SAT presents its new Frankfurt Embraer 190 simulator

Zurich Airport, 8 May 2013 – Swiss AviationTraining (SAT) unveiled their new CAE Embraer 190 full-flight simulator to the public today. 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.

SAT’s new E-Jet 190 simulator is now available for use at the Lufthansa Flight Training Center in Frankfurt. The simulator, which came in almost 40 cases of components, has been assembled there after a long journey from manufacturer CAE in Montreal by sea to Antwerp and thence by road to Frankfurt on three Natco Ltd. heavy-haul trucks. The whole consignment arrived in February; and now, after extensive installation, the new simulator is “ready to train”.

The new simulator was formally inaugurated in Frankfurt today in the presence of various invitees and media representatives. Laurent Privet, SAT’s Head of Commerce, underlined the importance of this major investment. “This latest expansion of our training product and locations is a further consistent step in our strategy of consolidating our competence as a provider of integrated training solutions in the E-Jet field,” he emphasized.

SAT already operates an E-Jet simulator in Munich. And the new Frankfurt location ideally complements these existing training operations. SAT’s strong 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.
