AirAsia India and CAE have announced their collaboration to integrate the CAE Rise™ Training System into the airline’s simulator training program. AirAsia India is the first airline in India to adopt a data-driven training program using CAE Rise™.
CAE Rise™ leverages analytics to deliver a higher quality of training, providing real-time data during training sessions while giving instructors insights that enable them to objectively assess a pilot’s technical competencies and performance. As long-time collaborators, AirAsia and CAE have worked together since 2014 on pilot training at CAE network training centers.
“This collaboration uniquely incorporates CAE’s distinct features, which enable a more robust data-driven training program for our pilots,” said Capt. Manish Uppal, Head of Operations, AirAsia India. “At AirAsia India, we continue to be at the forefront of integrating technology and ensuring that safety is paramount in every aspect of our training and operations.”
“With Indian regulator DGCA aiming to make Evidence-Based Training (EBT) implementation mandatory, CAE Rise™ will be a key tool in collecting data to support a smooth EBT implementation and practice,'' said Capt. Arun Nair, Chief Pilot Training & Standard, AirAsia India.
“We are thrilled that AirAsia India will leverage the benefits of CAE Rise™ for their pilot training,” said Nick Leontidis, CAE's Group President, Civil Aviation. “With CAE Rise™, AirAsia India is investing in the development of their pilots and the safety of their passengers.”
Launched in 2018, the CAE Rise™ training system is a technological innovation that enables the translation of simulator training data into valuable insights for instructors and training managers. This new training system compares independent sources to provide increased confidence in grading data quality. In addition to monitoring SOP compliance, CAE Rise™ augments each instructor’s capability to identify pilot proficiency gaps and evolve training programs to the most advanced aviation safety standards including AQP, ATQP, and EBT methodologies.
