D228 theoretical knowledge training is a full time, 8 day course. Training usually takes place at the Simtec training facility in Braunschweig. However subject to authority approval, this phase may be completed at the customers own operating base.

Training is completed using formal classroom instruction.

Unlike many other training organisations, our theoretical knowledge instructors are current or former D228 captains with considerable experience of commercial air transport and/or military operations. They are able to offer a personalised, hands-on approach to teaching which will enable all trainees to reach their full potential.

The theoretical knowledge training phase includes:

  • Aircraft Technical Systems
  • Flight Planning, Performance & Limitations
  • Mass & Balance
  • Servicing
  • Standard Operating Procedures
  • Cockpit Familiarisation
