The Ground Training Workstream is tasked to examine the off-aircraft learning environment for pilots and determine how existing regulations might best be updated to capitalise on today's technology, teaching methods and assessment techniques.
The Helicopter Role Training Workstream is developing a new manual on civil Helicopter Mission Training that will, when approved, become an ICAO Document.
The Outreach, Recruitment & Retention Workstream continues to work closely with colleagues in the ICAO Next Generation of Aviation Professionals (NGAP) Outreach Programme.
The Pilot Monitoring Workstream is tasked to examine the way that monitoring is taught and assessed with a view to recommending improvements that will help reduce the high accident rate where inadequate monitoring is cited as a causal factor.
The Training Practices Workstream effort is currently focused on the provision of synthetic training in voice communications in FSTDs and seeking to update current ICAO provisions on ground training and their interpretation and implementation by CAAs and operators.
The Training Providers Workstream effort is focused on working with the leading flight crew training providers with a view to, in the longer term, helping them establish an international forum to provide a coordinated voice in their discussions about flight crew training with, most notably, ICAO and the CAAs.
