Colabatistto told the publication training represents 24 percent of enterprise assets, Angus Batey reports.
“In order to fully qualify an operator of any type ““ a pilot, a crewman, somebody on the ground doing air control ““ it seems intuitive that learning and practicing in a simulator is a great way to go,“ Colabatistto told Aviation Week.
He added that industry plays a role in informing policies and standards, Aviation Week reports.
