The Indian Institute of Aeronautics (IIA) Group
has entered into an agreement with Airbus to use ‘Airbus
Competence Training (ACT) for Academy’ in its curriculum.
The ‘ACT for Academy’ training software has been
designed to familiarise students with the latest Airbus aircraft
technology and maintenance procedures, in a classroom environment.
Through this maintenance training solution, Airbus
aims to prepare and equip young aerospace aspirants for
their career challenges and to create a skilled workforce in
consonance with the Indian government’s ‘Skill India’ initiative.
The training is an operationally oriented,
scenario-based tool focused on a ‘learning by doing’ approach that includes:
- 3D virtual Airbus aircraft, including virtual
cockpit, virtual engines and a walk-around trainer;
- Scenario driven exercises to perform typical
aircraft systems’ maintenance tasks; and
- General familiarisation on Airbus aircraft
courseware to present and explain the aircraft and its systems.
“It gives us immense pleasure to be the launch
customer for the establishment of ‘Airbus ACT for Academy’ at
IIA’s New Delhi campus. This training solution will support the
curriculum of DGCA & EASA Part 147 for approved Maintenance
Training Organisations and staff. It will not only corroborate a
remarkable feat in the basic training standards but in parallel
boost the employability skills of our students by upscaling their
knowledge and skill levels as desired by the aviation industry,”
said Rahul Ranjan Singh, Vice President, IIAG.
