The new facility can accommodate 300 trainees per day at full capacity allowing for classroom trainings as well as flight and cabin simulation exercises

Wizz Air has opened a new 3,800 square meter state-of-the-art training center in Budapest.

The new training center, developed by WING, the leading Hungarian real estate company, is one of Europe’s most advanced aviation centers equipped with two Airbus A320 CAE 7000XR Series full-flight simulators.

As part of a 10-year agreement, CAE is also providing training center operation services to Wizz Air by operating and maintaining the training equipment suite for the airline at the new facility.

The center will also include a cutting edge Cabin Emergency Evacuation Trainer by TFC, as well as a V9000 Commander Next-Generation Fire Trainer by Flame Aviation.

The new facility can accommodate 300 trainees per day at full capacity allowing for classroom trainings as well as flight and cabin simulation exercises.

The new center also houses the Wizz Air Pilot Academy, launched in September in Hungary, which offers young and ambitious individuals with no or little flying experience the unique opportunity to obtain a Commercial Pilot’s License and the perspective of working as a pilot at Wizz Air.
