Stobart Selects Avsoft ATR Pilot Training Solution
Stobart Air, based in Dublin, Ireland, has awarded Avsoft International a long-term contract for its ATR 72-600 pilot training.
The ATR 72-600 eLearning course is currently in training and uses selected modules and tailored exams from the initial course. The course content is rotated every year and covers the complete technical refresher training over a period of 3 years. This arrangement satisfies EASA/IAA regulatory requirements for annual pilot recurrent technical training.
Stobart Air will use their third-party Learning Management System to deliver Avsoft’s SCORM 1.2 conformant ATR 72-600 course; the course content is streamed from Avsoft’s servers using its latest HTML5 based Courseware Player.
Capt. Michael Burke, Head of Training at Stobart Air commented, “We are pleased to extend our working relationship with Avsoft and update our training course to use the ATR 72-600 aircraft. We continuously invest in pilot training to ensure a constant flow of talent to future proof our business and meet industry demand. Training and upskilling our staff is a particular focus for us, and we look forward to strengthening our partnership with Avsoft to deliver the best possible staff training“.
