FlightSafety International and GE Digital have launched a partnership to use actual flight data to reduce flight risks through superior training delivery.


The premier professional aviation training company and supplier of flight simulators, visual systems and displays to commercial, government and military organizations, FlightSafety will use data-driven C-FOQA (Corporate-Flight Operations Quality Assurance) insights from GE Digital to enhance training and ensure pilots are prepared for any possible threat, before these risks are real.



Flight data trends will influence focus on areas of concern


More than 300 operators and 1,000+ aircraft are part of the C-FOQA community, able to make use of automatic processing of flight data with a library of 200+ events and 2,000+ measurements that monitor everything from simple aircraft limitation exceedances to highly advanced risk-based modeling.


“Actual flight data will allow us to tailor training to address safety threats before crews even experience them,” said Brad Thress, President and CEO of FlightSafety International.


FlightSafety employs a risk-based approach to training and partnering with GE Digital for their C-FOQA data will have incredible applications for us on approach stability, touch down point control, procedure compliance and runway safety, among others.

Being proficient isn’t enough


“We aim to train the most prepared pilots in the industry – proficient simply isn’t enough, said Richard Meikle, FlightSafety’s Executive Vice President of Safety & Regulatory Compliance.

Our partnership with GE Digital will provide evidence of threats to flight operations through the GE Digital Aviation Software data to construct precisely targeted scenarios to enhance safety. That’s much more than just checking boxes to complete requirements. This is a huge differentiator.
