Emirates signs with Sankhya for IT training system for flight crew

Emirates, the Dubai-based international airline, has chosen Indian IT company Sankhya to supply a training management system for its flight crew.

The multi-million dollar deal was signed in Dubai by Dermot Mannion, Emirates' President Group Support Services, and Sridhar Nadupalli, Managing Director of Sankhya.

Mr Mannion commented: "With Emirates' ambitious expansion underway, our requirement for highly-qualified pilots has accelerated. It's a challenge that this new system will help us meet by improving flight crew training efficiency. The end result is to make it easier for us to deliver the planned network growth and be there for our customers on schedule."

Sankhya engineers will develop the software for the system for flight training management, curriculum development, scheduling, grading, and the maintenance of records.

Mr Nadupalli said: "We are very pleased to have been able to meet the requirements of Emirates' Flight Training department for their present and future operations. This system is our most ambitious project to date. We already supply software systems to Emirates and we certain that this contract will prove mutually beneficial and strengthen our relationship."

The selection process for awarding the contract took three years and involved some 20 international IT companies.

The Flight Training Management Information System will be initiated in early January 2004 and is expected to be implemented within three months.

Emirates is already using Sankhya's SILICON Learning Management System (LMS) with integrated 'Question and Testing' for both computer-based and Web-based Global Distance Learning (CBT, WBT) for flight crew.
