Swiss AviationTraining (SAT) is now training pilot crews from Air Dolomiti and Augsburg Airways on its Embraer 190/195 full-flight simulator in Munich.

SAT commenced its new training activities today.

Swiss AviationTraining, which is a subsidiary of Swiss International Air Lines, is a preferred training provider of Embraer in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. SAT has worked closely with the Brazilian-based passenger aircraft manufacturer to develop its training programmes, and now conducts international pilot, cabin crew and aircraft mechanic training for the Embraer 170/190 aircraft family.

More than 1 000 pilots, 1 200 mechanics and countless cabin personnel worldwide have already been trained by SAT’s instructors on these aircraft types.

In putting this additional Embraer 190/195 full-flight simulator into operation in Munich, SAT will now be conducting its crew and maintenance staff training in Germany as well.

“We’re delighted to be passing on our training expertise on this aircraft type within the Lufthansa Group, too,” says Manfred Brennwald, President & CEO of SAT.

Commissions to date ensure already that the new Embraer 190/195 full-flight simulator will be at least 80% utilised between now and the end of 2009. Pilot crews from Air Dolomiti, Augsburg Airways, Flybaboo and Alitalia will be the main users here.
