Horizon is your competent partner
Horizon offers operator-specific initial and recurrent training in accordance with EU-OPS requirements. A modern infrastructure with up-to-date equipment provides a comfortable and effective training environment. Classroom and distance learning courses are being offered to optimize the operator’s training needs.
Operators now have the opportunity to fully delegate flight and cabin crew training in order to minimize administrative efforts and without the obligation to schedule own personnel.
Course content may be tailored to fully meet the operator’s needs and to fulfil all legal requirements.
Teaching and Learning
Successful trainings depend heavily on the abilities of your trainers and instructors. Our Teaching and Learning Course follows the structure of EASA Part-FCL. Your future instructors learn how to achieve oustanding results among their students by adopting state-of-the-art teaching methods.
Crew Resource Management - CRM
Besides the regulatory requirements, Horizon chooses, in close cooperation with the specific operator, issues which are of interest and concern. Our experienced CRM facilitators can draw from operational experience and the relaxed course atmosphere away from daily routine creates an optimum learning environment.
Emergency and Safety Equipment Training - ESET
The yearly training requirements are fulfilled by covering topics such as fire fighting, equipment training and first aid medical, with emphasis on practical training. Modern training tools and a cabin mock-up, where required, are used to effectively simulate training needs. Instructional personnel consists of active and former flight and cabin crew members, as well as experts in the field of medicine.
Flight Crew Selection
The selection and testing of future flight crew members belongs to a difficult but important process in aviation. The Horizon selection process applies operator-specific requirements, combined with updated knowledge of screening candidates. The four different modules listed below will allow a solid evaluation of a future flight crew member.
Many training elements may be offered online via internet by means of our e-learning platforms. Crews are in a position to access testing worldwide on an individual basis, without re-location or loss of working hours. All results are readily available to the operator and may be integrated in a quality assurance system.
