Lufthansa Flight Training and Vnukovo Airport set up training centre
Vnukovo International Airport and Lufthansa Flight Training have formed a joint venture – “Flight Training Vnukovo” – to open a simulator centre in Moscow for the training of flight crews.
The simulator centre will be completed in mid-2010, ready for the first training courses to be held. It will be built in the grounds of Vnukovo Airport.
In the first phase, the centre will be equipped with four simulators and will later be able to accommodate as many as 20 simulators for various aircraft types. All the simulators will be licensed in compliance with Russian and European (EASA) safety standards. The centre will also be large enough to house fire extinguisher and emergency simulators.
The portfolio of services provided by the new training centre is geared primarily towards Russian carriers that currently train their pilots in Europe, Asia and America. A training centre located in Russia will make training considerably more cost-effective for most airlines and will help them to establish themselves much more quickly in the international airline market. The setting up of a training centre will not only benefit Vnukovo Airport but also Moscow’s entire air traffic hub.
Low-fare carrier SkyExpress has its main operating base at Vnukovo.
