How can we help?
Our specific services in brief:
For the Airbus A320 family (A318/319/320/321)
Save as many as five practical training days:
Besides the full range of courses from level A to B1, B2, B1/B2 and C,
along with run-up, borescope and practical training, we offer an innovative, more efficient and lower-cost option for training your technical
personnel, the virtual maintenance trainer (VMT). Usable anywhere
and at any time, and reducing the need to make the physical aircraft
available, the VMT brings sizeable flexibility to the corresponding training activities, while simultaneously lowering costs and shortening the
length of the training courses concerned. (See the separate factsheet
for further details.)
For the BAe 146 / Avro RJ
Benefit from full aircraft and shop access:
Our technical training for these aircraft types also extends from level A
to B1, B2, B1/B2, C, run-up, borescope and practical training. The
courses cover both the BAe 146 and the Avro RJ, the two engines used
on these aircraft and their two types of APU. Aircraft and shop access
are included; and our instructors can draw on decades of on-the-job
experience on these regional jets, from the manufacturer and heavy
maintenance to line experience. (See the separate factsheet for further
For the Bombardier CRJ
Many years of experience work to your advantage:
Our Bombardier CRJ technical training covers the CRJ 700, 900 and
1000. Here, too, our training is as practically oriented as it can possibly
be: SAT can draw on a vast range of operational and troubleshooting
experience with the type, thanks to its membership of and close ties
within the Lufthansa Group. (See the separate factsheet for further details.)
For the Embraer 170 and 190
Sharing our operational know-how and troubleshooting experience:
For these regional twinjets, too, SAT provides a full range of technical
training courses from level A to B1, B2, B1/B2 and C, along with run-up,
borescope and practical training. Our Embraer 170/190 instructors can
also draw on extensive operational, troubleshooting and worldwide
teaching experience. The training further includes aircraft access and
the use of multimedia-based training aids. (See the separate factsheet
for further details.)
For the Embraer ERJ 145
Optimize the use of trainee time through multimedia-based training:
SAT’s Embraer ERJ 145 instructors all have years of personal experience of working on the aircraft. And they combine this operational and
troubleshooting knowledge with comprehensive teaching expertise. For
this particular aircraft type, multimedia-based training is also used extensively as an invaluable training aid. (See the separate factsheet for
