Lufthansa Aviation Training Switzerland

Opfikon, Switzerland, 2019.

New aviation training centre sets new standards and creates ideal conditions for optimal basic training and further education.

In December 2019, after an implementation phase lasting almost two years, the new LAT CH (Lufthansa Aviation Training Switzerland) training centre was opened in Opfikon, Switzerland. At a cost of approx. 50 million Swiss francs, the training centre is currently the most modern in the world for pilots and flight attendants from Lufthansa Group airlines. Around 12,000 students complete their training there each year.

The new centre replaces the previous location and is the first of its kind in Europe – for the first time, all aspects of pilot and cabin crew training are unified under one roof. It unites the complete infrastructure of an aviation training centre, including the Flight School and Assessment Centre.

In addition to the basic training and further education of pilots and cabin crews, the provision also includes type training for aircraft technicians and business training courses (such as decision-making and leadership expertise, teamwork, customer orientation etc.).

The building is 120 metres long and stands on 160 foundation pillars, which were drilled at a depth of up to 30 metres to ensure that the building’s structure is also suitable for accommodating a total of six flight simulators with a weight of 15 tonnes. The materials and details are tailored to the world of aviation.

Covering an area of 11,000 m², the site also houses Cabin Emergency Evacuation Trainers, a catering area, workshops, office spaces, special rooms for cabin crew training (incl. cabin simulations), retreat areas and training and briefing rooms.

Seminar rooms are furnished with the “magna” range from Brunner. The 670 stacking chairs feature both an upholstered seat and back, while the frame has a lava coating. The round-section steel tube frame of the 330 trust folding tables is also coated in lava. This creates a harmonious overall appearance throughout the seminar rooms.
