Advanced Aircrew Academy Joins USAIG’s Performance Vector Safety Initiative
  • October 22, 2019

Charleston, SC October 22, 2019—USAIG, one of the world's leading aviation-specific insurance providers, proudly welcomes Advanced Aircrew Academy (AAA) to its Performance Vector safety initiative. Performance Vector enables eligible policyholders to select annually from a diverse portfolio of training and safety-enhancing services delivered by world-class providers. A Training Program Support Package from AAA has been added to the list of options accessible through Performance Vector.

For policyholders that select this option, AAA will do an in-depth review of current training practices, integrating specifics of the policyholder's operation, applicable regulatory and certification requirements, safety data the operator has collected, and industry best practices. AAA will deliver a report from this process back to the operator to inform and guide strategic refinement to the overall training plan. The operator can then select four eLearning modules that can be delivered all at once or as four quarterly training focus areas. For example, an operator might select a winter operations review for the fall, runway excursion prevention training during icy runway winter months, warm weather hazards in the spring, and security training in the summer. Additional training modules or capacity beyond what is provided with the package can be obtained at discounted USAIG member rates.

"Turbine aircraft operators require regular and updated training," said AAA CEO and founding partner Dan Boedigheimer. AAA sets itself apart from the competition by offering up-to-the-minute informational developments and demands. "Most companies' training modules are updated annually or even less often. AAA's subject matter experts are updating the training every week, which presents a significant benefit to turbine aircraft operators."

Advanced Aircrew Academy enables business aviation operators to fulfill their training needs in the most efficient and affordable way—in any location at any time—with high quality professional pilot, flight attendant, scheduler/dispatcher, and maintenance eLearning modules delivered via the web. A comprehensive catalog of more than 60 General Operating Subject training modules supports business aviation operators by satisfying Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO), and Business Aviation Safety Consortium (BASC) training requirements.

"Advanced Aircrew Academy is a natural and great fit within our Performance Vector Program," said USAIG President and CEO John Brogan. "A comprehensive and professional review of a flight operation's training needs and practices is a strategically minded step with huge upside for strengthening operational safety and culture. It's the kind of enhancement to ongoing safety initiatives that our policyholders have found especially valuable in the Performance Vector program, and we're delighted Advanced Aircrew Academy's expert services are now accessible as an option there."

USAIG continually upgrades its popular Performance Vector suite of safety programs to keep pace with changes and improvements in aviation safety protocols. For additional information about the program, check the Safety tab at or contact Paul S. Ratté, USAIG Director of Aviation Safety Programs at
