EASA EU1149/2011-compliant training courses now available at LTT
Lufthansa Technical Training (LTT) now offers type and basic training in compliance with the new requirements of the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). The statutory requirement referred to as EU1149/2011 states that beginning August 1, 2013, only the new requirements for content and duration for EASA Part-147-approved Type and Basic Training will apply for training organizations as well as for license holders of EASA category B1 and B2. This means that LTT already provides customers a total of 400 practical and theoretical EASA-approved type training courses for 17 aircraft types as well as 50 basic courses in compliance with the new regulations. Accordingly, in June the authority responsible for the matter – the Federal Aviation Authority – approved all relevant type training courses offered by Lufthansa Technical Training.
