CAST Simulation Training

CAST Basic Training Courses

Airport Research Center is pleased to announce the dates for the next CAST Basic Training Courses. The courses will be held in our headquarters in Aachen, Germany, at the following dates:

  • CAST Stand Allocation: May 13 – May 15, 2019 (3-day course)
  • CAST Terminal: June 3 – June 7, 2019 (5-day course)
  • CAST Aircraft: June 17 – June 19, 2019 (3-day course)

The trainings are meant for CAST beginners of the corresponding CAST module and will give the course participants an overview and understanding of the capabilities and functionalities. During the training a small airport model will be set up and simulated consisting of all relevant processes. The general steps required to set up a model are explained. This includes infrastructure modelling, import of a flight schedule, setting of object characteristics, process flow definition, implementation of allocation rules, model verification as well as result generation and analysis.

The CAST Basic Trainings will enable the participants to understand the fundamental modelling and simulation logic of CAST and applying it in simulation studies and allocation tasks.

Please note that available seats for the training courses are limited. For registration please visit or contact us via email:

The registration deadline is two weeks before each training course.

We hope you will be able to participate and we are looking forward to seeing you in Aachen!

Best regards,
Your ARC Simulation Team
