CAE is to harness Aircraft Performance Group's (APG) expertise in aircraft performance and runway analysis instruction for its business aviation training.

“The continuous training of aviation professionals is a key part of APG's strategy,” says APG president Shawn Mechelke. “Doing so with CAE's business aviation training shows our commitment to continuing to be the leading provider of runway analysis and flight operations solutions for aviation businesses worldwide.”

“The partnership with APG enhances CAE's business aviation training by giving our instructor pilots unique insight into runway analysis to help address industry-wide knowledge gaps,” says Alexandre Prevost, CAE division president, business aviation and helicopter training. “CAE is committed to pioneering training innovations, and through collaborations with partners like APG, we can harness our collective strengths to provide essential training that enhances safety skills.”

As part of this partnership, CAE instructor pilots will be trained on runway analysis and the intricacies of mastering the coordination between a SID (Standard Instrument Departure) and an EOP (Engine Out Procedure) to enhance flight safety and streamline operations. The course will also demystify landing factors, TALPA (Take off and Landing Performance Assessment), the Global Reporting Format, how to comply with dispatch landing factors and Landing Distance at Time of Arrival (LDTA) calculations.

The comprehensive training in runway analysis and obstacle clearance aligns with FAA notice N 8900.664, which underscores the importance of ensuring all crew members, regardless of previous authorisation, are properly trained in utilising contractor's data or other airport obstacle analysis programmes. In an ever-evolving aviation landscape, staying abreast of such guidelines and robust training programmes is paramount to maintaining the highest standards of safety and performance.
