Training Solutions for Aviation Training Professionals

The 19th Asia Pacific Airline Training Symposium

29-30 August 2023 • Marina Bay Sands, Singapore


Do we need a new approach for a highly skilled and versatile future generation of aircraft technicians?

Harald Schween, a member of Lufthansa Technical Training's management team and Head of Sales & Marketing responsible for global customer affairs, will present on this topic at APATS 2023 in Singapore.

His presentation will explore how to approach the digital generation with modern training concepts. It will provide best practice examples of blended and collaborative learning methods, micro-learning, and the application of digital technology such as VR/AR and mixed reality in aircraft maintenance training.

Today's and upcoming generations are digitally connected and driven to improve themselves. Digital natives are accustomed to sharing knowledge and data on social media platforms and are familiar with virtual and augmented reality. Additionally, the availability of learning content at our fingertips has shifted the learning approach from "have to learn then" to a "want to know now" philosophy.

This new reality contrasts with traditional training methods that prioritized providing technical knowledge over developing competency and problem-solving skills. Teaching primarily followed a traditional "frontal teaching" approach, neglecting collaborative and interactive learning methods.

Harald argues that airlines and MROs must strike a balance between regulatory requirements and learning objectives while developing training concepts that resonate with younger generations. Developing modern, effective, and cost-efficient training programs has become more critical than ever before.
