Since 2015 GFD has been operating four different A400M simulators in Wunstorf on behalf of the German Armed Forces for training pilots and loadmasters as well as technical ground crew.

The flagship, the A400M Full Flight Simulator, has a cockpit equipped with original components, original aircraft software and a motion system that simulates realistic aircraft movements. It is the only simulator to date in the German Air Force qualified under EASA Level D.

Specially trained GFD staff are responsible for maintaining and proving this qualification and the associated identical simulation of the flight behaviour and environment in daily operations.
