We give our staff training in cooperation with TFC Käufer, the training centre which is the market leader in Germany, used by almost every airline; also with CAE and with Lufthansa's subsidiary, Crew Academy. We keep everybody's skills up to scratch by regular training updates.
All WDL's pilots are in possession of the air transport pilot licence (ATPL) and, what is more, have many years of practical experience behind them involving thousands of flying hours. Before a pilot can work for WDL, he or she must give proof of far more experience than is required by law.
In particular, we ensure our staff in both cockpit and cabin are qualified way beyond the prescription in the EU OPS regulation. The fact that we designate staff for specific responsibilities, for instance the security or flight safety officer, enables our operation to provide the on-board staff with a full information package, which means we proactive in accident prevention and the management of all flights.
