FlightGlobal: Why flight safety faces new dangers during downturn

"The unprecedented disruption to commercial aviation is throwing up the possibility of unforeseen safety consequences outside of the immediate potential medical threat to passengers and crew."

CNN: Commercial pilots blame pandemic downtime for in-flight mistakes

"The pilot nearing three months without a flight was fast approaching a federal rule that requires additional training for pilots who aren't active enough over a 90-day period."


Adapting a changing world

The global aviation industry carries about 4 billion passengers every and moves 61 million tonnes of cargo, representing nearly a trillion dollars in direct economic value. At the heart of all this movement are the 360,000 pilots that safely fly today’s aircraft.

Despite the impact of a global pandemic, aviation is expected to shortage of qualified pilots in the coming years, and the industry is expected to double in size over the next 20 years, based on the number of aircraft that major OEMs have on their order books.

Whether it’s recertifying the pilots returning from furlough when demand for air travel increases, or ensuring that first officers successfully upgrade to highly competent captains, the emphasis is on the quality of training.

This is where having metrics are key.

Whether it’s recurrent training, type ratings, or any other mandatory training, any remedial training is costly. Without an evidence-based approach to training, it’s hard to know where to focus valuable training hours. InstructIQ™ makes training more effective and efficient, without compromising safety.

As regulators increasingly demand quantifiable measures of competency, Paladin AI makes compliance easy through objective performance norms accessible via an intuitive dashboard interface.
