Universal Avionics has expanded its training offerings with the launch of UA Academy, an online learning center with on-demand courses for customers and authorized dealers/integrators. Courses currently available include SBAS flight management system (FMS) operations, VNAV basics, InSight display system operations for fixed-wing aircraft, FMS end-user maintenance, FMS return to service, and datalink fundamentals.
“As a company that provides innovative solutions, we recognize the importance of providing state-of-the-art training. Now, more than ever, with Covid-19 we are seeing an increased need for online learning,” said Universal Avionics CEO Dror Yahav. “We’ve worked to develop additional technology-based training devices to further support self and remote training, which will complement UA Academy.”
The company’s online courses apply tested adult learning theory and are built on a purpose-driven training platform designed for customer training. Interactive practices are mixed with short instructional videos. Students also have the option to accelerate their learning by pairing the online course with desktop training software and devices, as well as scenario-based instructor-led classroom training, Universal Avionics said.
