The American cargo airline, headquartered in Ypsilanti Township, Michigan, operates international scheduled and ad-hoc cargo charter services for customers in the United States and around the world. To animate the data from the flight data recorders placed in the airline’s all-freighter fleet of 24 B747-400's and 5 B767-300ER' & constantly strengthen flight safety, the software CEFA FAS (Flight Animation System) made the difference.
CEFA FAS (Flight Animation System) is a software that recreates flights based on the data coming from the aircraft flight recorders, reproducing a view of the cockpit, the aircraft and its environment in 3D – among other features. It is already used by the safety and training departments of 80+ airlines and aircraft accident investigation offices on the five continents. Now the safety department of the Mexican flagship air carrier, Aeromexico, chose to place its trust in CEFA Aviation to enhance its flight analysis.
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
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
