EFOS ‘EBT in a Box’

EBT Programme Elements

Our EBT Solution has been developed to include the following elements:

Identification of Training Needs

Clever validation within EFOS forms allows for the pinpointing of individual training needs for flight crew

Assessment & Grading System

The built-in VENN Grading System is an objective method of recognised assessment, providing consistent grading of pilot performance

Competency Framework

The framework as published in ICAO Document 9995 and supported by EASA in NPA 2018-07 (B) has been adopted within the EFOS system

Competency Mapping

Existing scenarios and competency mapping recommended by ICAO are built-in to the system. New scenarios can be added with identified appropriate competency mapping

Malfunction Clustering

Major malfunctions are classified by characteristic rather than by the system malfunction. These characteristics are designed to be covered with the appropriate frequency within the EFOS system

Approach Clustering

Different types of conduct of approach with similar methodologies are clustered together to reduce the number of different approach types flight crew have to perform

Programme Design

The built-in Programme Designer allows Training Managers to accurately and easily build their 3-year EBT programme

Instructor Concordance

Robust analytical tools perform the necessary analysis supporting instructor concordance assurance programmes

Data Analysis

Intelligent built-in validation allows for the collection of critical data to compile crucial EBT analytical reports

The EFOS EBT In a Box Solution

We have undertaken extensive research and consultation to design and develop an innovative solution to help airlines looking to implement EBT. Our suite of tools are designed to help operators develop and plan a compliant EBT programme. 

Explore the different modules of our solution below:

The EBT Programme Designer allows Training Managers to accurately and easily build their full 3-year EBT Programme to obtain regulatory approval.

EASA’s Table of Assessment and Training Topics are built-in to the Programme Designer, and are broken down by generation. During the set up phase, operators can select the relevant aircraft generation for the type or types they operate. The list of Assessment and Training Topics are broken down by phase and frequency, and are mapped to the competencies which will fulfil the training requirements. Upset Prevention Training will also be included within this table.

Malfunction Clustering scenarios and characteristics will also be managed within the Programme Designer.

Embedded frequency validity rules and built-in competency balancing indicators ensure it meets both regulatory and operating requirements.

Operator customisation will allow Training Managers to edit and modify the Programme Designer to add new scenarios and associated competencies as their EBT Programme develops.

Competency Mapping will provide Training Managers with an overview of the competency spread across their programme, ensuring a balanced spread across the modules and the programme as a whole. 

The suite of tailored EFOS EBT forms includes built-in competencies and grading solutions, with EBT topic and scenario validation and data process automation undertaken throughout the form capture. This is delivered via the existing functionality of the EFOS Training Management Suite.

Through intelligent form functionality, individual training needs can be highlighted, with specific scenarios recommended to focus on these areas for flight crew candidates. 

During mixed implementation these forms will also capture the LPC and OPC. 

Our proprietary iPad application allows the trainer to review past performance, but also easily record competencies observed during training. 

The forms have been designed for the three phases of EBT; The Evaluation Phase, The Manoeuvres Validation Phase and the Scenario Based Training Phase. 

You can explore our EBT Forms here.

A robust set of analytical tools embedded within EFOS will perform the necessary analysis required to support instructor concordance and analyse flight crew performance. Clever validation within EFOS ensures clean data is captured, allowing for powerful data analysis opportunities. 

Drill down options allow for comprehensive analysis of data. Reports can be exported in a number of formats for distribution within airlines and inclusion within regulatory reports. 

Together with the instructor concordance data and crew feedback, standard analytical reports will be created for use at Training Standards meetings at which Training Managers and SME’s can review and analyse the effectiveness of the EBT programme. 

Critically during the Mixed Implementation phase, reports will also be available to compare awarded competency grades against Appendix 9 item pass rates to verify the accuracy of the Grading System of the EBT Programme.
