Additionally, CPaT uses aircraft manufacturer licensed data in developing its distance learning courses where applicable. Licensed manufacturer data provides CPaT and its subject matter experts with source documents and manuals from which all approved Aircraft Flight Manuals are derived. The information contained within a manufacturer’s manuals include all available options from which airlines choose to equip their fleets. Licensed information also provides CPaT material that is the most current and correct. While airlines can deviate from manufacturer manuals, they are still required to receive approval from the manufacturer that the deviated material meets factory specifications and aviation safety regulations.
All CPaT products are regularly tested and designed to ensure that all course material successfully launches and tracks on the supported browsers and mobile platforms. Operating Systems tested include Windows, Mac OS, iOS, and Android OS along with the browsers Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Chrome, Safari, and FireFox. The CPaT Learning Management System and Mobile Applications are routinely tested several times a week and are tested anytime an update or new version of an operating system is announced and released. To maintain CPaT course accessibility for pilots in training, our 24/7 support includes escalation processes to ensure if a client user has accessibility issues or application functionality issues. At that point, the software engineering team is notified and able to address any problems that arise.
