ANA to become first airline outside U.S. to use FAA’s AQP

All Nippon Airways (ANA) will become the first airline outside the U.S. to implement the FAA’s Advanced Qualification Program (AQP) using the Fox Training Management System (Fox) from Britannica Knowledge Systems.

The Japanese carrier is now in the process of adopting Fox to oversee AQP qualification management and compliance under the supervision of the Japan Civil Aviation Bureau (JCAB).

Through Fox, ANA will have the tools for accurate AQP curriculum development and delivery based on trainee qualification status, role and numerous other attributes with critical insights for proficiency and safety improvement.

Fox will manage the carrier’s AQP performance-based scheduling requirements to ensure efficient and effective training planning and execution by integrating with relevant flight training systems at ANA.

The goal of the Advanced Qualification Program is to achieve the highest possible standards of individual and crew aviation training through proficiency-based methodologies.

Fox will also act as ANA’s holistic training management system, managing pilot qualifications, grading (online and offline on iPads), scheduling and recordkeeping.

Britannica Knowledge Systems recently achieved ISO 9001:2015 certification.
