Dothan, AL, January 18, 2017 – The Fox Training Management System by Britannica Knowledge Systems will manage the training operations of the January 2017-completed 75,000 square foot U.S. Army and Air Force pilot training facility at Dothan Regional Airport in Alabama. The facility, located in close proximity to the U.S. Army’s Aviation Center of Excellence (USAACE) at Fort Rucker, will begin training pilots in March 2017.
Fox will oversee training, learning and qualification management for the facility’s many trainees, instructors, simulator bays, classrooms and briefing rooms, where CAE will deliver comprehensive initial and recurrent C-12 passenger and light cargo airplane training. More than 600 U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force fixed-wing pilots will train there annually under CAE’s U.S. Department of Defense contract.
With the goal of enhancing training effectiveness and maximizing resource utilization, Fox will administer complicated military scheduling and the facility’s costly simulators, the Grob aircraft and other devices. Fox’s qualification management tools will holistically manage pilot qualification training, enabling CAE to ensure that both instructors and trainees acquire and continuously maintain the requisite skills and certifications in order to perform their duties.
The facility will also use Fox’s complete Learning Management System (LMS) for courseware, delivery and management. Fox will provide CAE with a standardized evaluation process containing unique test-authoring, grading and briefing/debriefing tools, along with analytical dashboard views. These powerful capabilities will allow trainers and command to accurately and in real-time, analyze performance to close gaps, change focus and contend with exceptions.
“We are proud to be able to deliver the award-winning Fox to support the U.S. Army and Air Force’s demanding training operations,” said Miki Ringelhim, VP Business Development at Britannica Knowledge Systems. “We are dedicated to helping CAE achieve the utmost pilot proficiency and training operation efficiency.”
