The global airline - and training - industry has experienced more change in the past year than in living memory. Heavy M&A activity has been very evident, but we have also seen unprecedented regulatory change, and a coming of age for simulation and learning technologies as they offer more training capability than ever before. In the midst of the safest year on record, as well as record aircraft orders, concern for the supply of personnel lingers, with the events of the past year compressing further the time available for solutions. And the industry is still financially fragile with Eurozone concerns continuing unabated.

CAT Editor in Chief Chris Lehman filed this report.

craft, and in Africa the accident rate is almost 40 times that of North America, although it must be said that the gap is narrowing. Russia, Iran and the African continent represent the areas where the bulk of accidents occurred in 2011. Many commentators including Flight Safety Foundation’s Bill Voss, have cautioned that while the current safety records are exemplary, there is danger in complacency. “We have such a fantastic record... improving safety globally that airlines and governments are tempted to say... look how well we have fixed it, we’re done now.” Indeed, some safety indices have not improved much, while other new issues are rearing their heads or resisting mitigation efforts. High levels of ground accidents continue to be observed, despite industry and regulatory activity. Runway overruns, some from unstabilized approaches, are of particular concern. Further, anecdotal evidence from air carrier training departments has pointed to a lack of numeracy, situational awareness, and basic instru-

ment skills in many pilot applicants. Some conclude that an early reliance on automation – even in primary flight training – is helping to create the issues now seen on the flight deck. Loss of Control Inflight (LOC-I) and the related automation issues are now receiving the bulk of the industry’s accident-mitigation attention. Indeed, LOC-I is now the greatest cause of fatalities in commercial aviation. The International Committee for Training in Extended Envelopes (ICATEE) has done much work on designing an appropriate curriculum for upset prevention and recovery training (UPRT), and will be recommending an integrated program of academic, simulator and in-aircraft training. The result of the ICATEE work (see article this issue) will be an ICAO Manual that seeks to update the earlier Upset Recovery Training Aid first published by Boeing and Airbus in 1998. ICATEE will also modify pertinent text in the current ICAO 9625 Manual of Criteria for the Qualification and Testing of Flight Simulation

Despite that business knife-edge, global safety performance has been remarkable, and that is a testament to proactive industry Safety Management Systems (SMS), ever increasing data-driven training approaches, and the sophistication of today’s training technology. In fact, the 2011 global Western-built accident rate of 0.37 is the best recorded since data began to be collected by IATA in the 1940’s, the previous one being the 2010 rate of 0.61 (figure 2). Industry players know that the safety story has always been multi-faceted and complex, with acute regional and aircraft origin differences. The happy figures above only apply to Western-built air-

peaking at the IATA AGM in Beijing in June, Director General and CEO Tony Tyler said “Aviation is a vital component of the global economy. We support 57 million jobs and $2.2 trillion in economic activity. In 2011, some 2.8 billion people flew 5.1 trillion kilometers – 34,000 times the distance to the sun. Some 48 million tonnes of cargo valued at $5.3 trillion was shipped by air...over a third of world trade.” In an industry some 100 years old, Tyler stated that in the past decade airline revenues totalled $4.6 trillion, but the best annual profit margin of the entire century was just 2.9%. For 2012, expected revenues are $631 billion for a profit of $3 billion – just 0.5% net margin. The struggle to keep revenues ahead of cost will continue. Oil pricing, an inappropriate EU Emissions Trading Scheme, punitive national tax regimes, ill-considered training regulations, personnel supply and demand, lingering security issues, and the Eurozone risks – all impact the viability of the industry. April 2012 saw EASA FCL and Ops become binding (see CAT 3-2012), but harmonisation is far from complete, and internationally, the industry is largely polarised into either FAA or EASA jurisdictions. Policy makers often forget the total impact of aviation, not just as a critical source of economic growth (see figure 1), but also for the social cohesion, education and international cultural opportunities that it stimulates. It is unfortunate that the industry has been unsuccessful in ensuring that policy makers balance the importance of the sector with the reality of the business knife-edge it rests upon.

Training Devices. Industry and regulatory authorities agree that the flight simulator is an important tool for LOC-I training provided that the aerodynamic modeling can handle the critical training events, such as high altitude stall recovery techniques, without introducing negative training. Understanding the aircraft systems and automation and the need to maintain manual aircraft handling skills were top of mind at the recent WATS conference with presenters focussing on mitigation efforts but also pointing to the need to not just look at the symptoms of the issue. Some called for a completely new look at how pilots are recruited, selected, trained and tested, arguing that it is still being done in the same manner as before the age of automated aircraft. Jacques Drappier of Airbus stated in his WATS presentation: “Today we concentrate the discussion on handling skills, but most of the problems created by the erosion or lack of these skills could have been avoided by good airmanship, applying CRM, using threat and error management.” And then most importantly: “If we want pilots to remain proficient in manual handling in abnormal or difficult situations, if we want them to be proficient in upset recovery, crosswind landings etc, then we will need dedicated simulator sessions.”

Aircraft manufacturers delivered a record number of large aircraft in 2011, exceeding 1,000 and driven by a record backlog and increasing production rates. The strong order book was largely led by two new single aisle aircraft, the A320neo and the B737MAX. Boeing booked 805 net aircraft orders in 2011, and delivered 477, ending the year with a backlog of 3,771. B737 series backlog was 2,365 at the end of the year while the B777 led the company’s twin-aisle programs with a record-setting 200 orders in the year. Boeing boasted of record orders by dollar value set twice in the year; the $19 billion order for 208 737MAX and 737 Next-Generation from Southwest Airlines, and the $50 billion B777 order from Emirates. These orders followed the massive American Airlines buy in July 2011 for 460 single-aisle jets that was split with Airbus. Further, in August 2011 Delta Air Lines announced its order for 100 B737-900ER Next-Generation

aircraft. And in December FedEx joined the sales party ordering 27 B767-300 freighters and additional B777 freighters. At the close of Farnborough, United Continental announced its long-awaited order for 150 B737 aircraft – including 100 737MAX – worth some $14 billion. This epic order took the 737 family of aircraft order book past 10,000, the first time this milestone has ever been achieved for a jet transport aircraft. United’s order will make it the last of the four biggest US carriers to announce single-aisle jet purchases in less than a year. The flurry of 2011 orders from US carriers and the recent United Continental order represent the long-awaited US carrier re-fleeting that has replaced previous generation aircraft with modern fuel-efficient machines. At the Paris 2011 Air Show, Airbus had reigned supreme in the annual air show order battle with its A320neo, winning some 95% of the single-aisle orders – but Boeing wasn’t offering the 737MAX at the time. Accordingly, Airbus received record orders in 2011, a total of 1,419 aircraft (1,226 were A320neo), and delivered 534 total aircraft. Of the net new 2011 Airbus orders, 19 were for the A380, 52 were A330/A350 XWB family, and 1,348 were A320 family. By the time the annual order battle began at the Farnborough 2012 Airshow, the anticipated United Airlines 737MAX order had been augmented

by a $7.2 billion commitment from Air Lease Corporation for 75 B737MAX aircraft. GECAS followed suit with a $9.2 billion commitment for 100 B737 family aircraft, and Kuwaiti leasing company ALAFCO committed to buy 20 737MAX aircraft for $1.9 billion, representing the first Middle East commitment for the aircraft. Airbus deals included 10 A350’s for Cathay, 4 A320neo’s for Israeli airline Arkia, 9 A330’s for Synergy Aerospace, as well as A320 family aircraft for Russia’s UTair, Avolon Leasing and Middle East Airlines. While the winner in the Farnborough 2012 sales order battle was undeniably Boeing with $30 billion worth of commitments, Airbus’ Farnborough tally included 115 aircraft worth $16.9 billion. In early July, Airbus announced its intention to open an A320 production line in Mobile, Atlanta, and this facility joins the other non-European A320 production facility opened in Tianjin, China in 2008. Just prior to the Farnborough Airshow, Boeing had released its annual 20 year aircraft forecast, raising the prediction to 34,000 new aircraft, worth $4.5 trillion, some 500 planes and half-trillion dollars more than last year. The world’s airlines are expected to fly almost 40,000 aircraft by 2031, representing a doubling of the almost 20,000 figure of today. The Asia-Pacific region will be the largest recipient of those aircraft, with a potential for 12,030 aircraft. Europe represents 7,760 and North America 7,290. Boeing predicted 23,000 of the 34,000 planes (almost 70%) will be single-aisle such as the 737MAX and A320neo. Low cost airlines in Asia are behind much of the demand. “As we look to the future,

clearly the center of the marketplace will be the Asia-Pacific region,” says Boeing’s Randy Tinseth. Some of that market will have to be shared. Bombardier’s CSeries gathered surprising momentum at Farnborough with a commitment from Air Baltic Corp for 10 CS300’s, and 10 options. The aircraft will be used to replace older 737’s and will complement the existing Q400 fleet. Another commitment from an undisclosed customer was for 15 more CSeries aircraft which would raise the backlog to 163. While there is some concern about a pending delay in the program, Bombardier appears on track to meet its goal of 20 to 30 customers by entry into service date of late 2013.

Poaching Pilots In this industry, forecasts of pilot demand are almost as popular as aircraft forecasts. The latest pilot forecast was released during Farnborough by Boeing, and projected that by 2031 the world will require 460,000 new commercial airline pilots and some 600,000 new airline maintenance technicians (figure 3). Personnel demand is being driven by the aircraft orders and deliveries. “In many

seen by some to be less attractive in the US environment. And MPL instructors have specialised skills, quite different from those needed in the prescriptive training world. It is well known that the regulatory environment surrounding new hire F/O’s in the US is changing. By August 2013, the new normal will be 1,500 hours of flight time and an ATP certificate. In an environment where some US collegiate aviation schools are already shutting down their aviation programs, this new prescriptive requirement is seen by many to come at precisely the wrong time, and unlikely to deliver the desired result. As discussed in CAT 3-2012, adequate credit for structured training programs has still not been fully resolved, and the new hours requirement puts more financial burden on the student, and more obstacles to the career. Not to mention increased industry risks for falsified log books (see eCV initiative of IAFTP.org), and unstructured “hours-building.” Roger Cohen, President of the Regional Airline Association (RAA) said: “…this is encouraging quantity versus quality flight time – towing banners can’t compare to sophisticated structured programs when it comes to training safe, professional airline pilots.” In fact, concern over the quality of ab-initio training is equivalent to the concern over the world’s training capacity. One industry pundit estimated that if the annual training requirement is 23,000 per year, the world annual training capacity at full bore is about 15,000, but with only about 10,000 of sufficient quality. With much of the demand for pilots – and aircraft – coming from Asian Low Cost Carriers, it is interesting to see foreign carriers recruit in the US via job fairs. Qualified pilots are becoming a new type of global currency, and for those actually in the crew seats, there is a new level of personal job security as an era of “poaching” begins.

Certainly, CAT is an advocate of applying technology to enhance transfer of training, and as discussed later, a bright future is beckoning for the optimisation of simulation devices. However, at the root, major air carriers have not taken the pilot demand and supply curves seriously. Historically, an external event always seems to arrive to postpone the reckoning, leading to a scoffing at the “pilot shortage.” Most recently, it was the recession of 2008. Some US regional carriers were ready to curtail their schedules because of flight crew shortages, when a stay of execution happened due to the economic downturn. Early last decade it was the tragedy of 9/11 which ironically “saved” the day again, then the SARS crisis, then came the relief from the US age 65 rule. But at the WATS conference in April, several US regional carriers told CAT, “...we have no new pilot applicants at the present time.” The oft-cited “decline in interest among youth”, is not the full picture, and doesn’t do justice to the complexity of the problem. Most professional bodies in the western world, be they accountancy, engineering or medical communities – are worried about the supply of new blood due to the aging of the societies, and the declining standards in public education – particularly in numeracy and the sciences, the so-called STEM disciplines. The aviation industry is less attractive, not necessarily because the interest is not there, but rather because it is seen as too difficult, and too expensive to become qualified. And the rewards – certainly in the first years – are not seen as commensurate with the student debt loads and other sacrifices. Although ICAO’s Multi-crew Pilots License (MPL) is not a panacea, outside of the US it has moved the narrative towards competency-based training as opposed to the prescriptive. With its heavy reliance on advanced synthetic training devices, screening and selection, Threat and Error Management (TEM), and a focus on researched and defined core competencies, the program has largely been a success in European and Asian markets, churning out capable F/Os, albeit not in large numbers to date. MPL requires airline sponsorship, and close co-operation with the training school, and because the newly-minted F/O is only qualified to fly for the sponsoring airline and their equipment, it is

based in Crawley, UK, (to be known now as L-3 Link UK) and positions L-3 to begin competing in the civil market. Many analysts have described this move as a diversification play by L-3, given its military dependence and the global defence cuts. With CAE’s 75-78% dominance of the civil market for flight simulators – Thales historically had 8-10% – it is doubtful that the competitive landscape will change much in the short-medium term. The pedigree and quality of Thales’ FFS technology is well-known, however, and contract announcements in the first half of CY 2012 included an A320 RealitySeven device with Rockwell Collins EP-8000 visuals for Hua-Ou Training Center in China. Also announced were A320 and Boeing 777-300 devices for Taiwan’s EVA Airways, also with Rockwell Collins EP-8000 visuals. Lockheed Martin's acquisition in November of Netherlands-based SIM Industries is also at least partly driven by diversification strategies of another large US defense contractor – SIM Industries is noted for its expertise in narrow-body A320 family and B737 FFS and related devices. Montreal-based Mechtronix is another FFS player, now 25 years old, with single-aisle FFS capability and considerable background in MPL-supporting FNPTs and devices. While FlightSafety International is a major supplier of FFS, much of their production is destined for their global training centers – numbering some 40 facilities in 10 countries – with a focus on regional airline and corporate aircraft training. Last year FlightSafety added a new 19-bay 375,000 square foot design, manufacturing and support facility in Tulsa, and have built over 800 simulators in their 60 years of existence. CAE has also been engaged in acquisition activities, having added Oxford Aviation Academy’s group of ab-initio flight training organisations and TRTO’s to its network in May. The deal comprised Oxford’s training facilities and simulators, and also included Parc Aviation, a pilot recruitment and resourcing company. CAE’s network of global training centers cover the complete range of civil aviation training, from ab-initio/MPL, through to type rating, recurrent training, and pilot provisioning. Over many years the company has successfully diversified itself from strictly a supplier of FFS and related training devices into the largest network

of training centers in the world, covering every aspect of civil aviation training, and all sectors. Yet full flight simulator sales activity is often used as a barometer of industry health and activity, and CAE is the clear leader in “competitive” FFS sales, and when those sales are added to the devices destined for CAE’s training centers, the numbers are impressive. CAE reported 37 FFS sales for fiscal year 2012 (FY 2012 ended March 31, 2012), covering both training center deliveries and outside markets, compared to 29 in FY 2011. Looking at the numbers on a calendar year (CY) basis, 2011 saw CAE pen orders for 36 machines with CY 2012 year to date showing 19. In line with industry activity, over one-half of the CY 2011 orders were from Asia-Pacific operators, and about 80% of those were for single-aisle aircraft.

The FFS Unleashed The training footprint of today’s training devices is expanding both horizontally and vertically, and this can be seen particularly with the full flight simulator itself. This expansion has been fuelled by the industry initiatives of scenariobased or LOFT training, the use of flight data monitoring/analysis tools, and an increasing embrace of evidence-based training approaches. The FFS is evolving from primarily a competency checking tool, to one where its full training capabilities are being “unleashed.” Some of this trend is being driven by regulatory change such as new rules mandating stall and upset recovery training, but currently much of it is specific to a particular air carrier, such as those who implement Flight Operations Quality Assurance Programs (FOQA), and thus make recurrent training more relevant to their operational needs. Air carriers may therefore choose to implement high altitude manual flying simulator sessions, loss of control scenarios, autoflight system failures, training in PerformanceBased Navigation techniques, even “green” operations (see CAT 3-2012). In response, the Level D FFS has been growing in capability. Synthetic visual environments have reached unprecedented levels of fidelity, “edgeof-envelope” flight models are being developed to aid in upset and stall training, synthetic ATC is now available, electric motion cueing continues to be refined, and advanced IOS instructor

utilities have helped yield new levels of transfer of training. CAE has introduced SOQA – Simulator Operations Quality Assurance – designed to apply FOQA concepts in the simulator training environment, which will help evaluate the effectiveness of simulator programs. CAE Chief Safety Officer Lou Nemeth calls it a “...training system performance tool... a tool to justify new training and new behaviours.” Several third party trainers told CAT of the increased demand for customized training as driven by the outputs of their customer’s safety management programs. One of the challenges for these providers is to overlay the current regulatory-approved training programs with these customized needs and yet still meet a demand to deliver the training within time and budget constraints. And therein lies the rub; training is still budgeted by many operators based on regulatory minimum standards, and arguably the standards themselves have not kept up with aircraft technology, pilot demographics or industry expansion. Organisations such as IATA, ICAO, RAeS and many of the largest air carriers have been keen proponents of the trend of injecting operational data elements into training and these initiatives have more than proven their value. And the great value of proactive SMS is undisputed. At the core, however, every time an issue arises where “qualified” crews seemingly make fundamental errors such as mishandling a stall condition or other “unexpected” event, the narrative should focus less on the “symptoms” and more on the entire causal path, including the appropriateness of training – even right back to the primary level. Industry pundits keep calling for an overhaul of the global approach to selecting and training transport category pilots, but this continues to remain elusive. One thing is certain, however; adding unstructured hours to the licensing curriculum is not the solution. The competency-based MPL may not be destined to be fully embraced in the US, but the need for air carriers – particularly US regionals – to have a defined and close relationship with a specific source of pilot candidates, such as an ab-initio school, will be critical. It’s an era where air carriers will need to adopt an “every man for himself” recruitment philosophy. cat

A

t first sight it seems obvious that in defining the importance of civil aviation in a country the immediate focus is on the national flag carrier. In the case of Singapore that banner is proudly held aloft by Singapore Airlines, whose reputation for excellent service is globally recognised. What perhaps is not so well understood is that this success has been built on very strong national foundations, both of classic education and specific training in the aeronautical sector. This is provided in-depth through support by the government, local companies and training providers.

The initial activity was through the MROs, but Lim is pleased to point out Singapore’s capabilities extends to the whole value chain of aftermarket activities to support airlines seeking total solutions. This ranges from aircraft leasing/financing, all operational and engineering support, through to pilot and technician training. These capabilities have been put in place and are growing to meet the constantly increasing demand in Asia.

Strategy

The lead government agency for planning and executing strategies to enhance Singapore's position as a global business centre is the Economic Development Board (EDB), and, as Mr Lim Kok Kiang, executive director of Transport Engineering, says, the aerospace industry is an important contributor to the Singapore economy and we are committed to growing the industry. The Singapore aerospace industry

There are many strands to this support, but two critical ones are recruiting from the five million populace and training them to work in this sector, and then to provide the physical resources for that work to be carried out. Where Singapore may have the edge is that future growth will still be underpinned by an increasingly robust manufacturing base, strongly connected to technology – that is where wealth is created. With those sectors contributing

about 25% of the GDP, and with some 40% of the student population studying the “hard” degrees in engineering and technology, there is a fundamental understanding of the importance of those disciplines as qualifying for a desirable career. Not all these graduates take up a career in the sector, but engineering is still held in high regard here, and aerospace can recruit about 1,500 wellqualified new entrants annually. As elsewhere, there are issues in attracting enough of the right people, but here is where another unique factor in Singapore comes into play. The modest physical size of this nation state means that aerospace has a highly visible presence. To give some idea of the scale of the existing business it is worth noting that last year 46 million travellers moved through Changi airport, with 100 airlines


An important decision was taken to create a cluster of aerospace capabilities so that all the participants could benefit from close cooperation. The role of the EDB in this is significant, as it is the primary point of contact for outside companies and investors. The airport at Seletar was chosen as it had land available and had long been the base for the major ST Aerospace MRO. In 2007, the Seletar Aerospace Park was created, and the longestablished Eurocopter facility has been joined by such major players as Rolls-Royce. Approximately 500 new jobs will be created when this campus is fully operational, bringing the number of people employed by the Rolls-Royce Group in Singapore to around 2000. This site will not only provide the assembly of the Trent range of engines, as fitted to the latest generation of aircraft, but will house Rolls-Royce’s Advanced Technology Centre, and be the regional training centre for the company. Pratt and Whitney is also building a prime facility here to provide regional support for its powerplants. Smaller companies in the supply chain, based in the ready-to-go buildings provided on site, will be able to work alongside the major OEMs. Boeing Flight Services have already installed a campus near Changi International Airport, where an extensive range of full flight simulators (FFS), including two as part of a comprehensive training suite for the B787, is established. Consequently, Singapore continues to see strong interest in the aerospace industry, with global aerospace players being drawn to Singapore because of its geographical location and the availability of a population with a good skill base.

Education As with many Asian cultures, in Singapore there is a very strong sense that securing a good education is the favoured route to success; there is a powerful desire for self-improvement. The quest for formal qualifications for their children is also the aspiration of most parents, who therefore encourage them in academic studies. In Singapore the education budget is second only to defence, and there is big investment in CBT, and the latest IT in primary schools and beyond. Largely through the high visibility already mentioned, aviation is itself seen as one of the nation's success stories and is therefore attractive. All these factors combine to create a favourable environment for recruitment into the industry. However, with unemployment levels of 2%, there is certainly competition from other business sectors. There are three primary routes into the industry. The first is through the Institute of Technical Education (ITE), which provides pre-employment training for students who have completed secondary education. Not least of the aims of the ITE is to instil an interest and passion for the industry as a long-term career. Another point of entry, also available to those who have

One of these, Temasek Polytechnic, takes in secondary students who, at 17 years of age, start on a three year course to achieve a Diploma in Aerospace Engineering. Temasek has recently been approved by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) under EASA 147, so when they complete their diploma the graduates are then qualified as technicians to work at an MRO on airframe and engines. The tie between the aeronautical interests helps with this CAAS qualification, as the course is split between the theory and basic practical delivered by Temasek, and the practical course delivered by ST Aerospace and Singapore Airlines (SIA) Engineering. The Temasek Polytechnic diploma course is enhanced by its partnership with Lufthansa Technical Training (LTT) which provides training, not just for the students, but also for the instructors who are called upon to deliver training under part 147.

Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore It may be surprising to feature a national aviation regulator as a primary training provider, but Daniel Ng, division head, Aviation Industry Division, CAAS, is very positive with his explanation that the role of the regulator is not merely to enforce regulations. CAAS believes that it has a developmental role, and sees itself very much as an industry enabler. An example is the Aviation Open House, a three-day outreach programme organised by CAAS once every two years. The event, targeted at students and job-seekers, brings together companies and education institutions to showcase the multi-faceted aviation industry and present the career, education and training opportunities available. The event includes industry and career talks, company exhibitions and site visits to aviation companies. Not only does CAAS work closely with the EDB, the Ministry of Education, and the Ministry of Manpower, but it is actively engaged with local and global players to help meet existing and future needs. An example of that is the way it worked with the ST Aerospace Academy (STAA) to shape and approve the successful MPL beta course delivered for Tiger Airways (see CAT 6/2011). CAAS has its own training arm, the Singapore Aviation Academy (SAA). The Academy comprises the School of Aviation Management, the School of Aviation Safety and Security, the School of Air Traffic Services and the School of Airport Emergency Services. It covers a comprehensive range of disciplines essential to the safety and security of regulating civil aviation, provision of air traffic services and smooth running of airports. As the students are 50% local and 50% from other countries, SAA serves not just training needs nationally but internationally. SAA also collaborates with international aviation organisations and academic institutions such as the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, which lends academic rigour to the award of a Master of Business Administration in Aviation and a Master in Aeronautical Science. Where possible, the SAA uses local talent to develop relevant training aids, so, for instance, there is an in-house manufactured simulator used for training drivers of the foam appliances. This is placed on a six axis motion platform with a visual system which is used, not just for initial training, but for recurrent training every month for the qualified drivers. A locally-sourced 360-degree tower controller simulator is in the process of being upgraded to provide better resolution and to introduce the new types of aircraft which are now entering service.

adamant that the basics of maintenance training be thoroughly taught and understood. He has revised the “classic” profile of maintenance training, which before concentrated on a solid block of theoretical training before the student ever got near an aircraft to start practical training, by which time the relevance of the distant theory was not always clear. The training now allows the student to learn the theory, and then advance rapidly to supervised access to the aircraft in the MRO, to see what the practical application of that theory looks like on the aircraft. Typically the progression now, to take the example of hydraulics, is a period of instructor-led classroom study, followed by basics in the hydraulics workshop, CBT on aircraft type, and then supervised work on the aircraft. Consequently there is coherence between the theoretical knowledge and the day-to-day practice, and in this process the critical presence of an experienced instructor shows how that knowledge is applied in the real world. Such is the importance of the instructor role that selecting them is a very careful process, where the reputation of the individual plays a crucial part. This holistic approach leads to a more thorough understanding of the integration and interdependence of systems which leads to much better fault diagnosis once the student has graduated. Under this system licensed engineers are produced under Part 147 and can be immediately employed in the MRO on A320/ A330/B737NG/B777 and MD11. The CAAS has again shown its adaptability to new philosophies by following, and then approving, this new training process.

for pilots in the region. Whatever the exact figure may be, there is no doubt that it will be a huge number. A major concern is not simply that that number will be difficult to meet, but that in the rush to provide those pilots the quality of training, and hence the capability of those pilots, could be under pressure. In anticipation of this demand the ST Aerospace Academy (STAA), a subsidiary of ST Aerospace, set up a pilot training organisation in 2007. The primary market is for airline sponsored students, but there are privately funded students in training as well, all of whom have been undertaking training for a CPL/IR Frozen ATPL. That training is split between Singapore and Ballarat in Australia, where all the practical single engine training is carried out. It has approval to deliver training, not only from the CAAS, but also the Civil Aviation Safety Authority of Australia (CASA), the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) and the Danish Transport Authority (EASA). Looking ahead, and as a way of addressing the real requirements of providing quality in the next generation of pilots, STAA took a major initiative in launching what proved to be a successful MPL Beta test for Tiger Airways. On the basis of that success, STAA has recently signed a contract with Tiger Airways to train 100 students for the MPL over the next five years. Adrian Cheok, vice president STAA, sees the future very much as an expansion of the MPL programme as airlines in the region, and particularly those in China, see the benefit of a robust “clean� MPL to prepare new pilots for entry directly into narrow body commercial operation. One part of the planned expansion will be completed when both STAA and ST Aerospace Technical Training move into a purpose-built facility at the Seletar Aerospace Park, thus group-

ing the training competencies. The recent signing of an agreement with Sim-Industries to supply an A320 FFS for that facility indicates the positive start to that new building. With a good portfolio of airlines from the region and China, STAA is now well positioned to play a significant role in the training and provision of pilots to meet that surge in demand. During an interview at Farnborough International Air Show, Mr Chang Cheow Teck, president of ST Aerospace, emphasised that his company is very much focussing on the long term. Now that the framework for delivery of training, in particular the MPL, has been proven, the aim is to continue to carry out a controlled expansion of scale to meet the well-recognised demand for new pilots in the region, particularly for China. The existing facility at Ballarat will, however, not be able to accommodate all the predicted numbers. Given the scale of demand, STAA will need to expand its footprint beyond Australia, especially into the US since, as Chang points out, the CAAC is amenable to the idea of training there. ST Aerospace has an understanding of cultures in both countries, and this, coupled with its proven capability in the latest pilot training practices, puts them in a very strong position to work with the Chinese airlines globally. From a broader global perspective it is interesting to observe that many training providers are driven by short term demands for immediate profitability. In contrast, Chang takes the longterm view, and talks enthusiastically about the possible nature of pilot training in 10-20 years. Will there still be a place for FFSs, will virtual reality have replaced conventional training? Or will there be an as-yet-undiscovered methodology? He intends to explore those possibilities.

The approach to training in support of civil aviation in Singapore is interesting for at least two key reasons. The first point is that a long-term view has been taken that the industry is a prime driver to national economic growth and sustainability. That being the case, the second critical element is that it was sufficiently important that the investment in the future, particularly where building the underlying foundations and infrastructure are concerned, could not be left to market forces. Consequently several different government bodies and private companies now cooperate together to ensure the long term objective. The firm foundations to continue to build the industry in Singapore are in place. cat

Mike Saladin, the senior manager for Simulator Management Services at Boeing Flight Services, parsed no words when highlighting the exacting requirements on visual displays in contemporary training devices. “We consistently hear from our airline customers and our own instructor cadre that reliable, consistent and representative operation of the visual is crucial. They do not want to be faced with distortion, focus or alignment issues.” New and planned product roll-outs, including several highlighted in this article, are certain to address the higher fidelity visual performance in systems required by Boeing’s Saladin and his community counterparts.

Earlier this year, RSI Visual Systems unveiled its RSI XT4 image generator. Ralph Baker, the company’s Director of European Operations, said the XT4 IG was specifically designed to exceed the FAA CFR Part 60 and the EASA FSTD-A Level D specification requirements. “The system is capable of displaying an image of up to 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution at a refresh rate of 60 frames per second in all environmental conditions and uses COTS hardware. It is designed to use the advantages of the constantly evolving PC hardware developments, and therefore can be easily maintained and updated,” he pointed out. Asked to describe the new XT4’s other capabilities, Baker noted the IG includes the world-wide CE-RTS 3D terrain environment which is capable of including five-meter resolution, geospecific textures throughout the GPWS/ EGPWS [ground proximity warning system/enhanced ground proximity warning system] - correlated world terrain background, providing real world cues for continuous en route flight. The system provides a complex, generic airfield that is widely configurable enabling effective training in lieu of a specific airfield. This, combined with

the continuous earth terrain, gives the operator the ability to train at airports without the need to build a large number of specific airport models. In addition, “the clouds are now variable density particle-based, giving a more realistic impression of depth and reduced visibility, and speed cues. With shadows that move with the time of day, rain puddles and reflections from parked aircraft and regional weather effects, and snow scenes with bump-texture maps all combine to give pilots a new level of reliable, immersive training,” Baker added. Baker also pointed out the system is able to support fixed wing and rotary training applications. The XT4 may be used with LCoS (liquid crystal on silicon) and LED DLP (light emitting diode, digital light processing) technology. Building on that attribute, Baker revealed that RSI is constantly

Rotary Training Gary Klasmeier, the Product Engineering manager for D-ILA Systems at JVC, told CAT that the high native contrast of the D-ILA projectors lend themselves well to both fixed wing and rotary civil aviation training. Summarizing the attributes of the projectors’ underpinning technology, he added, “Since the D-ILA devices consist of non-moving mirror reflective technology, there is reduced eye fatigue for training participants and they provide excellent training images virtually free of pixel structure. D-ILA projectors have exceptionally native contrast ratio and natural color reproduction, a key factor in

providing true to life training scenarios.” JVC also continues to tout the advantages of the SH7NLG’s attention-getting 4096 x 2400 resolution. “The higher resolution pays off by enabling system integrators to design simulators closer to eye limiting resolution with fewer projectors. This results in a lower overall operating cost and more streamlined installation,” Klasmeier pointed out. In another development, FlightSafey International is developing its extended FOV glass system for fielding later his year in response to the demands of the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and petroleum markets for new display technology. Dan Myers, the marketing director of Visual Simulation Systems at FlightSafety International Simulation, said the pilots’ needs in those markets for undistorted images across the entire FOV, is paramount to critical training tasks such as

evolving the product range. A recent development is the ability to deliver systems that produce four million pixels per channel using LED projectors. “For a three channel system that is 12 million pixels with 200 [degrees horizontal] x 45 [degrees vertical] Field of View (FOV). This gives unparalleled image quality and improved fidelity for today’s pilot training requirements.” The XT4 and other IGs in the company’s product line have been delivered to a number of customers, including British Airways Flight Training. In the case of its BA customer, the XT4 has been integrated with three projectiondesign FL35 wqxga projectors in a new Airbus 320 full flight simulator (FFS). The FL35, which is also rapidly gaining attention in this sector as CAT learned during the 2012 WATS, is reported by its manufacturer to be “the highest-resolution solid-state light-source projector available with its 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution.” For projectiondesign, the installation of its FL35s in BA’s new A320 FFS brings to five the number of supported training systems for the airline. The A320 FFS’s three FL35 projectors are installed in a design drawn up by RSI, projectiondesign’s systems integration partner for this contract award. Also in the projector space, JVC’s D-ILA products, DLA-VS2100U and DLASH7NLG, are in service in an increasing number of training devices. Rockwell Collins and FlightSafety International have both used the two products on a variety of aircraft training applications.

hover/land. “EMS situations can occur in areas that are quite dangerous in regard to obstacle clearance, vehicular traffic and personnel on the ground. Improved training for oil rig operations requires excellent detail of the rig and landing platform but also need the images to be exact relative to cueing. Both require the FOV to be as large as possible, similar to the aircraft.” Any distortions will cause difficulty aligning visual cues during critical maneuvers. Accordingly the FlightSafety glass mirror system allows the simulator’s FOV to be extended horizontally (220 degrees) and vertically (60 degrees), without distorting the images. The new glass system is currently installed on a Sikorsky S-76D full flight simulator at the company’s Broken Arrow, Oklahoma facility. “It has successfully passed all manufacturing testing including the FAA tests, and will be shipped, installed and FAA qualified later this year,” Myers pointed out. When asked to further explain the leap-ahead capabilities this product will provide, Myers noted that in addition to the improved clarity of glass over “soft” film displays, the primary improvements gained with a glass mirror display are the large FOV, and it is distortion free and vibration free.

require vacuum chambers and pumps that are susceptible to failure. The mirror can also be cleaned. The down time caused by a display failure can be very costly and the mirror displays greatly reduce these risks.” Another company served notice that any discussion about ROI and related metrics will include its visual products portfolio. Rockwell Collins continues to install EP-8000-based visual systems in training devices around the world. The systems are certified for training for numerous customers, including Air France, Korean Airlines, Sichuan Airlines, Airbus and Qantas. Additional systems are currently installed and in integration, at flight simulator manufacturers' sites that include Thai Airways, Cathay Pacific, ANA, and S7. Many more systems are said to be on order though not yet delivered. Nick Gibbs, the senior director of Rockwell Collins Simulation & Training Solutions, provided insights on ROI attributes of the EP-8000. The EP-8000 is designed specifically to meet demanding simulation requirements and for a low-cost of ownership, Gibbs told CAT. Rockwell Collins has control over the design and manufacture of the major components of the EP-8000 system, and has designed the EP-8000 with the best feature set available. “In doing so, the EP-8000 is not subject to the volatility of the COTS PC-IG market and allows customers to commit to one solution for a long life cycle. Our EP-8000 system, based on readily available COTS FPGAs [field-programmable gate arrays], allows for easy insertion of new features or changes,” he pointed out. Such updates can even be done in the field by changing the FPGA firmware without costly hardware changes and with very little downtime. “This reconfigurability allows Rockwell Collins to tailor our simulation capabilities closer to our customers’ needs rather than applying a one-size-fits-all solution. No other system has the ability to update or tailor their respective capabilities as quickly or efficiently as the EP-8000,” Gibbs added. The industry veteran also noted that his customers who have already received the EP-8000 system and put it into training, have found their investments of host software for interfacing with legacy Rockwell Collins products is preserved, i.e. the EP-8000 is plug-in-play compatible with hosts that drove the EP-1000CT. EP-8000 customers also receive other reported benefits, two of which include less power consumption and fewer line replaceable units. JVC’s Klasmeier noted that beyond superior image quality, his customer’s requirements include long life, minimal down time, daytime and night time scenario operation and lower operating costs.

Help Wanted Aside from recent and near-future technology enhancements, Boeing’s Saladin provided several opportunities to further improve the state-of-the-art. While current systems are capable of providing highly realistic scenes and airport environments (other aircraft, ground traffic, carts, etc.) these systems are complicated to set up and maintain, and therefore, in the end, are not used to their fullest capabilities, Saladin suggested. “We need more automation and more comprehensive integration with the aircraft simulation, so that the end user gets a great realistic scene without having to spend hours setting up and then keeping track of the configuration files.” Saladin would additionally ask the simulation providers to

come up with one common standard to integrate the visual system with the aircraft simulation. “Right now, you can do the ground traffic and the integrated weather from either the simulation host computer or the visual image generator, and neither provider likes to promote or support the other solution.” The Boeing official also pointed to a need to simplify database creation. “This should be automated so that you do not need to have custom scenes. We envisage a database that can automatically build visual scenes, comparable to Google maps which has photos of every major city including 3-D modeling of major buildings. This would ultimately reduce the cost and time required to build custom scenes.”

The Human Factors Enabler The visual display sector is pushing the envelope on technology with its recent products. At the end of the day, the integration of human factors into the training systems’ visual display will help deliver the full potential of that subsystem, and enable the transfer of the learning experience into the cockpit. With the expectation that new pilot accessions will move from their last FFS mission directly into the cockpit for their first flight, this transition must be as seamless as possible. In one instance, the ability of newly minted captains to train as they operate depends on their ability to use the HUD (head up display) and its enabling visual system. As HUDs are typically mounted

on the captain’s side of the cockpit in most legacy aircraft, the first time many new accessions to captain may use the device is when they are promoted. And even then, there is some training needed to become proficient with the device. “An aircrew member’s scan pattern is completely different with a HUD in front of you, from when you don’t have one,” Mike Adams, a technical pilot at Alaska Airlines, explained. Adams, whose earlier positions of responsibility at the airline included an assignment in the training department as an instructor pilot, pointed out that HUD-enabled aircrew take in more information in the direct field-ofview. “And in many cases, in particular in regional aircraft, the HUD is very, very close to your face – you’re not used that.” While emphasizing that HUDs are a

marvelous technology, Adams pointed out there is a lot of other cockpit information that may be easily overlooked by the new HUD-equipped aircrew member. “It’s very easy to overlook information and data if you get stuck so deep in the HUD that you’re not expanding your vision at all. It’s a bit of an expectation a new first officer has to realize – when you have your HUD down, despite your best effort, you are not going to take in as much as if you didn’t have it down.” From a training perspective, Adams suggested setting new aircrew members’ expectations prior to initially donning the HUD. “There is nobody who is talking about: here’s what you might be feeling the first time you get to fly behind one of these things. There are extremely few videos of a HUD in flight doing any maneuvering – the landing flair, or even the basic climb, descent and turn.” Indeed, Adams suggested personnel without experience with the device watch a HUD training video prior to their initial HUD mission in a FFS or other training device. Three of many other ongoing game changers in the industry include new aircraft being delivered with HUDs for both aircrew members, more capable HUDs with enhanced vision, and using infrared to support synthetic vision and enhanced flight vision systems. “This is going to present the next level of challenge to the training industry in terms of the vendors’ simulators and airline training departments,” Adams suggested. cat

erhaps the most disturbing remarks in the French Accident Investigation Bureau (BEA)'s final report on the Air France Flight 447 accident released in July were that the Airbus A330 pilots were "completely surprised" when the airliner's autopilot disconnected at 38,000 feet of altitude. The crew also never realized that they were in a high-altitude stall, experiencing "total loss of cognitive control of the situation," the report concluded. However, what is positive about this tragic event is that it has heightened industry awareness of the need to take action to improve stall and loss of control (LOC) training for flight crews by establishing international standards and guidelines for this type of training. The BEA final report also cited additional new recommendations for the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) to take steps to improve such training, particularly for high-altitude stalls.

Strategy Spearheading this LOC training effort is the International Committee for Avia-

tion Training in Extended Envelopes (ICATEE), a Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) Flight Simulator Group entity which was formed in 2009. According to ICATEE Chairman Sunjoo Advani, the organization's mission is to deliver a comprehensive long-term strategy to reduce the rate of LOC in-flight accidents and incidents through enhanced upset prevention and recovery training (UPRT). The approach is to develop training methodologies for UPRT awareness, recognition and avoidance, along with recovery, with the emphasis on the prevention of upsets. "When you get to upset recovery training, first of all our goal is not to focus on the recovery phase but to focus on prevention," Advani said. "We want to make pilots more aware of the issues and have them exercise better prevention, recognition and avoidance of upsets." In October, ICATEE will be submitting its new UPRT training manual to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) for review. Advani expects that organization to complete its review by early 2013. The ICATEE manual is

designed to replace the Industry Aircraft Upset Recovery Training Aid produced by an industry consortium in 1998. "It has been agreed that there is a global necessity to improve this type of training, since stall is the cause of the majority of LOC accidents and incidents," Advani said. "There will be some significant training recommendations in the new manual. Loss of control is something that we are not training for adequately. Every airline does it differently, and we want to standardize it and improve it. Despite the economic situation these days, people are beginning to realize that UPRT training does save money. It also makes pilots better, more aware and more proud of what they are able to do." While the earlier upset recovery document "did a tremendous job" of putting


Training Imbalance The ICATEE organization is recommending a three-tiered approach to UPRT because there are advantages to each of the three mediums for training to provide a much more comprehensive and effective training program. For example, the in-aircraft training can provide the motion, g-cueing exposure and realistic startle elements that cannot currently be experienced in a fullflight simulator. "Practically all commercial pilot training is currently conducted in a level-D simulator," said Paul Comtois, a member of the ICATEE Training Committee and the director of Aircraft Upset Prevention and Recovery Training for ETC. "You simply cannot experience the elevated Gs or spatial disorientation or startle factors that you would elsewhere. That's why ICATEE is all about a combination of in-aircraft, academics and simulator training. A combination of elements is going to help train people better in loss of control because it incor-

porates all of those things that are going to make training programs successful." The problem with the current concentration on simulator-based training is that it puts the industry "out of balance" for effective loss of control training, Comtois explained. In the loss of control, the aircraft is at the edges of its performance envelope, which cannot be accurately replicated in a simulator. And unfortunately, neither pilots or simulation instructors fully understand the limitations of the simulator. "There is not a single methodology out there in which we can do all of this UPRT training, including the actual airplane, because it is simply too expensive and way too dangerous," Comtois said. "So we are forced to employ these three legs of the stool."

Standards for Instructors An equally vital element of the new ICATEE UPRT approach is the four sections of the new UPRT manual. While all are important, a particular emphasis is given to the Instructor section. "We see the biggest and most cost-effective improvements as being from instructors," said Randy Brooks,

information together on the basic knowledge that pilots need to know in terms of avoiding upsets, it did not pertain to aircraft with less than 100 seats and focused primarily on swept-wing aerodynamics, Advani pointed out. The new manual will provide UPRT for all aircraft types and sizes, he said. The earlier document also was not ever officially recognized by the aviation industry and regulatory agencies, and may be too complex for quick reference. The goal with the new manual is to provide UPRT information in a "more digestible" form. Adoption of the ICATEE UPRT manual by ICAO will provide the means for establishing global UPRT standards and guidelines. The goal for the new document is to make information more readily accessible for users than before. To do so, the document is broken down into four sections; one for pilots, one for instructors, one for training providers and one for regulators. Reflecting the ICATEE philosophy for UPRT, the new document strongly points out that there is no one training medium in which all such training can be conducted. So the key to effective UPRT is a mix of in-aircraft, academic class-

a member of both the ICATEE Training and Regulations and Research and Technology committees. He is also the VP of Training and Business Development for Aviation Performance Solutions (APS) as well as the current president of the Upset Prevention and Recovery Training Association (UPRTA). Brooks and APS president BJ Ransbury are currently working on the development of qualification standards for in-aircraft and simulator instructors for ICATEE. "Right now there is absolutely no means to tell a simulator instructor where the edges of the simulator envelope are," Brooks said. "There is also no objective standard for qualifying the simulator instructor for upset recovery training." "We think that UPRT is going to have to be a core competency for commercial pilots in the future, so there should be some qualifications for in-aircraft instructors and those for simulators for this area of training to advance," Brooks continued. "The reason for this is that there is the opportunity for negative training because there is a bit of a deficit of information on this subject if there isn't some sort of objective standard for instructors to be qualified. This is the biggest area for improvement right off the bat."

Current Pilot Training While ICATEE stipulates that the three-tiered UPRT program should start with about three to five hours of instruction in an aerobatic-capable aircraft, the organization's position is that the in-aircraft recommendation should only be applied to the commercial pilot licensing training curriculum for future pilots. Current commercial airline pilot training would focus on enhanced classroom academics and simulator training. This is because there simply is not enough training infrastructure for every commercial pilot to undergo in-aircraft UPRT, nor could all airlines be expected to absorb the additional cost of such training, ICATEE committee leaders say. In addition, there currently are no standards by which to qualify in-aircraft instructors for such training. According to Alaska Airlines Captain Bryan Burks, the Airline Pilots Association (ALPA) supports this ICATEE position, as it basically does for everything else the RAeS-sponsored organization proposes. Burks is the vice chairman for ALPA's national Training Council as well as the co-chair for the ICATEE Training and Regulatory Committee. However, Burks feels that in-aircraft UPRT would benefit nearly all airline pilots. "Current airline pilots who do not have all-attitude, all-envelope training are deficient in their skill sets and their knowledge concerning upset prevention and recovery training," Burks said. “There is a real need from a training gap analysis, and the vast majority of airline pilots would greatly benefit from in-aircraft training. The reason why ICATEE did not make this recommendation is there are just too many airline pilots worldwide right now and not the training infrastructure to do that." However, airlines can ask their pilots to voluntarily participate in the in-aircraft UPRT instruction, and so far one major international airline is requiring that all of its pilots undergo such training. Burks has asked the Alaska Airlines training department to approve such a voluntary program, since he is convinced that 95 percent of the airline's pilots would participate in such a program.

Improving Simulator Performance To address the issue of providing more realistic simulator-


based UPRT instruction in lieu of inaircraft training for current airline pilots, another solution is for aircraft manufacturers to provide additional type-specific aircraft aerodynamic data that goes beyond the point of initial stall to airlines. Then the airline training personnel can add this data to expand the performance of their type-specific simulators. According to Burks, Boeing has already agreed

Above The UPRT program should start with about three to five hours of instruction in an aerobatic-capable aircraft. Image credit: Aviation Performance Solutions.

to provide this additional data for its 737NG- type aircraft to Alaska Airlines. "We are actually bringing that aero

model into one of our full flight simulators," Burks said. "We believe that we will be the first airline that does that. Where we can improve the aero model and improve pilot cueing for UPRT training, we need to do this. We realize that the FAA's National Simulator Program will come up with a requirement for airlines to develop that capability for their simulators in the future." But until and unless this type of expanded flight envelope data can be provided, pilots and simulator instructors must be made aware of the limitations of full flight simulators, Burks pointed out. "There is not a good recognition in industry right now, even in large airlines, of what the limitations and capabilities of these simulators are," he summed up. "During an aerodynamic slew, for example, the sim will not recognize any flight control input from the pilots. The ICATEE manual for instructors will help to define the limitations for simulators. There are some things that we should not do in the simulator (because of the possibility of negative training – Ed.) until it has the expanded aero model capability." cat

ne sure sign of a trend is when prognosticators agree. The statistics may vary somewhat, but the message is clear. There is a growing need for more, bettertrained aircraft maintenance technicians (AMT) to service the complex aircraft flying today. ICAO predicts air traffic to double by 2020 with a continuous annual increase of 4% up to 2050. Boeing anticipates a demand for 33,500 new airplanes over the next 20 years, valued at more than $4 trillion. This will drive a corresponding demand for 596,500 qualified AMTs. The need for more AMTs is providing a revenue making opportunity for the training industry. At the recently held Farnborough Air Show, Lou Mancini, senior vice president of Boeing’s Commercial Aviation Services said, “Airlines are looking for every possible advantage to succeed, from efficiencies in maintenance services to breakthroughs in flight operations and information technology.”

Challenges Boeing predicts long-term growth in the maintenance, repair and overhaul market as demand grows for parts and other MRO solutions. But reaching this

goal will require more AMTs trained to a higher standard. Equally important, there needs to be a change in mindset of the potential AMTs of tomorrow, as well as those hiring them, according to several maintenance training experts polled by CAT. Surveys and statistics show that young people are showing little interest in aeronautics or becoming an AMT for the airline or MRO. Somehow, the message needs to be conveyed to the computer loving, web-savvy Y-generation that being an AMT can be a worthy and enriching career. This lack of interest by young people has prompted many Part 147 schools throughout North America to shut down and colleges to cancel their AMT programs. Craven Community College in Bern, N.C. recently delayed its next class entering the Aviation Systems Technology Program at the Havelock campus because of a lack of students. It isn’t just the young people from the US and other western countries that seem uninterested in the maintenance field, young graduates from technical schools in Latin America are getting better offers from “mining companies or car factories,” said Carlos Sotomayor, gen-

eral manager, Lufthansa LAN Technical Training. Therein, perhaps, lies the biggest challenge. Lower salaries and fewer benefits offered to a shrinking number of AMTs at major airlines and independent MROs adds to the difficulty of attracting the best and brightest. Outsourcing of heavy maintenance is having an effect on who to train and where as is the reduction in the number of line mechanics. In the US for instance, fewer line mechanics are required to maintain commercial airliners. At one time, there were 15 line mechanics per airplane, now there are three per aircraft, according to Richard D’Loss, president, Rubicon Aviation Training, a servicedisabled veteran owned training business. Much of the heavy maintenance for US airlines is outsourced to developing nations with lower labor costs, which prompted a loss of around 10,000 jobs, he added.


Forecasters see a greater need for AMTs worldwide, but there are regions where skilled mechanics will be needed. Latin America will require 2,208 new passenger aircraft of more than 100 seats through 2030, according to Airbus’ latest Global Market Forecast. These aircraft include 1,653 single-aisle, 334 twin-aisle and 41 very large aircraft. As these statistics suggest, the need for more qualified AMTs is there certainly, as is the need for training solutions to help fill this need, but there are regulatory obstacles in the way. Maintenance certifications and licenses and not transferable said Sotomayor, and the quality of technical high school education needs improvement, particularly as it relates to obtaining access to maintenance-aiding technology. The use of technical English is not a priority and that needs to change, he added. But it isn’t just a question of “technical English” that AMTs need. Technical English refers to the ability to read procedures and system descriptions, which some training experts deem as a passive skill, and that is insufficient in today’s world. “AMTs are increasingly called upon to use language in many different tasks as an integral part of a decision-making process, such as troubleshooting, data seeking and report writing,” said HansJörg Lotter, CEO, infoWERK, which develops multimedia-based training materials for aviation and other modes of transportation. Lotter said more attention needs to

be paid to developing the AMT’s “cognitive processes” when performing maintenance tasks and integrate the various uses of language into production through briefings, practical training, on-job-training and team building. Adding to the challenge of finding potential AMTs is updating training programs at technical schools, colleges and universities, to handle airframe and engine service, repair and overhaul work. Another consideration is the cost of providing the training at centralized, along with the dated notion of using a

real aircraft for primary training. Taking commercial aircraft out of revenue service for AMT training purposes is costly to the operator and may not help AMTs during primary training. What’s to be done to ensure there is an adequate supply of well-trained AMT’s? Several AMT training experts, some of whom gave presentations at WATS 2012, said there needs to be stronger alliances between the airline and aerospace industries, regulatory authorities, as well as technical schools, colleges and universities that offer AMT courses. These alliances need to be substantive if they’re going to have a positive impact. Airbus Competence Training (ACT) is one program that demonstrates the evolving approach to AMT training. Action, practical training and experience accounts for 80% of AMT’s training with ACT, compared to the 10%, 20% and 30% for the traditional read, hear and seebased training format. 73% of those who took ACT make less maintenance errors and 87% remove components inappropriately, according to Michael Kalbow, senior director, Airbus Training Center. Distance learning and E-learning is an integral part of ACT, as is a strong collaboration with academia. Airbus has teaching arrangements with Trinity College, Dublin; Toulouse Mirail University, France; University of Hamburg, Germany; Centre National de la Recherché Scientifique, France; and the Swiss Center for Innovation in Learning, Switzerland.

Maintenance Training

Adaptable Approach A more flexible approach to AMT training is needed today, according to Michele Asmar, director Learning Innovation, Training Solutions, CAE and her colleague Pierre Bérubé, product manager. That would include more webbased and mobile training solutions as well as an operations oriented, troubleshooting approach to line maintenance. Smart and virtual classroom, plus webbased e-learning is a must to meet the challenge. Better troubleshooting training could lead to an 80% reduction in gate returns, said Erik Tobler, Aerosim commercial manager for Latin American & Caribbean. CAE has developed a three-dimensional integrated virtual learning environment for AMT training that can enhance training systems, inspection and walkaround and troubleshooting. The CAE 3D experience provides live collaboration for product lifecycle management and can link fault isolation and aircraft maintenance manuals to 3D models. The incorporation of Computer Aided Three-dimension Interactive Application (CATIA) models from aircraft and engine makers is one of the biggest advances in AMT training today, according to several training equipment and solutions providers. “As regulators call for more inspections, commercial aircraft get older, and

more experienced technicians retire, it will be more important than ever to train a new generation of computer-savvy technicians to standard in less time,” said Arnold Van Den Hoeven, senior director, Global Defense Sector, NGRAIN Corp. “We see a future where airline maintenance technicians will be trained with the types of equipment simulations that military organizations have been using over the past decade to accelerate training and improve technician performance,” Van Den Hoeven said.

Instructors In the age of leaping advances in software and hardware training tools, the dilemma is how to effectively keep the instructor an integral part of the training process. Today’s instructor has morphed from lecturer to participating instructor to personal coach to media manager, said Aerosim’s Tobler. There is also the dynamic between student and teacher to consider. Today’s students, whether they’re potential AMTs or pilots, are more independent in how they want to learn. They’re more visual, preferring graphics to text and are part of “complex social networks,” according to a 2011 ICAO Training Report. Keeping them interested is challenging. CAE has developed a suite of tools to support the delivery of technical digital

media. “From an instructor’s perspective, it is the equivalent of them having an electronic lesson plan,” Asmar said, “which they can click on and it will bring up the technology.” In the early days of simulation development, “our products were very powerful, but not instructor friendly,” she admitted. This suite of tools helps ensure that the instructor is an important element to the training experience. AMTs of tomorrow must be more than wrench turners. “In the context of new technologies, globalization and new demanding information strategies, AMTs will require new competencies and will need to integrate them into their daily work,” recommended Lotter. A “mission oriented” holistic approach should be established as a basic concept for future AMTs and integrated into the training process, he added. Several training experts agree that regulatory agencies and training groups need to be able to develop training templates that include “digital natives,” young people that grew up with the internet and its related devices, and “digital immigrants,” those that need to learn the new way of communications and training.

Sisyphus Syndrome AMTs and their trainers need to evolve in the same fashion, as did pilots and their instructors. But that is easier said than

Scott Ariotti has a dream. The director of Global Marketing for DiSTI, a developer of virtual maintenance training devices, would like the word “virtual” to automatically precede the words “maintenance training.” A pipedream, perhaps, but his point is well taken. Virtual is reality these days when it comes to training. “Our goal is to continue to develop the virtualized maintenance solutions so the word “training” is something you do, not a place you go,” Ariotti said. DiSTI’s virtual training systems allow AMTs some “indepth prep” on, say, how to tear down an engine rather than wait for instruction in the classroom or on the shop floor, Ariotti said. DiSTI training solutions provide 3-D interactive environments, which use some of the same graphical rendering techniques found in video games. Ariotti gave the following link to view an online example of an internal combustion engine:http:// disti.com/Products/Replic8/Cummins855_Engine_Demo.html A number of DiSTI virtual training devices include advanced display technology, video game style connections and intelligent tutoring systems and, in some cases, avatars for visual interactive team training, according to promotional materials.

Elsewhere, CAT found AMT related training news worth noting. FlightLine Training Services (FTS), Canada’s largest privately owned maintenance training company, and its partners plan to open a training center in Dubai during the fourth quarter 2012. The center will provide the Gulf region with pilot, flight attendant training and maintenance. It will provide maintenance training on around 30 different aircraft from King Airs to Boeing 777 and pilot and flight attendant training on B737NG and Airbus A320, said CEO Phyl Durdey. Hellenic Aviation Training Academy, a training center located near Athens International Airport, is one of FTS’s partners. Names of the other partners will be announced within a month, he said. FTS is a Transport Canada and EASA approved training organization, serving customers in 25 countries worldwide. Mainly focusing on the regional aircraft market, FTS recently ventured into “heavy” aircraft training with a new contract with Air Canada and corporate aircraft training with its lead-off Global Express customer Bombardier Aerospace.

has passed two laws (HR 5900 and, more recently, the FAA reauthorization bill) that require rulemaking for AMT training and set deadlines. At present, FAA is working its way through those requirements.” Douglas was asked if the FAA favors one universal standard to obtain an AMT license, which would in effect combine the standards of EASA and FAA. “We aren’t considering changes to the AMT certificate (A&P rating) at present,” he said. While there are significant advances in AMT training, there are dwindling numbers of students. As a result, some Part 147 schools have closed. Douglas said FAA is working on some initiatives within the Aviation and Space Education program to showcase the profession to younger students in middle schools and high schools. One effort piloted in June, dubbed “A Walk in my Boots,” is working to facilitate partnerships between high schools and repair stations “to show young people what career avenues are open in the aviation maintenance industry,” Douglas said. FAA also is trying to make it easier for military AMTs to obtain their Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) certificate so they can continue work in the civil sector. This includes using a program already in place to evaluate military experience, and give credit for it. Veterans are tested in the three areas necessary to obtain an A&P rating: general, airframe and powerplant. The veteran is given credit for work done in the military and can go back to a Part 147 certificated maintenance school and learn the required courses needed for an A&P license. Adopting new technologies and solutions, forming partnerships with relevant players in the air transportation business and updating regulations is only part of the solution for training the AMTs of tomorrow. Trainers need to include AMT trainees when developing programs. “Our younger generation needs to have a stronger voice in shaping their future industry,” said Lotter. “I am convinced that we can only achieve an evolutionary industry development process if we find the right balance between young, fresh and innovative new ideas from our future fellowships and the worthwhile experience from existing industry members.” cat

done. There appears to be resistance to improve and evolve AMT training programs and some of that resistance emanates from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), according to several training experts. A major impediment to updating training standards for AMTs is that the regulation, 14CFR, has not been revised since 1992, and even then the changes made were considered minor, said Terry Michmerhuizen, assistant professor, College of Aviation, Western Michigan University. Meaning, the AMT industry still must conform to 1970 and earlier mandated training standards. Even today, there is a training requirement for applying fabric and fiberglass covering materials. That is a fine skill if the mechanic is working on a Sopwith Camel, a single-seat biplane fighter aircraft first introduced by the British in 1917 on the Western Front. But the requirement is not very practical for MRO work on today’s modern airliners. There isn’t, for instance, an FAA training requirement for composite inspection and repair. Despite the upgraded training devices, Michmerhuizen said AMTs would still need instruction in the four Cs: critical thinking skills, concern for quality and integrity, comprehension of the effects of human factors on their work and learn how to communicate effectively. The US regulatory process remains cumbersome. As such, it is very difficult to incorporate new regulations that are in line with new technology, according to Rubicon’s D’Loss. And that can have an effect on AMT training, although several trainers and aircraft operators have modernized training programs on their own. In the 1990s, maintenance experts tried to push for an extra license for composite repair “and it went absolutely no where,” D’Loss remembered. CAT asked the FAA the same question it asked the agency over the last two years: When will the FAA update maintenance regulations and training standards? “We are hoping to publish a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking and update the maintenance training regulation for Part 121 and Part 135 aircraft with ten or more seats in the near future,” said Steve Douglas, FAA manager of the Aircraft Maintenance Division in Flight Standards. “Congress

afety training is often at the forefront of any discussion about cabin crew training, and this time it is the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) leading that discussion. ICAO is revising its documentation that addresses initial and recurrent safety training requirements for cabin crew members. As part of this revision, ICAO is developing a competency-based approach to cabin crew safety training. The objective is to raise awareness of the importance of safety training, to develop a competency framework and to provide additional guidance on training aspects not addressed by ICAO standards. Martin Maurino, Safety and Efficiency Support Officer, Air Navigation Bureau, ICAO, spoke at WATS 2012 and explained that a competency-based approach is observable and measureable, has flexible implementation and can be used as a tool to improve quality in training. ICAO is defining cabin crew competencies for safety duties and responsibilities during normal operations, abnormal and emergency situations. It is also developing core competencies for soft skills, and training guidance material will be re-written to align with this approach. The next steps for ICAO are to develop competency frameworks for securityrelated duties and responsibilities, cabin health and dangerous goods. Maurino concluded that the competency-based

approach will enhance job performance and provide flexibility to air operators. ICAO’s guidance material will address a wide range of issues and raise awareness of the importance of cabin crew safety training. Hong Kong Airlines has initiated a special training program to enable its cabin crew to deal with unruly passengers. All operational flight attendants are now fully Wing Chun martial arts trained. The training is compulsory for all the airline’s cabin crew members and it aims to promote inner balance and core strength, needed for the rigors of the job, and enables them to deal with any potential challenges. Primarily taught as self defence, the moves are designed to be accomplished in a restrictive space. Each cabin crew member must complete a three hour training course before they operate on their first flight. Crew members train in their uniforms to prepare them for real life situations.

Generation Y The challenges of performing training for new hire ‘Generation Y’ were highlighted in CAT issue 2/2012, and this is a subject that is a relatively new issue for cabin training departments. Training methods are being refined to encompass the learning styles of new cabin crew members entering training programmes. Anna Mellberg Karlsson, Chief Cabin Safety Instructor at Novair told CAT that

as instructors they have a lot to learn to teach the ‘net generation’. Cabin Aviation Training (CAT) of Sweden uses the web in many forms in the classroom, from YouTube and Google to Facebook. Studies have shown that ‘Generation Y’ students prefer using these tools as additional methods of learning. Instructors in all training departments have had to refine their training methods to encompass these new learning styles. The difference between ‘Generation Y’ students and ‘oldies’ is most prominent in the classroom, however once practical training starts, the differences are negligible. Post-course evaluations at Novair have shown that crew members need and want more practical training and the airline is looking to implement this.

AQP The primary goal for the Advanced Qualification Program has always been straightforward, to encourage innovation in the methods and technology of training and evaluation in aviation. United Airlines used AQP during their merger with Continental, and as a result the airline has developed integration training methodology and supporting documentation. A SME working group of subsidiary Continental and United inflight employees was assembled and AQP Entry Level Analysis was conducted to determine necessary knowledge and skills and appropriate mitigation strategy. The airline then developed Integration Training CBT and incorporated feedback from AFA and the FAA. Once the Integration CBT was launched, data review meetings took place every two weeks with the FAA ERT. According to Maria Teresa Cook, Inflight Training AQP Manager at United there was an overwhelmingly positive feedback from flight attendant evaluations on the course. All active flight attendants completed the Integration Training one month prior to the issuance of a single operating certificate. United’s vision for AQP includes “expand our current proficiency training model, develop training that encompasses CRM and Threat & Error Management, continue to be innovative in training development and delivery, and to deliver training that results in a better trained flight attendant core.” Tiffany LaTour, Manager Inflight Program Development at US Airways explained that AQP is transforming airline training into a rewarding adult learning experience where crewmembers feel


valued and confident in their abilities to perform as safety professionals. The key focus areas moving forward for US Airways include improving operational effectiveness, having consistency in delivery and execution and driving continuous improvement.

Equipment The training device market still seems to be buoyant and a number of training devices specifically tailored to cabin crew training have been sold and installed over the past year around the world. Aviation Reproduction Inc., based in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, has completed an A320 door trainer for Jetstar Airways Japan, the second door trainer the company has manufactured and shipped to Asia. The device features a cabin mock-up of the left side of the fuselage from main entry to over wing exit. The doors function as per the aircraft and are additionally equipped with visual cues indicating a water ditching or fire on landing. Also going to Japan will be an Embraer E175 extended door trainer from RP Aero Systems, destined for the training centre of Fuji Dream Airlines. This trainer consists of a 1L main door with a cabin section, passenger seats and part

functional 1R and 2L doors. The 1L door includes RP’s advanced electronic door hinge and handle control system. UK company EDM have had continued success in China with a contract with the Xian Feibao Airport Equipment Company to supply aircraft training equipment to a number of Chinese airlines. The contract included the provision of EDM’s B737 evacuation training equipment to Xiamen Airlines and Hainan Airlines. EDM have developed intelligent operating systems to replicate the aircraft cabin and provide Xiamen, Hainan and Sichuan Airlines with CEET (cabin emergency evacuation trainer) motion flight control and flight scenario software, Instructor Operating Station (IOS) software and lesson planning, together with a cabin audio sound system and scene visual systems for doors and windows. TFC Simulatoren und Technik GmbH have been awarded a number of new contracts and completed installations over the past 12 months. These have included an A320/A321 CEET for Turkish Airlines, a B787 door trainer for Qatar Airways, a B777 door trainer for Aeroflot Russian Airlines and for Jordan Airline Training and Simulation (JATS) an Embraer 195 door trainer.

Condor Airlines new training centre in Frankfurt, Germany will be home to two CEET’s and a B757 door trainer, and an A330 emergency simulator for Alitalia is another contract won. TFC has opened its fourth training centre at Cologne Airport in Germany, which is equipped with a new A320 cabin emergency evacuation trainer for Germanwings. Spatial Composite Solutions played a major role in the opening of a new cabin trainer facility for Virgin American by providing a full-size cabin replica of a Virgin America A320 aircraft. The trainer features an enhanced cabin layout complete with galleys, seats, overhead stowage bins, operational PSU’s and an over wing exit. The company also won a $2.2million contract with Gulf Aviation Academy to build and install A320 and EMB190 CEET’s at GAA’s headquarters in Muharraq, Kingdom of Brunei. The two simulators are scheduled to be operational at GAA’s training facility in Bahrain in July 2012. Cabin crew training continues to evolve with emphasis starting to be placed on social media as a training medium running alongside traditional training, but the overwhelming view is that practical training is still the most effective. cat

ith a population of 5.5 million, Finland may not at first sight seem to have sufficient critical mass to influence trends in pilot training. That raw number, however, does not reflect the nearly unique structure of society in Finland, where a very strong model of the welfare state sees vigorous government support of most aspects of dayto-day living. International assessments regularly see the country rated in the global top four for educational achievement, and continuing central support for both professional and vocational training ensures major investment in the skills and new technology needed by an upcoming generation. This is demonstrably true of the civil aviation sector, where there is a high level of financial support for those who wish to train as pilots. The majority of pilot training organisations are at least part owned by some government interest, although there is also a small throughput from privately-owned pilot training companies.

Finnair Flight Academy There is no doubt that the vast majority of aspiring pilots in Finland wish to

join Finnair. The national flag carrier is seen as representing national pride, and the potential for a long-term career, however uncertain that may be in the present global economic climate, is attractive. Two years ago the training functions at Finnair were regrouped into the Finnair Flight Academy, based in Helsinki, and it is here that most of the high end training devices are installed. For a considerable time this TRTO has provided Finnair with the full range of pilot training courses, from initial type rating, through recurrent training via a comprehensive selection of e-learning options and safety, fire emergency evacuation and door trainers. These latter courses are part of the comprehensive cabin crew training which is available. Not only does the academy provide the full training needs for Finnair itself, but there is significant business to be had with third party training. At the moment some 50% of the turnover is for this market, with the aim to grow it to 70%. Recognising that any training has to make sense commercially, Mikko Salminen, managing director, Finnair Flight Academy, makes clear the focus for the business; the headline for their training

is - "Cutting Edge Means Cutting Costs", and one of the major initiatives in doing this addresses not just the challenge of reducing costs but also embraces environmental concerns. Through the training and adoption of more efficient procedures, Finnair claims to have reduced total operating costs by 2.9% - a significant increment. Based on this experience, Finnair Flight Academy has designed two training concepts that are utilising the lessons learnt. Salminen indicates that the first, Fit to Fly, looks at all aspects of the recurrent training needs of a specific airline and is tailored to provide a customised recurrent training solution. Tero Arra, the head of Training, says that the key is getting the detail right and making sometimes just small changes, but many of them in a lot of areas, so the second programme, The Reverse Green Type Rating Programme, drills down to the level of flight deck crews, and


Patria is owned by the Finnish government and EADS, and with an annual turnover of more than €600m it provides, amongst other products, a robust range of pilot training for the Finnish Air Force, from ab initio to all the ground school and simulator training on the BAe Hawk aircraft. There is consequently a natural synergy in carrying out ab initio training of civil pilots. These civil programmes date from 1998, and presently embrace “classic” EASA ab initio training using a modern fleet of aircraft and training devices at the Helsinki – Malmi airfield, and runs to 10,000 hours of civil aviation flight training annually. There have also been students from nearby Russia, from the St Petersburg State University of Civil Aviation (UCA), which since 2009 has been sending student pilots funded by the Government of Russia here. Building on that solid background, Patria is about to launch a well-planned Multi-Crew Pilot Licence (MPL) together with Finnair Flight Academy, initially for the issue of an A320 type rating, with the longer term plan eventually to include other aircraft types. The Multifly programme draws on the combined talents of four partners. These are Patria Pilot Training (JARFTO), Finnair Flight Academy (JARTRTO), Finnish Aviation Academy Oy (owned by Finnair, Government of Finland and City of Pori), and Prewise Oy. The first students are due to start in Q1 2013 and the training will lead to an A320 type rating. The course includes 100 hours of flight time complemented by 140 FTD time, and will take 20 months.

Finnish Aviation Academy With the Finnish government and Finnair PLC each owning 49.5% of the Finnish Aviation Academy (FAA) and the remaining 1% to the city of Pori where the FAA is based, the commitment of public bodies to civil aviation training is evident. The FAA was established in 2002 to train professional pilots for the Finnish aviation industry. Once again the five step selection process is critical, with some 100 student pilots being selected from about 1000 candidates – a process which takes place every two years. The next one will be in 2013. The FAA delivers training to EASA licenses, and the complete course lasts two and a half years. Those who were at WATS this year heard from Sauli Kuortti, head of training, as he explained the FAA philosophy. What is particularly striking is the use of an Embraer Phenom 100 for the multi-engine phase. The rationale behind this is that right from the start of their career the new pilots are introduced to, and are familiar with, jet aircraft performance and challenges, preparing them very effectively for immediate placement with narrow body jet aircraft in airline service. The course includes 220 flight hours (including three hours Upset Recovery in an Extra 300), with 60 hours of synthetic training and 850 hours of theoretical training. The final link in this process is the formal approval by the Finnish Civil Aviation Authority.

Patria – and Multifly

The chief flying instructor at Patria, Juhani Haapamaki, is keen to show the advantages of the Garmin-equipped instrumentation in the all-weather Cirrus 22 aircraft. He believes that because the new pilots will be familiar with both a side-stick controller and glass cockpit right from the start, they will have a definite advantage when moving to the Airbus A320. The practical training will be supported by theoretical training which blends classroom training with modern e-learning and testing. Mikko Paronen, accountable manager at Patria, believes that “by benefitting from the extensive experience that Finnair has in operating Airbus aircraft, this A320 MPL course will provide an excellent start for pilots entering directly into airline service after licence issue. Multifly will initially be offered to foreign airlines.“

educates them in the necessity to take efficiency and environmental concerns into account in day-to-day operation. By making small incremental changes (for instance, not automatically using full reverse thrust on landing, but simply using sufficient to achieve the required level of braking), it becomes apparent that the pilots' role is, unsurprisingly, critical, as up to 65% of the savings are a direct result of informed pilot decisions on the application of operating procedures. This approach to operating can be introduced both during type rating training and as part of recurrent training. The cumulative changes add up to big annual savings.


Pilot Training

Using the Embraer Phenom is an innovative solution and an indicator of the forward-looking view of the FAA, as expressed by Juha Siivonen, managing director, and is intent on combining the best of previous systems – excellent instructors, good selection processes, with training methods and equipment best suited to the demands of current and future airline flight operations. All the training is supported by a range of purpose-built CBT, parttask trainers and a new FNPT2. Siivonen declares that “Frasca, who have won all the separate tenders for the supply of the training devices, has been very easy to work with, and very responsive to all our needs, not just in designing those devices to match our requirements and to fit them within EASA rules, but with their unstinting in-service support.” In delivering this initial training the aim of the FAA is not simply to provide a new pilot with a licence. The very positively stated goal is to prepare pilots for a career, and that means fostering and training for eventual command. The success rate for FAA graduates who progress to command is 98%.

Scan Wings Although the role of government supported pilot training is predominant in Finland, there is also a totally private school, Scan Wings, which provides privately sponsored training. This organisation, based at Helsinki-Vantaa airport, is primarily established to provide executive business flight, which accounts for 50% of its capacity, with airfield approach aid calibration as an ancillary task. However the FTO embedded within it benefits from the expertise of the full time commercial pilots as instructors, who since 1997 have used the fleet of single-engine piston aircraft

and a King Air C90 to provide the “classic” ab-initio to ATPL training EASA training pattern. Because of the modular structure of the course it typically takes two years to complete that training. Anssi Viljanen, chairman of the Board points out that “although there is no guarantee of a placement once the training is complete, Scan Wings works to find jobs for its graduates, and has succeeded in placing 96% of its graduates. Once again a strict selection process is key to ensuring the best possible chance of success.”

Best Practice What is particularly striking is the recognition by the authorities in Finland that the skills demanded of an airline pilot put it on a par with other professions, and that home-grown pilots are a national requirement and asset. Therefore those starting on that career should be financially supported. If the fear of risking huge debt can be removed, the selection processes can then draw on the entire population rather than just those who can self sponsor. There is a model here which however initially painful financially to governments and airlines elsewhere, should be considered if the oncoming pilot shortage can be addressed by facilitating access to the industry for those who are talented but who simply cannot afford the full cost of training. It is a powerful lesson. cat

he overall theme of EATS 2012 is "Regulatory Change and Human Performance in Flight Training and Operations." April 2012 was a significant milestone for the European industry as EASA FCL and Ops became legally binding. European harmonisation has not been completed, however, and EATS 2012 will discuss what has been achieved and what further challenges remain. The conference, orgainsed by CAT magazine, will also focus on the industry’s current training challenges as it stares at the prospect of enormous growth and unrelenting technical change. With its accompanying exhibition, EATS provides a uniquely European perspective on civil aviation training, yet attracts conference delegates, speakers, and exhibitors from around the globe. Since inception, a hallmark of EATS is the quality of attendees – quite literally the majority of the senior personalities that drive this highly specialised sector. Personnel recruitment, selection, and F/O training issues will be centre stage at EATS 2012, including the actual expe-

rience with MPL. EASA and national regulators will provide all-important status updates, and IATA will discuss ITQI developments. Airbus will be present to look at new aircraft technologies such as those in the A350, and senior industry speakers will explore Evidence-Based Training, human factors, LOC-I, Threat and Error Management, and training for green operations. EATS has always been able to boast that it delivers viewpoints from the continent’s most informed industry players, including aircraft manufacturers, FTOs, TRTOs, air carriers, and regulators. This year will be no exception, and for the first time the conference will host a session that looks at the CRM and human performance issues of the cabin training community. Rounding out the conference will be a simulation technology update, with an

Need Experienced Aviation Personnel? CAE Parc Aviation are crew sourcing experts There’s been a lot of focus on the forecasted doubling of the worldwide aircraft fleet of the next 20 years and the predicted long-term shortage of pilots to fly the new planes and the technicians to maintain them.

to ferry them. Helping secure senior management for key positions. And engineering services or maintenance personnel to support airworthiness for leased aircraft.

Growing airlines today are also trying to address immediate needs for well-qualified professionals to expand domestic and international route structures, as well as incorporate new aircraft types.

CAE Parc Aviation’s team of expert professionals can help you manage all of these dynamic changes by identifying, screening and assisting you in selecting the personnel that best meet your unique crew requirements. Currently CAE Parc Aviation has more than 1,400 aviation personnel on assignment, including over 1,000 pilots, leased to more than 70 clients based in over 40 countries.

By now, most people in the airline training community are aware that CAE acquired Oxford Aviation Academy in May, and that we are integrating our global type-rating training centre networks as well as our ab initio flight schools (now CAE Oxford Aviation Academy). What may be somewhat overlooked is that CAE also acquired Parc Aviation, the world leader in aviation personnel services and solutions. Parc’s expertise is a key element to CAE’s complete end-to-end solutions, which now encompass: * Crew sourcing * Pilot type rating training * Ab initio cadet training * Maintenance technician training * Cabin crew training * Flight data services * A complete suite of simulation products * A global services and support network.

Perhaps you have a temporary surplus of flight crews, yet you don’t want to release excess staff because you may need them again in several months. In such situations, CAE Parc Aviation has developed a “give-take” arrangement whereby your surplus pilots can fly for an operator who has a short-term need for experienced crews. It’s a winwin-win for both operators as well as the pilots. One of the unique services CAE Parc Aviation provides is ferry flights for getting new or refurbished aircraft from Point A to Point B. This is not an operation an airline does every day, but CAE Parc Aviation does. For maintenance technical needs, where speed of response is essential, we can deploy experienced personnel on short notice while helping control your labour costs.

The essence of CAE Parc Aviation’s business is enabling airlines, leasing companies and MROs to address capacity demands by providing experienced, well-qualified flight crew, technical and executive personnel. It’s all about flexibility and tailored solutions. Provisioning pilots to meet growth and surge requirements or to introduce a new aircraft model to your fleet. Taking delivery of aircraft without pulling pilots off the line

CAE Parc Aviation has been sourcing personnel since 1975. Their worldwide reach, large pool of experienced candidates, and expertise in targeting your requirements mean more flexibility for your operations. - Jeff Roberts, CAE Group President Civil Simulation Products, Training and Services

Training in Asia – The Stella Aviation Academy in the Netherlands has been selected by the Jakarta Aviation Training Centre (JATC) to partner with their management and to supply type rating training on the Boeing 737 and the Airbus A320 for Indonesian airlines. The contract involves type rating training for experienced pilots who are trained on Boeing 737 Next Generation or the Airbus A320 for airlines like Garuda, CitiLink and LionAir, as well as the introduction of EASA training into Indonesia. SAFA Relocates – The Saudi Aviation Flight Academy has announced its’ relocation to the temporary office facility in downtown Riyadh to Thumamah Airport. The new office location will serve as a temporary base of operations until the permanent school is completed in mid2013. Captain William Roe, SAFA’s managing director stated that, “We are now posed to start training with our eight DA40 NG and DA42 NG aircraft. As the need increases and our permanent facility is completed, we will then take delivery of the remaining 12 aircraft and 10 flight training devices which are presently on order.” Growth in Asia – As the first non-Mongolian type rating training organisation, Cockpit4u Aviation Service has been approved by the Civil Aviation Authority of Mongolia (CAAM). With this new TRTO authorization in place, Cockpit4u can now deliver approved Type Rating Training and Train-the-Trainer programs, leading to the issue of a CAAM Type Rating and Type Rating Trainer approval. Cadet Training – Aerosim has signed

an agreement with Air Astana in Kazakhstan to provide the airline with ab-initio and jet transition training for future first officers. The training will begin with a screening process that includes a personality profile to help set the standard for delivering elite cadets back to the airline. The training will be FAA & EASA based and be completed in partnership with the Belgian Flight School. Apprenticeships – The creation of an apprenticeship scheme to train future commercial pilots has been welcomed by the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). The new Higher Apprenticeship, which will be developed by City & Guilds, will lead to a Commercial Pilot’s Licence. It is one of several new vocational schemes announced by UK Business Secretary, Vince Cable. The CAA said it had worked closely with City & Guilds, Sector Skills Council and industry, to support the work to develop the Commercial Pilot Higher Apprenticeship. The regulator said it will be monitoring the progress of the first group of apprentices and eagerly awaited the first qualified commercial pilot through the scheme. Developing Training Solutions – Boeing has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Indonesian Ministry of Transportation to jointly work to establish advanced aviation training programs and training practices in accordance with globally recognized standards. Boeing Flight Services and Indonesian officials will seek opportunities to develop flight, technician, dispatch and air traffic control training. The understanding focuses on the development of an advanced aviation training center and infrastructure includ-

ing the establishment of ab initio pilot training and commercial jet pilot type training programs in accordance with FAA and EASA regulations. Contract – ST Aerospace Academy (STAA) has been awarded a five-year pilot training contract by Tiger Airways commencing in 2Q 2012. STAA is expected to train more than 100 pilots for Tiger Airways. STAA will conduct ab initio and advanced pilot training programmes. The ab initio programme, will be delivered under either Multicrew Pilot Licence (MPL) or Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL) syllabi, followed by specific training on the A320 aircraft and eventual employment as A320 Type Rated First Officers. STAA will also undertake the marketing for, recruitment and assessment

of cadets on behalf of Tiger Airways and customisation of training content for the airlines operations. Type Rating – Four SuperJet International Training Organization (SJI) pilots – instructors and examiners – have achieved Type Rating Certification on the SSJ100 (RRJ95B) issued by EASA. They are the first western pilots to obtain the Type Rating to fly the SSJ100 aircraft. The Certification represents an important milestone for the SSJ100 program, because now SJI can extend the SSJ100 training to pilots licensed in those countries recognized by EASA rules. Cooperation Renewal – FSC and Air Astana have signed a three-year special exclusive agreement for training Air Astana’s Boeing and Airbus flight crew. Additionally, FSC shall provide training for Air Astana’s E-Jet fleet of aircraft. Long-Term Training – Swiss AviationTraining (SAT) and LOT Polish Airlines have signed an agreement committing both parties to a long-term training partnership. LOT pilots and cabin personnel will undergo all their Embraer E-Jet training with SAT from next year onwards. The agreement has been signed for an initial period of six years.

PILOT & MAINTENANCE TRAINING NEWS Pilot Demand Meet Pilot Supply

Producing top-quality, command ready pilots for airlines across the globe. Aerosim is positioned to deliver a better prepared pilot with the right aviation training solutions.

In today’s business of airline operations, the crux of the focus lies on three critical factors: safety, operational efficiency, and cost effectiveness. Whether it’s a legacy or a low-cost carrier, competition is stiff and executives at airlines are driven to be more efficient than ever to address the need of training top quality pilots and technicians that are always prepared and proficient.

At Aerosim, the belief is that airlines will be competing for top-quality pilots that have critical qualities needed for command authority such as character, discipline, responsibility and respect. Delivering a better prepared pilot requires innovation, technology and higher standards. Aerosim does this by shifting knowledge retention through technology earlier in the training continuum to provide better results along the way creating a prepared pilot and cost savings for the airlines.

As we continue to hear over and over again, the looming pilot shortage is a hot topic. The last decade has averted and delayed the pilot shortage due to various events such as a fuel crisis, global pandemics, change in retirement age and a global economic downturn. We have learned from these past events and have prepared ourselves for the future. Combine these events with emerging markets, booming population growth across the globe and a less than desirable outlook on the career as a whole – an impending shortage is imminent. Aviation training providers are poised to take on this challenge and deliver pilots to airlines. But, the real question becomes, are they the right pilots? A lack of quality pilots will put in jeopardy the three critical factors previously discussed. And, if the industry doesn’t come together to re-ignite the career of being a professional airline pilot, we will most definitely have a shortage on our hands. As a flight training solutions provider and the airlines as a transport, if the future of the industry does not have quality pilots, technicians, and engineers there will be no industry. Whether there is a pilot shortage or not, airlines cannot afford pilot washout during initial and/or first-time line experience training.

“A golden opportunity of fast career advancement and prestige has presented itself to tomorrow’s professional pilots and technicians. Aerosim’s vision is to reach out to today’s youth in order to supplement the industry with a mature and responsible pool of successful and well-prepared individuals.” --Erik Tobler, Commercial Director Latin America & Caribbean

Aerosim is working hard to address the issue of delivering a top-quality pilot, and “checking the box” is never an option. Since developing the world’s first Flight Management System trainer back in 1993, Aerosim has always been focused on two things: innovation and producing a product of higher quality and standards. Whether it’s true high-fidelity simulation or the ab-initio training curriculum and operations at Aerosim Flight Academy, delivering airlines the best possible pilot is the commitment of Aerosim.


In order to be positioned properly, Aerosim has established relationships with training partners worldwide. In 2012, Aerosim has partnered with the following organizations to deliver traditional and Multi-Crew Pilot License (MPL) training solutions:

Innovation through Technology

Currently, Aerosim is working to further develop mobile solutions for the aviation community and deliver innovative solutions for Courseware (CBT), Flight Management System Trainer (FMST) as well as Aerosim Checkride™ panel trainer apps, found at the App Store and soon to be found on the Android network. Maintenance Training Aerosim has set a new standard for maintenance training with classroom suites for Airbus A320 and Boeing 737NG. A critical objective for Aerosim is providing customers an innovative approach to aircraft maintenance efficiency while delivering cost savings. TAM Airlines and Aerosim recently published a case study on their approach to maintenance training, specifically addressing a way to improve training on aircraft systems logic, normal operating procedures and troubleshooting/fault isolation. Learn more at www.aerosim.com/TAM to read how this solution has changed their approach to maintenance training. In other related news, China Eastern Airlines (CEA) awarded Aerosim a contract to develop and deliver a Boeing 737NG Virtual Maintenance Trainer (VMT) classroom with an additional Virtual Procedures Trainer (VPT) with Maintenance for technician training. This classroom setup will help meet the rapidly increasing demand for technicians to service and repair the aircraft by providing high fidelity technical simulations for faults and troubleshooting. The features include a Virtual Flight Deck (VFD) with maintenance coupled with virtual aircraft to enable walk-around and access points, component identification, fault isolation and repair, and access to manipulation of Line Replaceable Units (LRU).

World Civil Full Flight Simulator Census Edited by Ian Strachan.

T

his year, 1318 full flight simulators are listed, an increase of 45 over 2011. This increase may be the first sign of a significant expansion of commercial air transport that has been predicted by many analysts, including research teams at Airbus and Boeing. The “Current Market Outlook” document by Boeing predicts a worldwide requirement for about 23,000 new commercial pilots per year between now and the year 2030, all of whom will need initial and recurrent training in full flight simulators. In the Simulator Census data for 2012, Table 1 shows the USA well in the lead with 561 full flight simulators, followed by the UK with 86. Looking at the right hand columns of US states, Texas and Florida have more FFS than any other country and several other states have more than many countries in the left hand columns. In the table, the People’s Republic of China is in third place with increased numbers over last year. The numbers for France have also increased, but Germany has five less than in 2011, and Japan six less, mainly due to retirements of old simulators. Italy has leapt up the table with 18 compared to eight last year. Other countries showing smaller increases include Brazil, Malaysia, Russia, Spain and Turkey. Included in the 37 countries that are not named individually, are Brunei, Bulgaria, Ethiopia, Iran, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Libya, Panama, Qatar and Serbia. So there is a wide geographical spread and the one prediction we can make with confidence is that numbers will increase but the geographical distribution will change, basically moving from North America and Europe to the Middle and Far East, with China showing major increases.

this up, “China is building 70 airports between 2011 and 2015, with another 97 airports to be built by 2020.”

Aircraft Types There are 502 simulators for Boeing aircraft, a slight fall, and 275 for Airbus aircraft, a rise of 25. This is followed by 119 for aircraft by Bombardier (-5), 84 for Cessna (+4), 72 for Hawker Beechcraft (+3), 50 for Embraer (+3), 39 for Gulfstream (+1) and 32 for Dassault (+2). Simulators for aircraft by ATR, AgustaWestland and Sikorsky have also increased, and there are 18 more for civil helicopter operations. The helicopter full flight simulators are for the more expensive twin engined designs such as the 15-seat AgustaWestland 139, 24-seat Eurocopter

225 (Super Puma) and the 30-seat Sikorsky S-76 (civil Sea King). Helicopter flying is considerably more hazardous than commercial fixed-wing, and the numbers of future helicopter FFS are expected to increase, particularly for these larger passenger-carrying types.

Regulatory Authorities & Approval Levels There are 996 Level D designs in the tables, 76% of the total and an increase of over 30. This followed last year’s increase of 60 Level D simulators, so the trend of “buying the best” continues. Although most training credits from regulatory authorities can be gained on Level C devices, airlines and training centres may be looking to the future where more training may be mandated for Level D with its higher fidelity. Training to recover from Loss of Control Inflight (LOC-I) and “upset” events are examples, particularly in light of the 2009 Colgan Air accident at Buffalo, New York, and the recent final report on Air France Flight 447 where the three pilots on board apparently failed to recognise


that the aircraft was stalled and descending into the sea from 38,000 ft. without taking positive action to reduce the angle of attack. As a result of these and other accidents, an International Committee for Aviation Training in Extended Envelopes (ICATEE) was formed. As we go to press, ICATEE is about to meet at EASA HQ in Cologne to finalise its report that will make training recommendations to ICAO, many of which are already being implemented because ICAO and regulators are participants. This will involve use of Level D simulators specially adjusted to model the outer parts of the flight envelope so that more realistic LOC-I situations can be experienced. This will include high angle of attack situations and the effects of centre-of-gravity variations (see UPRT article this issue). Amongst regulatory authorities, the US FAA leads with 577 certificated simulators (44% of the world total), followed by 377 for the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). This year, FAA certifications are down by 13 and EASA’s up by over 50 as National European Authorities transfer their simulators to the EASA list. Many EASA- and FAA-certified simulators are outside Europe and the USA, and a further 32 are certificated by both authorities. In other countries, CAAC in China deals with over 72, which includes the Hong Kong region of the PRC, an increase of 10 over last year. The regulatory authorities in Australia, Canada and Japan deal with about 30 each.

lead with nearly 580 simulators listed, an increase of 28. FlightSafety’s Simulation division at Tulsa has increased its count by 9 to 325. The Thales total has reduced by 9 to 282. Link civil simulator numbers are down (-3) compared to last year but Mechtronix is up by eight, Sim-Industries by seven, Transas by three with Opinicus and Rockwell Collins similar to last year.

Simulator Characteristics Three-window displays are most common with nearly 1150 examples, an increase of 46 over last year. 997 allow Cross-Cockpit viewing using a curved horizontal mirror. An innovation seen this year consists of some 4-channel systems where the fourth channel can be switched left or right depending on which pilot is flying. There are also 25 five-channel systems with a wider horizontal view including 16 on helicopter simulators with an extra two collimated monitors below the main mirror to give

a downward view through the aircraft’s “chin” windows. In image generator systems, CAE, Rockwell Collins and FSI virtually tie in top position, with CAE slightly in the lead with 368 systems in service, overtaking the ex-Evans and Sutherland systems of Rockwell Collins for the first time. In terms of motion platforms, most new simulators have electric jacks and there has been an increase of nearly 80 electric platforms since last year. Finally, there is a trend in helicopter simulators to fit vibration devices independent of the platform because using the latter to produce high frequency vibration cues is not good for platform life and continued serviceability.

Conclusion Despite financial pressures on airlines and training centres, the numbers of full flight simulators continue to increase, particularly of the most capable Level D devices. The need for better training for Loss-of-Control In flight (LOC-I) and “upset” events, will increase the need for high fidelity visual and motion cueing and more realistic flight models at the corners of the flight envelope. Other trends include electric motion platforms with lower transport delays, and higher resolution imagery displayed on wideangle displays with more economical projectors than in the past. The expansion of civil aviation, particularly in the Asia Pacific area, will further increase the need for simulator training, particularly at the end of the decade. The future of full flight simulation in the commercial air transport area is rosy. cat
