Evidence Based Training

Evidence-Based Training (EBT) in aviation emphasises the use of scientific evidence and data to inform and shape pilot training practices.

The primary goal of EBT is to ensure that pilot training is grounded in real-world scenarios, risk analysis, and data-driven decision-making. By incorporating evidence from accident investigations, incident reports, human factors research, and operational data, EBT seeks to identify training needs and develop strategies that address the most critical skill areas and competencies required for safe and efficient flight operations.

EBT vs ATQP: What’s the difference?

Although EBT has revolutionised the way commercial airline pilots are trained, many still querstion the difference with Alternative Training & Qualification Programme (ATQP).

Here, we explain the distinct differences and advantages.

We don’t believe in one-size-fits-all technology

EBT: Evoke's innovative Training Management Suite supports airlines to embark on their EBT journey

As part of our ongoing series of customer workshops, we will be focusing on EBT to further understand our customers requirements when they embark on EBT implementation within their airline.

A new methodology of Pilot Training, Evidence Based Training, also known as EBT, was introduced by ICAO following an industry-wide consensus that a strategic review of flight crew training methods was required. Traditional training methods are based on air accident data from early generation jets, but a significant advancement in technology over the past 30 years has meant that modern aircraft are considerably more reliable, whilst an advancement of digital training records with accompanying data sources has also increased the availability of useful data for training exercises. The philosophy behind EBT is simple; by mastering a finite number of competencies, flight crew will be empowered to handle unforeseen situations that occur in flight, even if they have not received specific training for this scenario.

We have undertaken extensive research and consultation to develop and design our innovative solution to assist airlines looking to implement Evidence Based Training. Our Training Management Suite comprises a comprehensive suite of tools designed to support Training Managers in implementing this new training method within their airline in a simple and cost-effective way. 

Our Training Management Solution features tailored EFOS EBT forms to offer a seamless end user experience, with built-in data automation and validation capturing crucial information required for EBT programmes throughout the training process, whilst embedded robust analytical tools undertake the analysis required for instructor concordance and flight crew performance.

Before EFOS

Air Malta was struggling with a leave management process that was highly complex and labour intensive. Each leave request had to be processed manually, which meant pilots and cabin crew were forced to wait a long time to get confirmation of their leave.


After EFOS

EFOS Leave replicated the airline’s custom validation rules in the new digital platform. This made the transition smoother, as these rules were already accepted by both union representatives and crew members.


What they said

“The project was delivered very swiftly, enabling Air Malta’s team to quickly realise the benefits of the new software. The team at Evoke were committed and totally onboard for this project. The system was easy to understand, and help was always found along the project.”
