Deutsche Aircraft to supply simulator training package for hydrogen test aircraft

Deutsche Aircraft supports German Aerospace Center (DLR) UpLift hydrogen aviation research programme with D328 simulator training package. The German manufacturer recently supplied a D328 aircraft to be used as a flying testbed for the UpLift project.

Talking about the simulator training package, Deutsche Aircraft test pilot, Conny Cornelius, remarks, “It is a fantastic opportunity to be able to work with colleagues from DLR to support future developments in aviation. It is time to show them the capabilities of the D328 Turboprop as the perfect flying testbed as part of the UpLift programme.”

The twin engine D328 regional aircraft is to be converted as part of the UpLift mission to accelerate research into technologies for the use of hydrogen in aviation. The testbed D328 is expected to bridge the gap between research and practice.

UpLift pilot simulator training will be completed at Simulator Training Solution (STS GmbH) based in Velbert. “We are proud to be part of aviation history with our state-of-the-art D328 simulator training centre,” says CEO at STS GmbH Jan Hünerfeld.

Here, we can support DLR pilots in their training for the UpLift aircraft which will be part of German aviation history. At STS, we want to continue to support Deutsche Aircraft’s mission, as well as becoming a key service provider to D328 aircraft operators,” Hünerfeld adds.

Since 2020, Deutsche Aircraft has collaborated with Simulator Training Solution, which is the sole simulator training centre for operators of the D328 family of aircraft.

Deutsche Aircraft uses the latest technologies and best practices to ensure the highest levels of reliability, efficiency, and sustainability for its D328eco. The OEM is a strategic partner for the sustainable development of regional air transport. Deutsche Aircraft is working with key players in the industry to achieve climate-neutral flights.
