Pilottraining Network GmbH – A Lufthansa Company – signs contract with FTD Consulting regarding a FSTD Procedures Manual…

The Pilottraining Network GmbH – the former Intercockpit, signs contract with FTD Consulting for a FSTD Procedures Manual for their Flight Navigation & Procedures Trainer (FNPT). This is mandatory as the auditors of the german CAA started to examin flight schools quality systems according to european regulations JAR-FSTD A.025 Quality System in particular. Hence, operating an FSTD will be difficult in the future without implemented and complete quality system. This includes also the procedures, especially for Flight Simulators, comprising maintenance, qualification and configuration control management. For this purpose the PTN has asked FTDC to issue a Procedures Manual containing particular flight simulation oriented procedures for their FNPTII.
