New training equipment and technologies: LAT invests in the future
B-777/9 CEET to be delivered to Lufthansa Aviation Training in the 1Q2020
Lufthansa Aviation Training (LAT) is investing widely in new training equipment and further education of cabin crews this year. This includes the purchase of a new B-777/9 Cabin Emergency Evacuation Trainer (CEET). The company is thus meeting the new training requirements that will arise from the incorporation of the B-777/9 into Lufthansa Airline from 2020.
The 777/9 cabin trainer is currently still in production. The manufacturer is the Dubai-based company Spatial. Delivery to LAT's Frankfurt location is scheduled for the beginning of 2020, where the CEET will be ready for training from spring 2020. After the complete fleet expansions of the 777/9, LAT trains around 7,000 Lufthansa flight attendants annually in all Safety and Emergency Procedures (SEPs) on the aircraft type –including fire and smoke training, door and escape operations as well as safe cockpit procedures and emergency equipment. To ensure that there is sufficient space for the new CEET, work is already underway in Frankfurt's emergency hall to optimize the space available for the training equipment.
