Hamburg training center gets Boeing 737
Lufthansa Technical Training takes over Boeing 737-500
The Lufthansa Technik facility in Hamburg is celebrating: today, Lufthansa Technical Training GmbH (LTT) took possession of its own Boeing 737-500, to be used for technical training. The aircraft with the tailsign D-ABIA has already logged 50,623 flight hours on 45,287 flights in the service of Lufthansa Passenger Airline. At LTT, it will serve coming generations as a technical milestone and, at the same time, uphold the aircraft type's important role in the history of Lufthansa.
Lufthansa Technik in Hamburg is currently home to more than 300 trainees. Some of them are enrolled in dual-study training or university degree programs to become aircraft mechanics, for example, or engineers. For all of them, practical experience is an important element of their training in addition to the theoretical instruction they receive at vocational school or the university. The Boeing 737 is now available for use by technicians-in-training as a fully functional aircraft, with all its systems, to supplement LTT's training workshops and specialized workshops.
Karsten Schmidt, Chief Operating Officer of Production at LTT, says: "Dual-study training is the backbone of the technical and personal competence of our team here. We decided to buy this aircraft so that we can offer our trainees the best possible foundation in the future as well as today. At the same time we were able to acquire an aircraft of a type that is very significant for the history of Lufthansa. That makes us proud."
Michael Paarmann, head of training at LTT, is convinced: "With a ‘living' aircraft, our trainees can gain even greater insights into the connections between various aircraft systems. The conditions of real flight operation offer a perfect environment for them, for example during testing." He also believes that "this aircraft will enable the trainees to identify even more strongly with their training and with flight operations."
D-ABIA was entered into service on December 20, 1990 as one of the first three of a total of 30 Boeing 737-500s that Lufthansa purchased from Boeing. Since that time, it has been flown all over Europe. The aircraft's last flight, with the head of the Boeing 737 fleet, Captain Ulrich Pade, and technical pilot Captain Rainer Frischkorn, at the helm, brought it from Frankfurt to Hamburg Airport. Here, at Lufthansa Technik's home base, it will be maintained in the future through the joint efforts of LTT, the trainees, and the maintenance organization, including all the necessary checks.
Just like Lufthansa Passenger Airline, Lufthansa Technik and the Boeing 737 have a long history together. Lufthansa was very early in recognizing the need for an aircraft of this type, and during the mid-1960s, engineers working under the direction of Professor Ernst Simon in what was then the technical division of Lufthansa (today's Lufthansa Technik) made important contributions to the development of the aircraft. A total of 140 Boeing 737s of various generations of the aircraft have flown – and are still flying – for Lufthansa, and around 500 Boeing 737s and 737NGs around the world currently receive technical support exclusively from Lufthansa Technik.
Bombardier Appoints Authorized Training Providers for C Series
Farnborough Airshow – Bombardier today announced at the Farnborough International Airshow that it has appointed Flight Training Alliance (FTA), a newly formed joint venture between CAE and Lufthansa Flight Training (LFT), as its exclusive Authorized Training Provider for C Series aircraft pilot and cabin crew training worldwide. Bombardier also announced Lufthansa Technical Training (LTT) as its exclusive Authorized Training Provider for maintenance training on the all-new C Series aircraft worldwide.
Flight Training Alliance will support Bombardier's C Series aircraft entry-into-service by providing comprehensive pilot and cabin crew training to C Series aircraft customers and operators worldwide.

"Both CAE and LFT are longstanding Bombardier partners and will provide the best training solution for the C Series aircraft, during the entry-into-service phase and for ongoing support over the aircraft's life cycle."
"We are proud to continue to grow our partnership with Bombardier in order to support the C Series aircraft entry-into-service training program," said Marc Parent, President and Chief Executive Officer of CAE. "Our joint venture with LFT will provide a best-in-class training solution for the new C Series aircraft, leveraging the core expertise of two world leaders in simulation and training."
"By combining the specific strengths of the joint venture partners it is now possible to set new standards in training for our customers worldwide," said Florian Hamm, Lufthansa Flight Training CEO.
"This additional building block in our growing relationship with Bombardier makes us proud," said Andreas Kaden, Chief Executive Officer of Lufthansa Technical Training. "We are convinced our international network of technical training facilities will enable C Series aircraft operators to build up their technical capabilities. We will support them to ensure the flawless introduction of this new aircraft type in their fleets."
As Authorized Training Provider for maintenance training for the C Series aircraft, Lufthansa Technical Training (LTT) will be handling worldwide manufacturer type training courses for technical aviation personnel. Through its expertise and its experience as a recognized training provider, LTT will also support Bombardier in the development of EASA-approved courseware.
The first simulator and training program deployments will be ready prior to entry-into-service of the aircraft, starting with the Bombardier training centre in Montréal where CAE has built the world's first C Series aircraft simulator. Additional deployments will follow in Europe, North America and Asia. The ATP agreement is subject to anti-trust approval in China.

EASA EU1149/2011-compliant training courses
400 training courses updated for 17 aircraft types
Lufthansa Technical Training (LTT) now offers type and basic training in compliance with the new requirements of the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).
The statutory requirement referred to as EU1149/2011 states that beginning August 1, 2013, only the new requirements for content and duration for EASA Part-147-approved Type and Basic Training will apply for training organizations as well as for license holders of EASA category B1 and B2.
This means that LTT already provides customers a total of 400 practical and theoretical EASA-approved type training courses for 17 aircraft types as well as 50 basic courses in compliance with the new regulations.
Accordingly, in June the authority responsible for the matter – the Federal Aviation Authority – approved all relevant type training courses offered by Lufthansa Technical Training.
Rubin Siddique, Chief Commercial Officer at LTT:
"By approving the LTT training courses by the Federal Aviation Authority before the statutory deadline we have achieved our goal of offering customers a timely change to training concepts and content in accordance with the new EASA regulations, thus providing them the attendant advantages - such as reduced course durations for example."
Thomas Bund, Project Manager at LTT commenting on the introduction of EU1149/2011:
"This implementation of the new EASA requirement was the most significant change to have occurred in the last decade. After all, the idea behind the extensive range of courses was to integrate additional training content into the courses for license holders of EASA categories B1 and B2. The course times also had to be redefined to comply with the Training Need Analysis just conducted for each of the 200 theoretical type training courses."
Electrical Wiring Interconnection Systems (EWIS) as WBT
EWIS as web-based Training
The web-based training course, "Electrical Wiring Interconnection Systems" (EWIS), is now available for customers and interested parties to use. Starting with the requirements and regulations of the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), Lufthansa Technical Training (LTT) has developed this course from the methods and didactic points of view to cater for the needs of multiple target groups.
The web-based training course (WBT) was preceded by the development of a five-day inperson training course on the same topic that has been offered and delivered by LTT since 1 September 2010.
Rainer Sabrotzki, trainer and product manager at LTT responsible for the EWIS training topic:
"The cables are the veins and nerves of an aircraft. Depending on the aircraft type, there will be between 150 and 300 kilometers of cable routes on an aircraft. Hence the subject of ‘Cables' is an important safety topic for anyone who works on an aircraft, from maintenance personnel to cabin crew and refueling staff. It is precisely for these different target groups
that we have put together this training course."
The subjects covered include cable damage and its origins, the consequences of cable fires, the assessment of damage to connectors and cables and how to work with the applicable documentation. The five-day in-person seminar also contains practical exercise units. Whether taken as WBT or as in-person training, the course has a modular structure to enable individual customer requirements and training needs to be addressed. With the WBT and the in-person seminar, LTT is satisfying a new requirement from EASA as to content which expands on the content of the EASA module "Cable Connectors", now renamed "Electrical Wiring Interconnection Systems" to reflect the revised content.
Klaus Schmidt-Klyk, LTT Vice President Marketing, Sales & Business Development:
"The EWIS WBT offers us excellent target-group oriented training possibilities since the flexible concept enables us to train all the groups specified in the EASA regulations in line with their training needs. The target groups covered include not only maintenance personnel and engineers but also, for example, pilots and flight attendants."

Helicopter training courses as web-based training
Interactive learning program based on EASA requirements CAT B1.3 module 12
Lufthansa Technical Training's new, web-based training program (WBT) for helicopter training is now available. The English-language program is based on the latest technological standards and follows successful learning approaches. Divided into 16 units, all the helicopter basics are imparted lucidly over approximately 55 hours.
The WBT satisfies the requirements of the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) regarding personnel authorized to issue certifications for maintenance work on helicopters. The learning content of the program complies with EASA category CAT B1.3 (module 12).
Holger Beck, Chief Commercial Officer at Lufthansa Technical Training (LTT):
"With this new innovative step in the direction of time- and resource-saving training concepts that offers our customers the possibility of qualifying their staff as required and free from a fixed working time frame, Lufthansa Technical Training is further expanding its e-learning training offerings into the helicopter market."
It has taken 18 months to develop this WBT. After putting together the training content and embedding it in a methodical didactic concept, the software solution was implemented in collaboration with an external media expert. Moreover, the content can be broken down at CAT A3 level.
Thomas Breuer, trainer and co-developer of WBT helicopter training at LTT:
"The unusual feature of this WBT program is the fact that we have animated a number of system diagrams. These system animations are designed interactively and participants can test out the theoretical knowledge they have acquired directly in the simulation. Linked video sequences introduce participants virtually into the basics of helicopter technology and maintenance. The setting is highly entertaining and varied thanks to the use of professional speakers. As a result the training content can be quickly picked up, so that positive learning experiences and successes can be gained in next to no time."
