Cost-trimming opportunity

BAA Training seeks to execute transformational cost reduction, and its newest training center BAA Training Spain pivots first to meet changing customer needs. The objective is to be achieved by introducing a customer-centered solution to distribute the Type Rating program’‎s training components between two sub-variants of simulation devices – full flight simulators (FFS) and fixed training devices (FTD) on a 50/50 ratio. Consequently, the customer‎s’‎ savings can reach up to 40% for each training hour where an FTD replaces an FFS.

 

Speaking about the novelty, Aurimas Urbonas adds: „A strong emphasis on driving customer value will not only aid companies during the period of economic disruptions but also transform into a long-term, customer-centered strategy that allows everyone to stay laser-focused on achieving more by spending less.“
