SIMAERO is glad to announce that its Online Learning Management System (“OLMS”) has been successfully approved by French DGAC (Direction Générale de l’Aviation Civile / French General Directorate for Civil Aviation), and thus by EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency).

SIMAERO’s OLMS provides a full range of theoretical courses such as type rating programs. It includes computer-based training for aircraft systems as well as typical ground course content normally presented in a classroom with an instructor, such as Mass and Balance, Limitations, Performances and normal and abnormal standard operations procedures. Special modules for Low visibility, Upset Recovery, Performance Based Navigation are available as well. 

This innovative concept in the pilot training industry was initiated in order to provide clients from all around the world with an efficient solution to continue pilots’ training during the global pandemic as well as to offer a modern and cost-effective tool to deliver theoretical instruction. 

“During global COVID pandemic and worldwide travel restrictions, the demand of such learning tool has become stronger than ever”, – says Patrice Galinier, Head of Training of SIMAERO. “The authority’s approval of our Online Learning Management System is a very important milestone of our objective to provide to our customers efficient, effective and modern training solutions”. 

The system allows pilots to conduct their theoretical training without traveling to a training center, and at a pace fitting their often complex schedule. They can contact the responsible instructor through distance communication any time if they have questions. 

The OLMS is very efficient way to assess the pilots for license revalidations, to do theoretical knowledge refresh training as well as to conduct tests of theoretical skills. 

The OLMS is also designed to house the Operator’s courses in one place, to organise these courses via distance, with automatic completion updates and reminders to managers and users, that ensures an efficient surveillance of training records of personnel. This solution is available for all the clients of SIMAERO. 

From July 2020 SIMAERO clients has begun to use the system and the feedback is very positive: quick and easy access to an intuitive online platform, which is adapted to all internet browsers and IOS and Android platforms of all devices such as computers, notebooks, ipad, tablet, smart telephones, allowing real-time monitoring of trainee progress and providing reduction of costs for companies and trainees, optimising the rotation of teaching personnel and allowing to save time and expenses of all concerned parties.
