Digital learning offers opportunities to improve cabin crew competencies, including knowledge and skills. It can offer simulated training environments unavailable in a traditional classroom environment. The goal of digital learning is to enhance safety, through well trained and competent aviation professionals.
Digital learning is not meant to replace classroom training, hands-on exercises or traditional simulated exercises in their entirety. Based on the technological methods used, digital learning can recreate a realistic environment that best simulates real line operations. This level of realism in training reinforces the development and application of cabin crew competencies alternatively trained in a classroom setting or through hands-on exercises.
These guidelines focus on formal learning, specifically on structured courses designed to meet job-related learning objectives for cabin crew. An effectively implemented digital learning programme complements the dynamic aviation training environment by providing positive learning and training enhancements.
