CAE has tapped The LOSA Collaborative to perform line operations safety audits (LOSA) of CAE customer-operators in an effort to enhance the former’s evidence-based training offerings. Data gleaned from the LOSA audits will allow CAE to offer tailored pilot training programs and benchmarked operational and training performance insights to operators.

“This partnership brings safety auditing expertise to our customers and will also reinforce our CAE Rise Training System,” said Nick Leontidis, CAE’s group president for civil aviation training solutions. “Collecting data and insights from line operations and training is key to the development and assessment of pilot competencies.”

Leontidis said this brings pilot training full circle by closing the loop between operations and training data. “This enables us to further build a robust data-driven training ecosystem that will support continuous improvement, provide a true measure of the effectiveness of training, and have a positive impact on aviation safety worldwide,” he added.

The LOSA Collaborative, which is dedicated to the continuous improvement of global aviation safety, also provides threat and error management education, implementation, and benchmarking. “With our partnership with CAE, we are formally bridging the gap between proactive safety data and training solutions,” said The LOSA Collaborative founder and CEO James Klinect.
