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.

Flight safety depends on training and experience

Looking at Captain Sullenberger’s statement: I think that he is definitely right. Now, the question is: How can we acquire a better training and experience in a shorter time?

I am convinced that with the right animation tool, we can!

An instructor during my military flight training once told me: “Try to learn from everywhere, because you will never live long enough to make all possible experiences in aviation by yourself.”

It is our responsibility, as training organizations, airlines, or instructors, to implement the right tool in order to increase the resilience of our pilots!

The solution for better trained pilots: an experience accelerator

We are now able to share flight data information in a form that is easily understandable to everyone, for debriefing purposes as well as for experience sharing.

It is now the right time to start this revolution, using the data that are for the time being exclusively in the hands of the FDM (Flight Data Monitoring) departments. Giving back this data to the pilots in a digital form that is easy to understand and, in a way, that the young generation is already confident with. This is what I call: “Digital Age Debriefing 2.0”.

I am convinced that in a near future, using an animation tool which recreates flights immediately after landing will be unavoidable.


I will be glad to hear your remarks and suggestions and to present you a hand-on experience on our tablet with this new service. Contact me via LinkedIn or via this form: (lien CEFA site)

I am sure that a lot of good ideas and suggestions will emerge from you, airline experts and people versed in the aviation training field.

For sure, valuable inputs will be implemented in this fascinating project, as it is in a constant evolution in the future.

Our goal is to make the sky safer!
