As part of its continuing global support for the Dornier 328 fleet, 328 Support Services (328SSG) has taken delivery of an EASA-certified Dornier 328 turboprop full flight simulator (FFS) Level DG in Germany. The simulator received its certification from the German Federal Aviation Office (Luftfahrt-Bundesamt/LBA) on 25 September.
The simulator will be operated in partnership with Simulator Training Solution (STS), though 328SSG will maintain ownership of the simulator and offer training on a fixed rate per hour basis. The joint team has been preparing the simulator over the past few months and is now in a position to offer slots and training courses on the Dornier 328 turboprop aircraft. These slots can be directly booked through a dedicated page on the 328SSG website.
“Given the expertise of 328SSG in supporting the Dornier 328 fleet over many years, we are proud to partner with them on this project, supporting the training of the next generation of pilots on the Dornier 328,” comments Jan Hünerfeld, CEO of STS.
Dave Jackson, MD of 328SSG, adds: “It is essential to keep our operators up to date with the latest safety requirements and training, and ensure their flight training even during the current COVID-19 situation regardless of their flying activity. Establishing the simulator in Germany is a major step towards simplifying our activities and extending our service offering to our Dornier 328 operators.”
The simulator facility is located in Velbert/Essen, close to Düsseldorf and Cologne-Bonn airports.
