Asia Pacific Airline Training Symposium Chair, Captain Jacques Drappier, spoke with Dr Sunjoo Advani to get his insights on UPRT as part of the 2022 APATS Heads of Training series.

Dr. Advani is an aerospace engineer with 35 years’ of experience in flight simulation development. He runs the Dutch-based International Development of Technology, having previously been an assistant professor in the Aerospace Department at the Delft University of Technology.

He was clear: UPRT can and should be implemented now, with standardisation of training required globally.

The APATS Heads of Training workshop took place virtually this year, with some 50 heads of training from across the region discussing some key topics. As well as UPRT, the group also looked at Skills Decay, Big Data, EBT, XR VR and selection and ab initio training.

Capt Drappier has posted interviews with a number of subject experts on these other topics, be sure to catch the entire series.

We are looking forward to hosting the meetings in person at APATS 2023, live in Singapore from August 29-30.
