Lufthansa captain Jürgen Raps gives a special tour of the new Airbus A380 cockpit, showcasing its latest innovative features. Advanced technologies allow pilots to communicate paperlessly – through sophisticated on-board IT and information systems. What’s interesting, despite the fact that this aircraft features the latest in technology, the cockpit shares the same philosophy as any other Airbus cockpit in terms of layout, thus making it easy for pilots to transfer from older models to this state-of-the-art airliner. Jürgen Raps, by the way, has flown over 350 times around the earth during his professional life as a pilot and was the first pilot ever to receive a license for the A380 aircraft. Image the amount of bonus miles he could have collected if flying as a regular passenger! For more please check out www.lh.com
