Aviation Training the CBT way

By Mark Mansfield

We have all heard this saying; ‘A Pilots License is a license to learn’, so why not learn from one of the best in the industry and investing in your aviation career wisely?

Aviation Training is registered South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA) Aviation Training Organisation (ATO) and is 100% compliant with the SACAA and meets the standards recommended by EASA and has taken aviation training to new heights with its fully interactive Computer Based Training (CBT) solutions for the theoretical exams for PPL, CPL, IROP, and General Radio.

It is not a rehashed PowerPoint presentation that has been turned into an online 'ground school’ but is a fully interactive CBT course that has been developed over the past eight years. CBT allows each person to study at their own pace, it allows them to spend as much or as little time on each section, it is non-threatening and non-judgmental while providing immediate feedback as the training progresses. You can review sections of the material as frequently as needed, privately and without feeling embarrassed by mistakes. This makes the training much more efficient.

Gone are the days of death by PowerPoint, where they instructor tries to use every type of animation in every slide or worse chalk screeching on the blackboard.

There is now a system which delivers training and instruction with a computer instead of through a human instructor, and ours is delivered via the Internet so that text and multimedia materials can be accessed from any location at any time of the day. Alternatively, you can download our handy app, which allows you to access it via a tablet or phone offline. Our system works with Windows, Apple or Android.

For flight schools who globally have a shortage of instructors, it now means students can pre-prep themselves, thus cutting down on man hours spent on the ground which could rather be utilised in the air. Rather than classroom and book learning CBT is much easier to animate, which helps form proper 3D understanding of a concept

Due to the dynamic world we live in, and ever shifting world, the way we learn has changed. Join us today on a digital journey, ditch the old fashioned classroom and boring monochrome books. Allow us to take you on a vibrate colourful journey to navigate you through the minefield of your aviation exams, whilst getting your competitive juices flowing with our gamification elements seeing you fly to the top of the leader board.

Aviation Training has conducted ground schools and has been perfecting its notes, gaining a deep insight into the inner workings of the exam system. Now combining its theoretical knowledge, two decades of practical flight and industry experience with cutting edge computer science behind computer-based training. This has been a project in the making for over eight years, fine tuning and tweaking all the aspects to its theoretical knowledge training and has compiled fully interactive CBT courses.

Aviation Trainings’ head of training not only runs ground schools in South Africa but also writes manuals for Pooleys, lectures for ASG, Dublin, and Skyguide in Zurich.

Our CFI is a grade one instructor, with over 12,000 hours of flight time, has flown regionally in both Africa and Europe as well as long haul globally. Was also the head of ground school for an airline.

Our Africa Manger, Mark Mansfield has an extensive background in aviation and is very passionate about training.

Our instructors have a wealth of knowledge, and are Instructors, DFEs, TRIs, TKIs, Airline pilots and subject matter experts. All who bring years of aviation experience with them.

The flying is the easy bit, the theoretical is the tough bit, but we can help.
