Let the magic do your Load Planning

It takes the average person 1.07 seconds to say the word "Abracadabra" 🎩, roughly the same amount of time it now takes a loadmaster to generate their optimal load distribution.

Not only that - the autoload is fully-compliant, fully-operational, and finds an aircraft's optimal trim in seconds!

What to Look for in an Aviation Training LMS

In an ideal world, a Learning Management System is the memory that never fails - the safe place that processes, compares, extrapolates, registers all kinds of records and data, providing users with the documents and resources they need in the blink of an eye. In real life, however, an LMS can confuse, confound, depress and delay its users. So what makes an effective LMS? Why the mad rush to climb on board the LMS bandwagon? What can I actually get out of an LMS? We spoke to Ignacy Sosnowski the Customer Success Manager at Evionica to find out his thoughts.

Pathway to becoming an airline pilot

Becoming an Airline an Airline Pilot

In an ideal world, the job you perform, is the job of your dreams, but the job of your dreams may frequently end up being...well, just a dream. The reality of becoming a pilot is not a case of "Grow up. Grow wings, Fly!", in fact, there are many hoops you must jump through, hurdles to overcome and of course, exams you will need to pass before you can actually introduce yourself as "John Smith, airline pilot and all-round hero!".
Who better to tell us about these stages and give us a real insight into what it takes to become an airline pilot than an actual pilot? Here's what he had to say:

Cutting time, cutting costs, but never cutting corners. N-VFR briefings now in Best Pilot.

The average worker is said to use 10,000 sheets of paper every year. It is also estimated that we waste 2.5 days each year simply looking for things. Research also suggests that 95% of statistics are made up on the spot (though these ones haven't - trust us!). For flight instructors,10,000 sheets of paper is probably an incredibly conservative estimate and also a cause for concern. Wouldn't it be nice to have everything you need for flight training just a click away, not buried somewhere under piles of files and papers or somewhere on your hard drive? Wouldn't it also be nice to spend less of your time preparing for and going through pre-flight briefings and more time actually up in the air? If this were all possible while staying EASA compliant and not cutting corners, wouldn't that be making far more effective use of your time rather than thumbing through, filling out, then filing yet more paperwork?

Safety First with Dangerous Goods: How to Implement CBTA in Your Training

According to the NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board), over 88% of all chartered plane crashes and over 50% of commercial airline crashes can be attributed to pilot error. At first glance, these numbers appear incredibly high, however, when considering the overall decline in air accidents over the last fifteen years, the overall trend is actually improving. Why? To a large extent thanks to greater consideration being given to a pilot’s competencies and not just their proficiency. That is why from 1 January 2023 ICAO introduced changes to the Dangerous Goods training program, making it mandatory to follow a CBTA approach.

It is clear that Competency-Based Training Assessments (CBTAs) are playing an ever-increasing role in ICAO compliant flight training courses such as ours. But what are CBTA programs and how are we implementing them? To best answer these questions, let’s first take a look at the “C” in “CBTA” to “get us off the ground”:

Mind-Boeing - GettiNG the MAX with our New CBT

When is the moment that awareness becomes true understanding? When is the moment that a shrug of confusion becomes a nod of real recognition? Many of us have leafed our way through files, documents and literature - some of them simple; many of them complex. Countless times we have put them to one side for another day, perhaps a better day when the morning coffee really kicks in and the Sun is shining. Other times we leave them, never to return. Why? Because sometimes we may read something, but we lack the connection with what we are reading.
