Airline Training Profile: Singapore Airlines – CAT profiles national flag carrier Singapore Airlines, one of the world’s most respected airlines and noted for both its safety record and cabin service standards. With its hub at Singapore Changi Airport, the carrier was ranked as the world’s best airline in 2018, including the category “Best Airline in Asia”. The profile begins with a visit to the Singapore Airlines Training Centre, which serves as the focal point for flight and cabin crew training.

Cyber Threats to Commercial Aviation – This feature article explores the nature of the current cyber threat to commercial aviation training and operations, and separates the myth from the reality. While there is much discussion in the public media about hacking into aircraft systems with the aim of unauthorized control, the cyber threat to commercial aviation is much wider than this specific example and the mitigations quite sophisticated. Views from industry players are central to this all-encompassing discussion.

ATC Training and Simulation – Simulated ATC for the full flight simulator is a promise that has become reality, with regulatory guidance in place and the technology now proven. CAT explores the history of the overall initiative, the nature of the technology and the value of the training. The feature also includes inputs from the major suppliers involved, and profiles the first air carrier flight simulator implementations. 

Professional Competencies in Ab-Initio Training  – A look at the research work conducted by Boeing to help assess professional competencies in ab-initio training, including the initial conclusions. The research was presented at APATS 2017 and this feature summarizes the program and provides an update.

European Regulatory Update – In the run up to CAT’s European Airline Training Symposium (EATS) to take place in Madrid in November, we summarise recent training developments at the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), as well as the activities of the highly successful Aircrew Training Policy Group (ATPG), which has the goal of enhancing communications with all sectors of the aircrew training industry.

Women in Aviation – CAT continues its Women in Aviation Series, this time with the inspirational career story of a South American female professional pilot.
