enable flexible future use. 

”2019 is a special year for us, because with the largest investment in the history of Lufthansa Aviation Training in the field of pilot training, we are setting a decisive course for meeting the high customer demand in the future. With our modern fleet of simulators in operation around the clock, we are making a significant contribution to safety in flight operations”, said Ola Hansson, Managing Director of Lufthansa Aviation Training.
