"APC’s ATO review process is not just a theoretical exercise but a straightforward open discussion on precise targets, which lifts the overall standard of the organization to that expected in the airline world. The topics discussed included the training documentation and implementation as well as collaboration with APC in writing an APS MCC Workbook. This allows our students to take advantage of a state-of-the-art syllabus.
I can only recommend the expertise and the professionalism of Andy O’Shea, and the entire APC team, to ATOs willing to improve their training standards."
Stefano Buratti - Accountable Manager & Head of Training
APC will use SMEs to conduct an evaluation of an ATO across all aspects of their operation: management system, instructor training and standards, as well as theoretical and practical training perspectives. The APC ATO evaluation process will produce a report with clear recommendations, which the ATO will agree to address on an agreed timeframe.
The evaluation will be reviewed after one year and repeated every two years thereafter. This re-validation process will be risk-based and generally consist of two days’ desktop review and two days’ on-site observation.
