Topping-out ceremony for training centre in Kaufbeuren
The DFS Deutsche Flugsicherung (DFS) celebrated the topping-out ceremony for its new training centre last week at the Kaufbeuren Air Base. The building is characterised by its two saddle roofs, which draw the inspiration for their form from the roof pitches of the surrounding constructions.
The DFS has already renovated two accommodation buildings formerly belonging to the Federal Armed Forces on the site. The new academy, which from 2019 onwards will train military air-traffic controllers, constitutes the centrepiece of the campus.
