Overcome the Challenges of Traditional Pilot Training

Posted by Area9 on Jul 13, 2018 9:00:00 AM

Despite advancements in technology, traditional challenges in pilot training persist:

  • While plenty of e-learning options exist, finding better, faster e-learning that enhances classroom and simulator training is difficult
  • Training done in-class, in centralized locations, requires pilots to travel and take additional time away from their jobs
  • The regulatory structure of training and scheduling constraints limit access to many training resources in between training opportunities
  • There is a chronic shortage of qualified aviation instructors

Adaptive Learning can fix this.

How Adaptive Learning Can Improve Pilot Training

Unlike traditional training, Adaptive Learning is accessible on mobile technology — pilots won’t have to travel to centralized locations — and the personalized nature of the training ensures individual pilot needs are met.

By continually assessing and automatically adjusting to meet the unique needs of each pilot, Adaptive Learning generates a laser-focused, individualized experience, with which pilots interact at their own pace.

Plus, there is no need to change your current learning management system — Adaptive Learning works with your current system to enhance your aviation training impact.

In a traditional classroom, the pace of teaching is often dictated by average learners: those at the top of the learning spectrum are often left bored while those who are struggling can be left behind.


By teaching to the elusive average learner — a category that data shows is more myth than reality — your company is missing valuable opportunities to optimize employee potential and maximize business impact.

Adaptive Learning, on the other hand can:

  • Uncover unconscious incompetence — what pilots don’t know they don’t know — in order to target pilot blind spots
  • Train up to 50% faster than traditional training
  • Target pilots’ weak areas for better training outcomes while skipping material with which they are already proficient
  • Encourage learner mastery
  • Refresh or update prior learning with its Recharge function

Adaptive Learning adjusts to the needs of individual pilots while bringing them to mastery — and improves costly centralized training by preparing the pilot beforehand and saving the instructor time — maximizing costly face-to-face instructor time, making it more effective from a safety and compliance perspective, and better for your company’s bottom line.
