AirAsia India and CAE are collaborating to integrate the CAE Rise Training System into the airline’s simulator training program. AirAsia India is the first airline in India to adopt a data-driven training program using CAE Rise.

CAE Rise leverages analytics to deliver high-quality training, providing real-time data during training sessions while giving instructors insights that enable them to objectively assess a pilot’s technical competencies and performance. As long-time collaborators, AirAsia and CAE have worked together since 2014 on pilot training at CAE network training centers.

“With Indian regulator DGCA aiming to make Evidence-Based Training (EBT) implementation mandatory, CAE Rise will be a key tool in collecting data to support a smooth EBT implementation and practice,'' said Capt. Arun Nair, Chief Pilot Training & Standard, AirAsia India.  

Launched in 2018, the CAE Rise training system enables the translation of simulator training data into valuable insights for instructors and training managers. This new training system compares independent sources to provide increased confidence in grading data quality. In addition to monitoring SOP compliance, CAE Rise augments each instructor’s capability to identify pilot proficiency gaps and evolve training programs to advanced aviation safety standards including AQP, ATQP, and EBT methodologies.
