Washington D.C. February 1, 2017 – Indev, LLC is pleased to announce it has developed a five-year training Roadmap for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Alaska Flight Service Stations (FSS). Alaska FSS employees provide mission critical Air Traffic Control (ATC) advisory and Flight Planning services to pilots and ATC facilities within the state of Alaska. In this role, Alaska Flight Service plays a vital role in the commerce of the state, helping to move hundreds of thousands of planes and passengers and tons of cargo into and around the state annually. Currently, Alaska has three hub FSS facilities: Fairbanks (FAI), Kenai (ENA), and Juneau (JNU), as well as fourteen outlying stations.
As an established provider of ATC technical training in the FAA’s Western Service Area, Indev understands the technical training needs and challenges facing the Alaska FSS organization. Indev developed a comprehensive ATC technical training Roadmap which addresses requirements to train an expected influx of new ATCSs due to retirements, reduces overall costs, and modernizes legacy course materials and training delivery methods. The Roadmap identifies use of part-task training, adult learning theory, eLearning, and gamification to upgrade simulation and classroom training approaches. The outcome for Alaska FSS is reduced training cost per student and shorter, more effective training for faster ATCS certification.
