Swiss AviationTraining launches Embraer 190 simulator in Frankfurt

Zurich-based Swiss AviationTraining said it has launched its new CAE Embraer (NYSE: ERJ) 190 full-flight simulator at the Lufthansa Flight Training Center in Frankfurt.

According to SAT, the new facility marks another milestone in SAT´s evolution into an experienced provider of total “E-Jet” training solutions, and further underlines its standing and expertise as a competence centre for integrated cockpit, cabin and technical training.

The simulator, which came in almost 40 cases of components, has been assembled there after a long journey from manufacturer CAE inMontreal by sea to Antwerp and thence by road to Frankfurt on three Natco Ltd. heavy-haul trucks.

SAT said that the whole consignment arrived in February; and now, after extensive installation, the new simulator is “ready to train.”

The firm already operates an E-Jet simulator in Munich. And the new Frankfurt location ideally complements these existing training operations.

SAT´s collaborations with LFT, the potential synergies in cost terms and local customer Lufthansa City Line were all key factors in SAT´s choice of Frankfurt as the location for its new simulator facility, SAT said.
