The 21st Europe Airline Training Symposium
8-9 November 2023 • Estoril Congress Centre, Cascais, Portugal
Back in 2013, ICAO introduced the concept of EBT as a game-changer in pilot training.
It was envisioned to shift training from traditional compliance-based methods to a competency and data-driven approach. The ultimate goal was to enhance pilot training by analysing data, identifying vulnerabilities, and tailoring training to address specific airline issues.
But where are we a decade on?
Michael Varney, CEO of Salient, is regarded as a global specialist in EBT and will be on hand to answer that question and many more during his presentation at EATS 2023, Live in Cascais.
