The synthetic flight training phase of the D228 type rating course takes place at the Simtec training facility in Braunschweig and makes full use of the only approved D228 full flight simulator in existence. The simulator provides a realistic environment for training crews to operate the aircraft in a multi-crew environment. This is not possible in the actual aircraft.

,p> All training is performed by our own highly experienced instructors and follows our approved multi-pilot aircraft syllabus. This phase consists of 32 hours of instruction followed by the Licence Skills Test. MCC is emphasised throughout the Synthetic Flight Training phase.
