Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University
In 2020, Florida-based Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University adopted GE Digital’s Safety Insight® for its aviation safety education courses and programs on all its campuses and in its operations to improve efficiency for flight and fleet maintenance in the university’s flight departments.
The software includes Flight Operations Quality Assurance (FOQA) technology to enhance flight safety operations on Embry-Riddle’s flight line, plus create dynamic learning experiences with its data analytics curriculum.
“The use of Safety Insight’s Flight Operations Quality Assurance [FOQA] technology, the gold standard of flight data monitoring, ensures Embry-Riddle students are highly competitive for safety and risk-management roles at every major airline in the world,” said Dr. Alan Stolzer, Dean of the College of Aviation.
FOQA software gives us a huge competitive advantage over other flight and educational programs.
