Ready for training: SAT’s E-Jet 190 simulator relocated from Munich to Vienna in record time

Ready for training: SAT’s E-Jet 190 simulator relocated from Munich to Vienna in record time

Swiss AviationTraining (SAT) and Lufthansa Flight Training (LFT) today celebrated the re-entry into service of their E-Jet 190 full-flight simulator at LFT’s Vienna training base, together with Austrian Airlines. The simulator had been dismantled in its previous Munich location, transported to Vienna and reassembled at its new home, all in just six weeks.

SAT and LFT broke their own record with this relocation project,” said Marcel Witzig, CEO of SAT, in his remarks at today’s inauguration ceremony. “And that must make them the European champions in their field!”

SAT and LFT joined forces to move their E-Jet 190 full-flight simulator from Munich to Vienna. The device has been relocated in view of Austrian Airlines’ current fleet expansion, and will be joined later by an integrated procedure trainer to form a full E-Jet 190 centre of competence at its new Vienna home.

Three special transporters were needed to convey the simulator’s various components – weighing 15 tonnes in all – from Munich to Vienna in a two-day operation. And the simulator was restarted in Vienna just 16 days after it had been switched off in Munich. All in all, the relocation project involved 35 people from LFT, SAT and heavy transport specialists Van der Vlist.

SAT CEO Marcel Witzig presented the new guardians of the E-Jet 190 simulator with a model of the device to formally mark the handover. “In putting this Embraer simulator into operation at its new location,” said Christian Korherr, General Manager of Lufthansa Flight Training Vienna, “LFT and SAT have again confirmed their ability to meet the needs of their customer airlines with maximum speed and optimum professional expertise.” The first pilot crews began training on the newly-inaugurated simulator at 15:00 today.

Some 20 SAT instructors will be assigned to Lufthansa Flight Training Vienna to work on the relocated equipment, largely to train pilots of Austrian Airlines (Austria’s flag carrier is acquiring 17 Embraer 195 aircraft from Lufthansa City Line). But the simulator is available to other airlines, too.

“In the course of this project we have developed a capacity to respond closely and even faster to our customers and their needs, paving the way for our further actions and activities,” concluded Marcel Witzig. “Working together, LFT and SAT intend to be just as fast in the future in providing resources of every kind for whatever training our customers may need and wherever they may need it.”
