Pacific Sky Aviation (Pacific Sky), the British Columbia-based flight school, has implemented the Fox Training Management System by Britannica Knowledge Systems in the record-breaking time of three weeks.
“The Pacific Sky team provided us with very positive feedback on Fox’s simple self-implementation process,” said Asher Dagan, vice-president, Product and Marketing, Britannica Knowledge Systems. “I credit this success to Pacific Sky’s motivation, coupled with Britannica’s new ready-made onboarding tools.”
Fox’s new self-implementation tools are a component of its recently launched “Fox-for-All” approach. Developed from knowledge gained serving large aviation customers including United Airlines, American Airlines, Boeing, ANA, British Airways and LATAM, the approach combines proven industry-specialized solutions, easy self-onboarding and management tools (for data migration and integration), scalable pricing, cost-efficient shared cloud services and tiered support packages.
In just the first quarter of 2019, the approach has drawn various-sized organizations to adopt Fox, including Singapore Flight School and Pobeda Airlines in Russia.
In less than a month after kick-off, Fox is fully implemented at Pacific Sky’s flight training centre in Calgary, Alta., for its Twin Otter and CL Water Bomber programs. As one comprehensive system, Fox manages all operational training requirements including resource allocation, scheduling, pilot training records, qualifications and learning.
Fox’s analytics and automated processes help Pacific Sky improve training development, learning and testing, and performance evaluation. Push alerts and notifications keep Pacific Sky’s Fox users updated with task and schedule changes. Its instructors and evaluators are now capturing real-time performance data online and offline on mobile devices using the Fox Grading app to eliminate paper, improve accuracy, ensure training quality and maintain standards.
