Flight simulators in the Training Center Essen

Lufthansa Aviation Training (LAT) offers capacities of three Airbus A320s and one Airbus A330 flight simulator in Essen. The training equipment is operated by the company TFC on behalf of the LAT. All simulators are Level-D Full Flight Simulators and certified by the federal office of aviation, our ProFlight pilots at this location are active pilots of the Lufthansa Group.

In Essen you have the choice between three short- and medium-haul flight simulators (Airbus A320) and one long-haul flight simulator (Airbus A330).

The first A320 was delivered in 1988 and was known as the first civilian aircraft to pioneer the revolutionary digital fly-by-wire control systems. Initially dismissed as the "Atari Plane," the majority of pilots were soon convinced of the need for automation in many of the monitoring functions. The Airbus A320 Family also includes two shorter A318 and A319 models and the long A321 version. All have a standard fuselage with six passenger seats per row and a center aisle.

Fly the Airbus A320 full flight simulator in Frankfurt, Munich, Essen, Berlin or Vienna.

The Airbus A330 first lifted off in 1992. The twin-engine long haul aircraft offers standard seating for up to 300 passengers and has a range of over 10,000 kilometers. The A330 is the sister model of the A340, which has two more engines than the A330. While the four-engine A340, with its larger tanks, operates more frequently on full-fledged long distances, the A330 is increasingly common on medium haul routes. By March 2013, almost 1,000 A330s were delivered, most of which are still in operation.
