What the Course is About

The Air Operations world may seem like a daunting place to work in.  Whether you are someone considering a career in aviation, you have just started a clerical position at an air operator, you are a young graduate or an established professional looking to better understand how air operators work, this micro course has you covered. 

Aviation is constantly changing.  The three dimensions within aviation – technology, economy and politics – influence each other constantly.  These are further influenced by external change factors such as the coronavirus pandemic, or climate change.  But despite flight operations is at the centre of these changes, all the actions taken by air operators must lie within the boundaries of established regulation, in the interest of safety. 

As a professional working within this highly dynamic environment, you need to be familiar with the basic structure of regulation so that you can conduct your job diligently and professionally.   

Within this course, we will start by explaining where Air Operations regulation comes from, as well as its structure.  We will then briefly review the cover regulation, and each one of the different annexes. 

Throughout the course, you will enjoy state of the art videos, onscreen instructor training and interactive games to help you interact with the system and understand the subject better.  Throughout the course, you will be rewarded for your progress with RAVEN Experience Points, which you will be able to redeem into even more rewards.  Once you finish, you will be issued with a digital certificate which you can present to prospective or current employers.
