CEFA AMS, a new chapter in Ryanair’s pilot training

In Brussels today, at the EASA Safety in Aviation Forum for Europe conference, Ray Conway, Director of Flight Standards & Chief Pilot at Ryanair, said  “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”.

Conway, a longtime advocate for the proactive use of operational flight data to enhance airline safety, added “We see the CEFA AMS flight replay facility as a natural progression to the existing operational and safety reporting tools already provided to Ryanair crews. Over the next 12 months we will monitor pilot performance based on an agreed set of KPI’s to ensure that our pilots not only deliver to the highest standards of safety and efficiency in the industry but set new standards of excellence for the years ahead” .

CEFA AMS, a new chapter in Ryanair pilot training

Ryanair and CEFA Aviation, an absolute commitment to safe operations

Dominique Mineo, CEO and founder of the France-based software company, is “extremely satisfied to partner with one of the fastest growing airlines in Europe and to welcome this low-cost carrier into the CEFA AMS community. After Asia and our launch customer All Nippon Airways*, it is highly important to deploy our innovation within Europe with this continent’s
No. 1 airline, and an airline with an absolute commitment to safe operations. We will benefit from this new cooperation through Ryanair’s return on experience – allowing us to continuously enhance our mobile service.”

“The implementation of CEFA Aviation’s world first mobile service testifies Ryanair’s innovative strength as well as our strong desire to lead the shift of the pilot training paradigm as advocated by EASA,” says Captain Andy O’Shea, Head of Crew Training at Ryanair. “Our airline has high hopes for CEFA AMS which integrates into our world-leading OFDM (Operational Flight Data Monitoring) system that was adopted fleet-wide in 2004. The CEFA AMS flight replay facility app is a milestone in our endeavors to enhance our pilots’ proficiency. It is the perfect match with our unique OFDM replay facility in our fleet of Fixed Base Simulators. We are proud to initiate a change designed to revolutionize not only the debriefing and training culture within the company, but also for European aviation, thus making the sky safer,” says O’Shea.

Excellence in pilot training testified by 34-year safety records

With 5,500 pilots, Ryanair operates approximately 2,100 daily flights and carries 142 million passengers across  1,800 routes in 37 countries, on a  fleet of 455 aircraft with an  additional 210 Boeing 737-800’s on order  “Training to the highest standards of safety and efficiency  is, and always has been a top priority for Ryanair” explains Ray Conway. “Our focus on safety is unrelenting. Our  pilots are among the best in the business and our 34-year safety record speaks for itself .”

For Ryanair, it is essential to bring back flight data and make it understandable and easily accessible to the people who should always be able to review it in the first line, namely the pilots. Access to data gives a strong and positive signal from the company as a real proof of confidence from the airline towards its pilots. With CEFA AMS, the airline wants pilot life-long learning to reach new heights and for this, aims at achieving three goals: strengthen pilot training efficiency; harmonize pilots’ skill levels as they join from airlines with different SOPs and reduce time and costs spent in line training while always building and improving flight safety.

“Innovating with this brand new mobile service has been a development of our 3-year Corporate Safety Strategy ensuring that safety & security remain at the heart of everything we do in Ryanair,” says Conway.

*3,000 pilots of Japan’s largest airline, ANA, have access to CEFA AMS on their tablets on a daily basis since February 2017.

欧洲领先的航空公司瑞安航空选择CEFA AMS!

欧洲领先的航空公司瑞安航空成为CEFA AMS的新用户,这是目前世界上唯一的可以让飞行员在降落后即时回放他们自己的航班动画的APP

  • 瑞安航空成为欧洲第一家引进CEFA Aviation开发的突破性创新应用的航空公司
  • 这家每年搭载4亿乘客的低成本航空公司将在数百名飞行员中实施基于云的服务CEFA AMS (Aviation Mobile Services航空移动服务)
  • 该航空公司对此寄予厚望,将通过CEFA AMS来强化飞行员训练效率

 

今天在布鲁塞尔举行的EASA欧洲航空安全论坛会议上,瑞安航空公司飞行标准总监兼总飞行师Ray Conway说,“与CEFA Aviation签署这项6年的协议标志着瑞安航空公司飞行员培训下一章的开始。 CEFA Aviation的航班回放将为我们的机组成员提供建设性反馈的新标准,如果没有CEFA Aviation团队提供的安全数据处理创新方法,这是无法想象的。“

Conway先生是长期倡导主动使用运营飞行数据以提高航空公司安全性的,他补充到:“我们将CEFA AMS航班回放工具视为已经提供给瑞安航空公司机组人员的现有运营和安全报告工具的自然发展。在接下来的12个月内,我们将根据商定的关键绩效指标来追踪飞行员表现,以确保我们的飞行员不仅能够达到业界最高的安全和效率标准,而且还能为未来几年树立新的卓越标准。”

总部位于法国的软件公司首席执行官兼创始人Dominique Mineo感到“非常满意与欧洲发展最快的航空公司之一合作,并欢迎这家低成本航空公司加入CEFA AMS用户群。在亚洲我们的首发客户全日空航空之后,在这一欧洲大陆最大的航空公司,并且是绝对致力于安全运营的航空公司,部署我们的创新工具非常重要。通过瑞安航空的经验回报,我们将从这一新的合作中受益 – 让我们不断改进我们的移动服务。“

“实施CEFA Aviation的世界首个移动服务证明了瑞安航空的创新实力,以及我们强烈希望引领EASA倡导的飞行员训练模式的转变,”瑞安航空公司飞行员训练负责人Andy O’Shea机长说。 “我们的航空公司对CEFA AMS寄予厚望,它集成了我们在2004年开始全机队采用的世界领先的OFDM(运行飞行数据监控)系统。CEFA AMS飞行回放App是我们努力增强飞行员熟练程度的里程碑。它与我们在固定模拟机系列中独特的OFDM重放工具完美匹配。我们很自豪能够发起一项旨在彻底改变公司内部的航后讲评和训练文化的项目,以及欧洲航空业的变革,从而使天空变得更加安全,“O’Shea机长说。

瑞安航空公司拥有5,500名飞行员,每天运营约2,100架次航班,在37个国家的1,800条航线上运送1.42亿乘客,共有455架飞机,另外还有订购210架波音737-8200。“按照最高标准的安全和效率进行培训,一直是瑞安航空的头等大事“,Ray Conway解释道, “我们对安全的关注是坚定不移的。我们的飞行员是业内最好的飞行员之一,我们34年的安全记录不言而喻。“

对于瑞安航空公司来说,重要的是要取回飞行数据并使其易于理解并应该始终能够让飞行员轻松地应用数据来做评估。获取数据可以从公司获得强烈而积极的信号,作为航空公司对其飞行员的信心的真实证明。通过CEFA AMS,该航空公司希望飞行员终身学习达到新的高度,为此,旨在实现三个目标:加强飞行员训练效率;协调飞行员的技能水平,因为他们从具有不同SOP的航空公司加入,减少在航线培训所花费的时间和成本,同时始终建立和改善飞行安全。

“通过这种全新的移动服务进行创新是我们3年企业安全战略的发展,确保安全和保障始终是我们在瑞安航空所做的一切工作的核心,”Conway机长说到。
