Flight Crew Training

Flight safety and flight crew performance are closely related in providing passengers with a safe flight service. In addition to our flight training academy in the U.S. to train new ab-initio pilots, EVA Air has also purchased the hightest certified level Full Flight Simulators to conduct aircraft transition training, upgrade training and annual recurrent training for our flight crews.

Our flight crew members are required to pass two recurrent trainings and checks every year. Additional training may be arranged based on their evaluation to ensure that their performance in the operation of the aircraft compiles with the Company’s standards. In 2015, the average rate for additional training of our fleets was between 5% to 6%.

To fulfill EVA Air’s safety mission statement, “We aim to assure your safety whenever you are airborne. We never compromise safety in the air or on the ground,” we have implemented a new training program. EVA Air is currently the only airline in Taiwan to be approved by the Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA) to conduct recurrent flight crew training using Evidence-Based Training (EBT).

Unlike traditional legacy training, Evidence-Based Training simulates actual flight scenarios and various types of emergency situations in unexpected circumstances to assess flight crew performance, as well as their ability to manage an abnormal aircraft state It is a new training program that the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and various state civil aviation authorities have been actively promoting in recent years.

EVA Flight Training Academy

The EVA Flight Training Academy was established in the U.S. in May 2013. It currently houses 8 single-engine and 1 twin-engine aircraft trainers. It has been certified by the local civil aviation authority’ to provide Private Pilot License (PPL), Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL) and Multi-crew Pilot License (MPL) flight training. Through nurturing our own cadet, EVA Air can not only improve the quality of basic flight training, but also ensure compliance with the Company’s high flight safety standards. The academy plans to accommodate 70 to 100 students in the future, once expansion plans are complete.
