CEFA Aviation and USC Aviation Safety combine to present eight days of flight data analysis and visualization training



We would like to remind you that CEFA Aviation and University of Southern California will be offering a joint training session at USC this December.

CEFA’s 3 days’ session will focus on how to utilize flight data and CEFA’s leading technology to create training/safety materials to help pilots brief on new and challenging airports, debrief on unusual flights and SOP deviations, help management gather more insight about the operational risk areas and will assist the safety professionals to better investigate the root cause of operational incidents/events. The course combines instruction, real-life examples and hands-on exercises so that students walk away with the knowledge they need to get the most out of their CEFA’s visualization solutions. This course will run 7-9 December, 2016.

The USC’s ‘Data for Safety Management’ course will provide first-hand experience in the collection and analysis of safety critical flight data. To create an understanding of the basics of Flight Data Analysis, how Flight Data Analysis contributes to a SMS, and how Flight Data Analysis can result in positive improvements in aviation safety performance. This five day course will present the basics of flight data analysis based upon real-time flight information. It will present opportunities to analyze collective flight data as would be utilized by a commercial aircraft operator. The course will present CEFA’s latest animation technology to depict flight profiles and examine other sources of data including video and air traffic control data that may be used in creating a data-based safety case. This course will run 12-16 December, 2016.
