CEFA Aviation, a privately held French company, enhances pilot training and flight safety, developing world-leading 3D animation software and services for the past 22 years. The innovative solutions developed by its experts recreate flights with high detail and accuracy based on data from aircraft flight recorders.

More than 100 major and regional airlines, cargo operators, and investigative authorities on five continents are using the core software of the company, CEFA FAS (Flight Animation System), for pilot training and safety analysis. Translating flight data into precise visualization requires an in-depth understanding of the complexity of aircraft systems and software engineering.

At the Dubai Airshow 2017, CEFA Aviation unveiled a breakthrough visualization tool to enhance further and personalize pilot training: CEFA AMS (Aviation Mobile Services), a flight debrief solution.

The signing of this 6-year agreement with CEFA Aviation marks the beginning of the next chapter in Ryanair pilot training. CEFA Aviation’s flight replay will set new standards for delivering constructive feedback to our crews in a way that would have been impossible to imagine without the innovative approach to secure data processing that has been delivered by CEFA Aviation’s team.

Captain Andy O’Shea, Head of Crew Training - Ryanair

Besides using CEFA FAS for aviation experts, I found that it also helps for an audience which has no aviation-expertise at all. Visualising the data supports everybody’s understanding and creates a shared ‘mental model’. And CEFA is clearly the gold standard when it comes to FDM visualization!
