Wizz Air training 'milestone'

A 3,800sq m state-of-the-art training centre representing an investment of more than €30m was inaugurated in Budapest by Wizz Air last week, with CEO József Váradi hailing it as “an important milestone in the history of the airline”.

The facility was developed by Hungarian real-estate specialist Wing and is claimed to be one of Europe’s most advanced. It is equipped with two Airbus A320 7000XR Series full-flight simulators from Canadian manufacturer CAE.

As part of a 10-year agreement, CAE is also providing specialist operational services to Wizz Air by operating and maintaining the training equipment suite for the airline at the new facility.

The training centre will also have a cutting-edge Cabin Emergency Evacuation Trainer by TFC as well as a V9000 Commander Next-Generation Fire Trainer by Flame Aviation.

The new facility also hosts the Wizz Air Pilot Academy, launched in September, offering would-be aviators with no or little flying experience the chance to obtain a commercial pilot’s licence and work experience with the airline.

Accommodating up to 300 trainees a day from all over the Wizz Air network, the centre will host classroom training, flight and cabin simulation exercises and initial and recurrent ground training and type ratings.
