The Count Széchenyi Ödön Firefighting Training Academy holds a dominant market position among airport firefighting trainings. It began operations in 2013, in Hungary.
Initially, we trained the firefighters with Fokker 100 aircraft simulators at six airports. We take great pride in the fact that over the past 5 years nearly 150 Hungarian airport firefighters have received training in accordance with ICAO recommendations.
2019 saw a major breakthrough in the life of the Academy. We developed A320 aircraft simulation equipment for the airport fire services which is quite close to reality and provides continuous practice opportunities for all types of incidents that might come to pass at an airport.
Our goal is to provide comprehensive firefighting training - primarily for airport firefighters - where the participants are able to prepare for real-life situations.
We also welcome all firefighters to our Academy!
In 2014, the European Commission published Regulation (EU) No 139/2014, which regulates aircraft-related operational tasks. The Union has granted a four-year grace period for airport operators to comply with the legislation. So from 1 January 2018, stakeholders will have to operate in the new regulatory environment.
