A PILOT’S VIEW

How to cope with the global pilot shortage? How could the aviation industry use better today’s technologies to massively improve pilots’ performances? How to make the sky safer while air traffic is booming and more and more pilots need to get trained quicker and quicker?

Let’s discuss these subjects with this new blog… to make the sky safer, together!

The resilience of pilots: a definition – how to enhance it?

Beside learning how to fly, one main issue that emerged from the recent major incidents and accidents is the fact that we have to raise the resilience of pilots. Let’s have a closer look at it in this 6th article by Captain Wannaz. #resilience #PilotTraining #improvement #experience #competences #confidence

Pilot training devices versus line operations: a brand new approach to enhance training in civil aviation

For the opening day of the European Airline Training Symposium (#EATS) and my 5th  blog article, I chose to compare the pro and cons of simulator sessions versus real-life line operations for pilot training. One of the concrete problematic is to cope with the startle effect. Let’s comment and share opinions together on this important matter! #PilotTraining #Simulator #LineOperations #TrainingDevices #StartleEffect

How to consequently improve the quality of debriefing: “Digital Age Debriefing 2.0”

In Pierre's 4th article, let us introduce a new concept: "Digital Age Debriefing 2.0". For Pierre, there is a revolution to be started for better trained pilots, who need in the current context a real experience accelerator – thanks to animations. #FlightSafety #Digitalization #FlightDebriefing #PilotTraining #ExperienceAccelerator

Global pilot shortage: How can we sustain the worldwide demand?

Latest estimations for the future pilot demand shows astronomical figures, between 700,000 and 800,000 in the next 20 years, depending on the sources. Can the aviation industry succeed in training so many pilots and can the quality of the teaching be maintained with such numbers? Here is my 3rd article about today’s #aviation #challenges.

Big data for pilots: a nice-to-have or a real game changer?

“Big data is like teenage sex"... Here is the 2nd article of Captain Pierre Wannaz proposing solutions for today's aviation challenges! Based on the concrete example of the take-off rotation rate, Pierre explains how big data could be brought to an individual level in order to improve pilots' skills. #PilotTraining #Performance #Skills #BigData
