"I work in the training department of a small 135 management company. We have aircraft based at several different airports, some of them across oceans, and we have always struggled with the logistics of bringing our pilots back for recurrent training. Almost all of the time, it involves airlines, hotels, and rental cars, which can be a very large expense. Since we started using Aircrew Academy, however, we have saved a significant amount of money on both our initial and recurrent indoctrination training; we have dramatically reduced the class time on our initials, and our recurrents are done entirely online.
"On top of the cost savings, all of our instructors are also active pilots, so time can be an issue. By using Aircrew Academy, we have created a tremendous amount of free time for our instructors, which significantly reduces some of the scheduling difficulties we've had in the past. We would consistently have problems with instructors needing to switch out during a course because they were required for a trip, which could be expensive as well.
"The entire team at Aircrew Academy is extremely helpful and a pleasure to work with. I never submitted a single request that they couldn't accommodate, and they always did so with a very positive manner. For any operator that is considering switching a portion of their training to an online environment, I can easily recommend Aircrew Academy." -Ed Jackson, Director of Training – Aviation Concepts
