With all new operators at LCY...(current airlines), prior to operating, the airline has normally conducted training flight for crew to become accustomed to the demands of LCY and it's unique Taxi/Parking situation.
Did SAS do so with there Q400's?
I can't say I have seen them.
A LH/IQ Captain once wrote in the LCY Cities2Cities Magazine, that the Q400 simulator didn't really give the required training. It's ok on a computer, but the taxi procedures and parking requirments cannot be practised.
So did SAS train?
