To be allowed to take a seat in the cockpit of a modern commercial aircraft, you need comprehensive training. Such training has been available at the Aviation Academy Austria in Neusiedl am See since 2004. In addition, professional pilots must pass the challenges on the flight simulator twice a year in order to be able to revalidate their licenses. These trainings on modern full-flight flight simulators are also conducted in Neusiedl.

During a visit to the company, LR Schneeman was able to see the high quality standards for himself: "Aviation Academy Austria is definitely a showcase company in Burgenland. I am impressed by the exceptional services and offerings for the pilots of today and tomorrow," said the provincial councilor. Claus Rhomberg, Managing Director and CFO of Aviation Academy Austria, gave Schneemann a tour of the company and presented him with the centerpieces of the site in Neusiedl - the large flight simulators.

Rhomberg emphasized: "We have customers from over 40 countries and all continents. The world is coming and going every day" and further emphasized, "Due to the international airports in Vienna-Schwechat and Bratislava, the location in Neusiedl am See is optimal. In addition, our customers appreciate the family atmosphere in our company." Aviation Academy Austria also creates enormous added value in the region. The pilot training courses on the simulators and the training courses for prospective pilots generate between 4,000 and 5,000 overnight stays in the Neusiedl area through Aviation Academy Austria.
