Aeroteam and SA combine training solutions
Training may be their focus, but two Danish collaborators have differing and complementary specialities. Now they are merging their technical and operational courses under the umbrella of Aeroteam Training Solutions.

Aeroteam and Scandinavian Avionics (SA) have been providing training for the international aviation community both individually and in collaboration for the past ten years. Now they have set up a new joint company, Aeroteam Training Solutions, that becomes the twelfth division of the SA Group.

Aeroteam Training Solutions will offer complete turnkey training solutions for all aspects of the aviation community. Since both organisations have been offering training for their respective clients for many years, the new company has a solid foundation of experience and a huge portfolio of training courses aimed at both the operational and technical sides of the aviation business.

The cooperation started almost ten years ago, when Scandinavian Avionics hired Søren Agner, who owns Aeroteam, as training manager. SA CEO Michael R Truelsen explains: “Søren came on board to take responsibility as training manager within our Part 145 department and to help develop our Part 147 approval almost ten years ago. We soon discovered that the mindset of Søren and Aeroteam fitted very well with the philosophy of the SA Group, and our partnership has developed tremendously over the years.”

Scandinavian Avionics has been providing technical training, primarily aircraft type training, human factors, EWIS and fuel tank safety but also operator training post aircraft modifications, to educate technicians and even pilots in the use of the modified platform. Aeroteam's focus has been on the operational side, with a wide portfolio of different training courses for crew resource management, instructor teaching and facilitation training, flight operations training, security and dangerous goods as well as operational issues such as performance, flight planning and performance-based navigation. Aeroteam is also behind Mayday Training Tools, a series of interactive learning games. Scandinavian Avionics and Aeroteam have recently released a human factors version of the Mayday Training Tool that the companies say has already generated very good feedback.

Aeroteam Training Solutions managing director Agner says: “For Aeroteam it is all about the learning experience and improving the overall performance of companies through the education of their individuals. We focus on high quality classroom training and we want to make a difference. I have been working with Scandinavian Avionics for many years, and in the process of developing the Mayday Human Factors Training Tool we really started to see the synergies between our two companies. The SA Group provides turnkey solutions within the aviation industry, although it was a bit limited on the training side. With this new partnership the aim is to really provide a turnkey training solution, and we are very eager to see how the market will react to our new concept.”

Besides offering individual training courses for organisations within the aviation industry, for a fixed monthly fee Aeroteam Training Solutions will provide regulatory guidance and competence control for entire organisations, removing the burden of training administration and overheads while keeping all employees compliant. All solutions will be tailored to fit the requirements of the individual customer, in order to make sure the solution adds value at an affordable price level.

Agner continues: “We know that many companies struggle to remain compliant on their training requirements, and too many end up paying for bad solutions which are not adding real value to their employees and organisation. We want to remove the entire burden of training and turn it into something the employees look forward to. We have the tools to provide effective competence control, we have the expertise to provide high quality, interactive training and we have a huge commitment to make a difference within training and education of the aviation professionals.”

The SA Group provides complete complete avionics solutions for civil and military aircraft, helicopters and unmanned aerial vehicles. These include sales, avionics maintenance (MRO), certification (STC), design & engineering, installation, product development, production, training and consultancy services. The headquarters of The SA Group is Scandinavian Avionics, established in 1978 and located in Billund, Denmark, and there are 12 divisions located in Europe, the Middle East, South- and Southeast Asia.
