All our pilots are well experienced on their type of aircraft and our Captains have to have several thousand of flight hours experience before they are deployed to lead a mission as a commander. As safety is our major goal our company requirements are more strict than the legal requirements. Our flight crews perform more than 6000 flight hours each year around the globe including remote areas and crisis zones.
Pilot training is a rigorous and demanding process, which is coordinated by our own Crew Training department. The German Civil Aviation Authority (LBA) prescribes and audits the training required and it can only be provided by EASA approved training organizations. Besides the continuing theoretical trainings all pilots have to perform annual practical trainings on type or in a simulator to proof their knowledge and skills. Our training program includes also special operator trainings, to guarantee the familiarisation with our set company procedures.
