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?
“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” Socrates (the philosopher, not the Brazilian footballer).
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”:
Familiarisation and differences training are critical components of the EASA training framework that enable pilots to stay updated with the latest equipment and procedures, ultimately ensuring aviation safety. With Evionica’s e-learning class rating courses, pilot students can easily and flexibly train to fly new aircraft.
Prince Aviation, established in 1990, operates on 8 aircraft for practical flight training and thanks to cooperation with Evionica, offers next generation e-learning for theory PPL(A) course! We are more than happy of extending our cooperation with Serbian Training Organization. Their pilot students can train on distance for PPL(A) and ATPL(A) licences now!
AeroJOB Fly Academy, based at the international airport in Kosice, provides training at its bases all around Slovakia. This Flight School offers a comprehensive range of programs for future commercial airline pilots.
Pipistrel Academy, based in Slovakia dynamic aviation school promoting not only pilot training but flying as a lifestyle, and Evionica, providing software solutions for aviation, cooperate together to create smart flight training for future pilots!
Flying at night demands mastering night visual flight rules and requirements, human factors, meteorology, and abnormal operation at night. With the Night Rating course, students familiarize themselves with night flight techniques, flight planning, and navigation at night.
Iceland Aviation Academy offers an innovative teaching environment including next generation e-learning for future pilots
Iceland Aviation Academy is one of the market-leading flight schools in the Nordic region. The school has theoretical study facilities in Keflavík and students can take flight lessons from Keflavík Airport (KEF) or Reykjavík Airport (RKV).
Acquiring knowledge and skills is an inherent aspect of human nature. From the very beginning of our existence, man has endeavored to develop and broaden his horizons. In the initial stages, the acquisition of skills came through trials and experiments.
