As early as this coming weekend, Lufthansa will be completing a number of training flights with the first Boeing 787-9. First, the D-ABPA will head for Bremen and Rostock-Laage. After successful practice flights, the long-haul aircraft will be used for the time being in scheduled services within Germany.
The new Dreamliner with the registration D-ABPA is expected on Sunday, October 16, around 12.00:13.00 p.m. for a brief stop in Bremen and then flies on to Rostock-Laage, where the crew will meet between around 15.00:XNUMX p.m. and XNUMX:XNUMX p.m conducts landing training and flies so-called traffic circuits. The Dreamliner crew will then disembark and meet with EFA flight students.
“We make stopovers at the locations of the European Flight Academy for the landing training with our “Papa-Alpha”. Not only because of our loyalty to the group's own flight school, but also to give our interested young pilots a first impression of the latest long-haul aircraft in our fleet. We expect the demand for pilots for the Lufthansa Group cockpits to increase again in the next few years and look forward to new colleagues,” says Christian Ernst, Head of Boeing 787 Introduction and Senior First Officer Boeing 747.
