Simulator-based training has been an essential component of pilot training and training in weapon systems for years in the German Armed Forces.

In the Simulation division GFD operates various simulators for the different weapon systems. GFD ensures maximum availability for the best possible training through a fully developed overall concept comprising support, maintenance and servicing as well as logistics support for the training facilities.

GFD's civil flight instructors, who pass on their extensive military and flying experience to active pilots and WSOs (Wing Staff Officers), also provide integrated mission training tailored on a daily basis in a complex synthetic environment.
