Flybe, Europe's largest regional airline, has selected EFOS from Evoke Systems to provide electronic crew training records in a strategic move away from paper based records.

Maintaining paper training records for 700 pilots and 900 cabin crew geographically dispersed over the UK had become manually intensive, cumbersome and a potentially error prone process for Flybe. Confirmation of training and check statuses under a complex regulatory regime was a continuous challenge. It was clear that the adoption of electronic training records was essential to Flybe’s growth plans. The selection and introduction of EFOS has delivered not only an immediate and huge potential cost saving but also a significant improvement in the efficiency of the training process.

Steve Deverall, Training Standards Manager at Flybe comments that, "EFOS has significantly reduced the burden of paper while speeding up and improving our training processes. Also, by blending training feedback, actual experience and regulatory compliance, EFOS has certainly met the needs of our ATQP for flexibility in pilots’ simulator training.

"We were impressed by Evoke’s presentation and their willingness to engage with us as partners to tailor the product for Flybe's needs. They have an impressive record, successfully addressing challenges similar to those we faced, and were responsive and helpful during the installation process. And we couldn't have further developed our ATQP without EFOS."

Martin Smith, Managing Director of Evoke Systems confirms; "EFOS isn’t just a software package. We back it with extensive domain knowledge and experience to become trusted advisers and partners for our customers."

The installation of EFOS starting in May 2012, has already delivered positive returns. With the continued and planned expansion at Flybe the training administration task can now be fulfilled without the need for additional headcount.

Flybe has also enjoyed very positive feedback from users; Steve Deverall again; "People don't usually like change but EFOS has been very well received from the start."
