The Aviation Industry is governed throughout its corners by strict regulations in order to ensure the necessary level of safety in all its operations.
The human factor plays a significant role in ensuring an almost flawless environment, despite the complexity of aviation operations. For this reason, there are many training courses, initial and recurrent, which aim to train all personnel involved in Aviation and maintain them in a safe and productive knowledgeable level.


Compliance Monitoring

Compliance management is the management of all the various actions and precautions that an organization must take to ensure that it meets all the relevant legal requirements.

Contaminated Runways

A runway is considered contaminated whenever standing water, ice, snow, slush, frost in any form, heavy rubber, or other substances are present. This course includes the general definitions and limitations of all types of contamination, terminology to describe contamination to include dry, wet, and slippery, as well as A general discussion regarding the threats of operations on contaminated runways.

Cosmic Radiation

Cosmic Radiation is a form of ionizing radiation that comes from outer space. A very small amount of this radiation reaches the earth. At flight altitudes, passengers and crewmembers are exposed to higher levels of cosmic radiation. This course’s goal is to inform the trainees regarding the exposure to cosmic radiation that is higher than what is recommended, and thus may be at greater risk for possible health effects.

Crew resource management (CRM)

Crew Resource Management (CRM) is the application of human factors knowledge and skills to the conduct of flight operations with the objective of efficiently using all available resources (equipment, systems and people) to achieve safe flight operations. CRM combines individual skills and human factors knowledge with effective crew coordination. (source: http://aviationknowledge.wikidot.com/ )

Dangerous Goods

Some items may endanger the safety of an aircraft or persons on board it. The air transportation of these dangerous materials can either be forbidden or restricted.

ETOPS stands for Extended-range Twin-engine Operational Performance Standards, a rule which permits twin engine aircrafts to fly routes which, at some point, is more than 60 minutes flying time away from the nearest airport suitable for emergency landing.

Fatigue Risk Management

Fatigue Risk Management is a data-driven means of continuously monitoring and managing fatigue-related safety risks, based on scientific principles and knowledge as well as operational experience, which aim to ensure relevant personnel are performing at adequate levels of alertness.

First Aid

This course provides the trainees with all necessary skills and knowledge to be able to manage an onboard medical emergency situation in an effective way. The course also provides the tools so as to enable the trainees to understand the challenges of flying on the human body and the necessary corrective actions

Human Factors

The study of human factors is about understanding human behavior and performance. When applied to aviation operations, human factors knowledge is used to optimize the fit between people and the systems in which they work in order to improve safety and performance. Gain a comprehensive overview of the effect and management of human factors in aviation with this foundation course. (source: www.iata.org)

Low Visibility Operations

Low visibility procedures (LVP) means procedures applied at an airport or airfiled in order to ensure
safe operations during lower than standard category I, other than standard category II, category II and III
approaches and low visibility take-offs. The pilots are supposed to know the landing capability of their aircraft, their own qualifications, the requirements, minima, and all other procedures and rules involved. 

Performance Based Navigation

Performance-Based Navigation, or PBN, is navigation that uses global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) and computerized on-board systems. This is in contrast with traditional sensor-specific navigation based largely on fixed ground-based beacons guiding aircraft along published routes via waypoints defined by these beacons.

Reduced Vertical Separation Minimum (RVSM)

Reduced Vertical Separation Minimums or RVSM, is intended to reduce the current 2000 feet of vertical separation between aircraft to 1000 feet at the fuel-efficient altitudes between FL 290 and FL 410.The specific course describes the operation, limitations and requirements for flight in RVSM airspace.

Safety Management Systems (SMS)

A Safety Management System (SMS) is a systematic approach to managing safety, including the necessary organizational structures, accountabilities, policies and procedures. As per ICAO requirements, service providers are responsible for establishing an SMS, which is accepted and overseen by their State. (source: www.iata.org)
