Flight Operations Specialist
Our training specialised in those roles within the Operations department of an Airline. We are pleased to offer apprenticeships which can support both Operations and a HOTAC role.
By the summer of 2020, we hope to be in a position to offer apprenticeships for a Crew Scheduling and Crew Training role. If you would like to be kept update with the progress of this please contact us.
A Flight Operations Officer is employed to provide supervision of flight and to act as a close link between aircraft in flight and the ground services, and also between the aircrew and the operators on the ground.
A Hotel and Travel Officer is employed to ensure resources, such as hotels, commercial flights, transfers, and taxies are booked for the Flight and Cabin Crew in accordance with regulations and internal procedures.
Both duties play a significant role in the safe operation of an aircraft, movement and wellbeing of the crew, and as a result, international regulations require that they be appropriately trained.
According to ORO.GEN.110 and Annex IV (Part-CAT), and associated AMC such as SPA.DG.105 and ORO.SEC
The operator shall employ sufficient personnel for the planned ground and flight operations;
- All personnel assigned to, or directly involved in, ground and flight operations shall:
- Be properly trained;
- Demonstrate their capabilities in the performance of their assigned duties; and
- Be aware of their responsibilities and the relationship of their duties to the operation as a whole.
The Aviation Operations Apprenticeship provides a unique opportunity to develop an individual’s understanding of the complexities of operations control, a minimum of a 12-month program ensures the apprentices have the desired knowledge, skills and behaviours to be an efficient, effective and reliable member of the operations team, whilst ensuring they have been appropriately trained.
The Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education provides the standard of accomplishment. Crosby Aviation Training has ensured this aligns with IATA and EASA legislation, as well as following the principles laid out in ICAO D-3 Flight Operations Officer Training Manual.
Your training is delivered by previous Flight Operations Managers, whose experience varies from GA and Military through to large employers. These experienced trainers enable the content to come to life with relatable scenarios. The training provided is supported by the UK Operations Managers Association.
Apprentices will be able to apply for student membership to the Royal Aeronautical Society.
Many elements of the course can be tailored to your needs; they are designed in a way to challenge your personnel to continuously strive for a higher level of safety, performance and efficiency.
