In March 2020, Deutsche Aircraft and Simulator Training Solution GmbH (STS) established a successful collaboration to provide simulator training for the D328 turboprop and jet. STS is a key service provider for Deutsche Aircraft, offering its current D328 operators with simulator training services.

Jan Hünerfeld (CEO of STS GmbH) states that: “With our state-of-the-art D328 simulator training centre, we are looking forward to a sustainable and successful regional aviation future. At STS, we want to play a key role in Deutsche Aircraft’s sustainable aviation mission, especially with how we carry out operations at our simulator training centre.”

In line with Deutsche Aircraft’s strategy to provide sustainable solutions in regional aviation, STS will install solar panels on the rooftop of the training centre, allowing the simulators to be powered by up to 70% solar energy. In the next phase, they plan to completely power the D328 Simulator Training Centre with 100% renewable energy.

STS is also thinking outside the box when it comes to the travel arrangements for the flight crews, as there are electric cars available for their disposal to transport trainees to and from the training establishment.
