Aviation Data Trainer Version 2 now offers the user more benefits than ever before. As well as including the core data sets that any aviation professional should be aware of, the new application allows the user to configure the tool to their specific region by downloading additional data sets for airports, airlines and aircraft types. Check out the ‘About’ section of the application to discover more applications and games to help train air traffic controllers on core skills of phraseology, airspace, cognitive skills and working in a team.
The Aviation Data Trainer provides Air Traffic Controllers, Pilots, Airport Staff, as well as aviation enthusiasts a tool to review, learn and test themselves on the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and the International Air Transportation Association (IATA) data sets that are the core of air operations around the World.
The Aviation Data Trainer provides three levels of support to assist you in learning, understanding and testing yourself to show how you can memorize these codes for day to day operations. First, the application allows you to view all the data that you will need to learn. Second, you can view that data in a series of configurable flash cards that allow you to step through the complete data set at your own pace. Third, a series of configurable tests dependent on the data set chosen are available to measure your progress.
There are also a couple of games available for each data set. The first game is a simple bubble game that draws on your memory to match simple sets, the more you get right, the quicker you clear the bubbles, but get a set wrong and more bubbles appear! A second game for each data set is a memory drop game that requires moving descending balls into the appropriate bin in a timely manner. In the easiest level the balls are color coded but as you advance in the game the colors go away so it gets a little harder!
This ingenious application will have you well on the way to memorizing the core data needed to be a successful operator in the aviation community.
