Airports such as Innsbruck, London City, Chambery and Funchal place particular demands on pilots and technology. With special airport training on our level-D full flight simulators under expert supervision, participants not only gain the required approval but also the necessary training in order to familiarise themselves with the local procedures and geographical conditions.

"Our pilots have conducted their  Spcial Airport Qualifications with SAT and always to our complete satisfaction. SAT has always supported us greatly in the planning of the trainings."
