S7 Airlines Expanding Training Center


Emergency rescue training of crews on Tu-154 and Il-86 airplanes will also be conducted in the new building. In addition, the complex makes it possible to increase the number of types of aircraft on which emergency rescue training can be conducted to at least ten and allows for the installation of 2 mockups.

The new structure will begin operation in February.

In addition, the groundwork has been completed for the construction of another new building of the educational center. Assembly of the load-bearing structures of the building has begun. Four new integrated trainers for use by flight crews will be located in the four-storey building. The construction is supposed to be completed in November 2008. The structure will be about 4,000 square meters in area.

“S7 Airlines is investing a lot of money in the development of its flight crew training system. The training processes themselves, including the training of young pilots, are also being improved. Despite the industry-wide trend of aging flight personnel, the average age of current S7 Airlines pilots has substantially fallen, and this is a significant achievement not only for S7 Airlines, but for the country’s entire civil aviation establishment as well,” says Oleg Vasiliev, Director of S7 Training.
