Evidence-Based Training (EBT) / Advanced Qualification Program Meeting

In collaboration with ICAO

The EBT project arose from an industry-wide consensus that, in order to reduce the aircraft hull loss and fatal accident rates, a strategic review of recurrent and type-rating training for airline pilots was necessary. The aim of an EBT program is to identify, develop and evaluate the key competencies required by pilots to operate safely, effectively and efficiently in a commercial air transport environment, by managing the most relevant threats and errors, based on evidence collected in operations and training.

This meeting intends to clarify the rationale behind the EBT concept. It will give you an opportunity to hear the regulator’s and operator’s view on EBT. Through interactive sessions, we will cover the steps to the development of an EBT program; and its implementation and integration within the existing rules.
