With pilots sent home due to COVID-19, Scandinavian charter airline SunClass has found a way to maintain air crew proficiency using Aviation eLearning’s V360E. The customisable virtual train and track software solves the urgent training need and minimises the amount of training required once full operation resumes.

“The Virtual 360 Cockpit fits perfectly with what we need, and it’s easy to use. Our pilots can train from home on their iPads,” said Nicolai Bondo Rasmussen, SunClass Airlines NP Crew training. “We value the fact that with V360E we can customise the content and create training procedures according to our standard. Best of all, we can track our pilots’ progress online. We will initially start with Memory Items on both the Airbus 321 and A330, but will expand to normal procedures, if needed.”

SunClass is a charter airline flying with Airbus 321 and A330, with services from Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland. As governments in the region advised against travel to contain the outbreak, the airline has suspended its operation but will continue pilot training using V360E.

Recently, Aviation eLearning offered a 6-month free trial of V360E for airlines and air operators in response to the authorities’ increasing concern on crew proficiency during this COVID-19 outbreak.
