The first Full-Flight Simulator of Flight Training Alliance is located in the training facilities of Lufthansa Aviation Training in Frankfurt since August 2016. This state-of-the-art training device is a CAE 7000XR simulator and it was the third A220 FFS deployed worldwide.


The device contains a newly designed Instructor Operator Station (IOS) equipped with two 16:9 monitors. The Airbus A220 differs from other types of aircraft, as all flight control systems are operated completely electrically. This means that the FTA simulator, which is an exact replica of the actual cockpit, requires fewer mechanical components and is more reliable from a technical standpoint.


Level-D approved by the German Aviation Authorities (LBA), FTA works closely with Airbus and the simulator manufacturer CAE ensuring that the training it provides is perfectly tailored to the needs of operators of the A220. This also guarantees that all of its training programs and the evolution of the simulator are on a par with the respective level of aircraft development. 


With the latest update, in Summer 2020, the simulator was qualified according to CS-FSTD(A) Issue 2 standards (UPRT) and offers dual configuration (A220-100 and A220-300):


A220 FFS#1 , with serial number 2TY3, offers dual configurations:
