Flight training comes under AI scrutiny
Pilot evaluation and training is the focus of a new tool from FlightSafety that collects and analyses pilot performance data. The company is also offering EASA-qualified G500 training in Savannah.
David Davenport is adopting artificial intelligence for pilot training.

FlightSafety International has introduced FlightSmart, a new, fully integrated training tool developed in conjunction with advanced analytics and AI company IBM. FlightSmart is designed to increase training effectiveness and enhance safety through automated, intelligent and objective training.

“FlightSmart will set a new higher standard for personalised, highly-effective pilot training,” says president and CEO David Davenport. “This revolutionary new approach employs artificial intelligence and machine learning to evaluate a pilot’s ability while performing critical tasks and manoeuvres during all phases of flight. FlightSmart is then used to create a customised corrective action training path that addresses any identified deficiencies in order to increase proficiency and mastery.”

With FlightSmart, instructors will have a comprehensive understanding of a pilot’s strengths and weaknesses through access to real time data, which objectively measures performance against the highest standard parameters. They can then proactively address any deficiencies by optimising the training curriculum and focusing on areas that need improvement, as opposed to repetitive actions rooted in a fixed syllabus. This facilitates a departure from qualitative-based instruction toward evidence and competency-based training.

FSI says that FlightSmart provides a solid foundation for adaptive learning and student-specific insights and will be expanded in the future to include aircraft maintenance technicians, operators of unmanned systems and others.

The company is also now offering EASA-qualified initial and recurrent training for Gulfstream G500 aircraft operators at its Learning Center in Savannah, Georgia.

“We are committed to provide Gulfstream G500 operators around the world with comprehensive training programmes that meet their specific regulatory requirements,” said senior vice president, operations Dann Runik. “We worked closely with Gulfstream to ensure that our EASA-qualified G500 training programmes are of the highest quality and meet the needs of our customers.”
