Toulouse. 14 June 2018. The new 500 square metre Space Academy at Toulouse, France trains customers on the use of their Airbus-supplied spacecraft and space systems Airbus customers, who can spend up to a year training on satellite operations, will benefit from the resources at the Space Academy in Toulouse, France
When a spacecraft or system is purchased from Airbus, the future operator requires training – particularly for such first-time customers as governments establishing their initial space programmes, explained Héloïse Scheer, the Customer Training Manager for Space Systems.
Such preparation typically involves 3-6 months of theoretical training and an equivalent amount of practical operational training. “We have some customers with us for up to 12 months,” Scheer said.
