Lufthansa Flight Training launches A380 training
Operators of the Airbus A380 can now also have their crews trained at Lufthansa Flight Training (LFT). On January 18th, 2010, the Frankfurt-based company put an A380 flight simulator and the corresponding Cabin Emergency Evacuation Trainer (CEET), into service.
The 15-tonne cockpit simulator was delivered to LFT in September 2009. Prior to that, experts from Lufthansa and Lufthansa Flight Training had spent two-and-a-half months thoroughly testing the device at Thales Training & Simulation, the British manufacturer, in Crawley near London.
