The opening ceremony marks an important milestone in the history of Wizz Air.
Wizz Air’s new Training Centre is one of Europe’s most advanced aviation training centres equipped with two Airbus A320 CAE 7000XR Series full-flight simulators.
Accommodating up to 300 trainees per day at full capacity the training centre is able to host classroom trainings as well as flight and cabin simulation exercises. Initial and recurrent ground trainings and type ratings are also part of the training offering.
The new Training Centre in Budapest hosts 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.
The high-quality trainings will be provided by contracted pilot schools.
The opening of the new Wizz Air Training Centre represents a more than € 30 million investment, as well as an investment in world class talents who are now able to reach their dreams of becoming pilots or cabin crew members at this ultra-modern complex, conveniently located in the heart of Central Europe, Budapest.
