A400 M Training: A Multi-National Solution Set

These slides were presented during the Trade Media 2012 event held at Madrid, Spain and Toulouse, France in May 2012.

The briefing was provided by Ian Burrett, Heading of Training and Aircrew Operations, Customer Services for Airbus Military.

The A400M is not a platform; it is a fleet and a system. Training and operational support are critical components of the overall capability of the product.

The program has shaped an approach to providing integrated training and Ops support via an integrated network.

The plane has a very automated loadmaster system which means that a “typical” operational involving transport would see a three person crew on board, pilot, co-pilot and loadmaster.

The international training center opened in October 2010 and is the hub for the multinational training. As the equipment and tools are installed, the center will be ready for training in the summer of 2012.
