As part of its continuing global support for the Dornier 328 fleet, 328 Support Services announced that an EASA certified Dornier 328 Turboprop Full Flight Simulator (FFS) Level DG is now in Germany and will be available for training from 1st of October 2020 onwards. The simulator received its certification from the German Federal Aviation Office (Luftfahrt-Bundesamt – LBA) on September 25th 2020. 

The simulator will be operated in partnership with Simulator Training Solution GmbH (STS) although 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 simulator slots and training courses on the Dornier 328 Turboprop aircraft. These slots can be directly booked through a dedicated page on the 328SSG website https://328.eu/training-and-simulator

“Given the excellent 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,” said Jan Hünerfeld, CEO of STS.
Dave Jackson, Managing Director of 328SSG stated: “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 conveniently located in Velbert/Essen, close to Düsseldorf as well as Cologne-Bonn airports.

On behalf of everybody at the company, we wish health, safety and a quick recovery for all impacted as a result of the pandemic around the world.
