The Challenge

One of the biggest challenges for aviation companies is keeping pilots, ground crew, maintenance personnel, agents, and attendants up-to-date on a myriad of FAA rules and regulations. A top priority is reducing costly human error and adverse incidents. Lives are at stake.

Aviation companies have developed some of the best training programs in the world, with the goal of enhancing quality and compliance while reducing operational risks. But training takes time and budget away from the main job. How can you guarantee a return on training investment?

The Solution

One of the best ways to reduce risk is to eliminate the Confidently Held Misinformation (CHM) that exists in the minds of crew members, ground personnel, agents, and support staff. CHM exists at alarming rates in every industry. It leads to poor decisions, human error, and adverse incidents. The problem is compounded when supervisors and instructors pass CHM along to subordinates and new hires during training.

84% time reduction for mandated FAA training

Amplifire’s personalized algorithms adapt training to each individual so that employees focus only on their own particular knowledge gaps, misinformation, and uncertainty. This saves time (and money) as demonstrated in the graphic to the right.

This data is for the total time spent in mandated FAA training for one year.

  • Amplifire reduced training time from 31 hours to 5 hours
  • Pilots, ground crew, and other employees spent 84% less time training in Amplifire than in the previous legacy system while learning all of the same information

1,015% ROI from reduced training time

Organizations succeed when their investments pay off. For this aviation firm, margins are thin, yet FAA-mandated training is critical to keep employees and customers safe. Training is necessary, but it takes away from other profitable activity.

As seen in the graphic to the left, Amplifire reduced the annual cost of training by $780 per learner for 11,389 employees and returned over $9 million in savings.

This return reflects savings from reduced training time—it does not include savings from reduced incidents, reduction in costs of Computer Training System (CTS) training, or repurposing newly-available training hours for revenue-producing activities.

Improved outcomes are the purpose of training. For this firm, Amplifire training significantly reduced adverse incidents related to human error. Complete the form below to download the full study and see the implications.
