Pacific Sky is a Transport Canada and EASA -approved provider of new pilot initial licensing and ratings as well as Multi-Engine, IFR and Twin Otter pilot training.  

“Pacific Sky is excited to introduce the Fox Training Management System into our operations,” said Mauro Pezzetta, General Manager for Training & Simulation. “We were looking for one system to cover all our needs. 

“The Fox Training Management System covers all of our operational requirements ranging from resource scheduling, scheduling management, pilot training records, qualification management and learning management systems,” said Mauro Pezzetta, GM for training and simulation with Pacific Sky.

Fox is used as a solution for large training operations, including American Airlines, ANA, Boeing, LATAM and United Airlines. Britannica explains Pacific Sky will have access to the same comprehensive tools as these larger organizations, while also leveraging Britannica’s model for smaller companies based on scalable pricing, onboarding tools, and preconfigured, structured business process solutions.

Britannica explains Pacific Sky will use Fox to manage planning and scheduling, instructional devices and other training resources, instructors, qualifications, recordkeeping, training development, learning and testing, performance evaluation and analytics. Pacific Sky instructors and evaluators will use the Fox Grading app to understand training quality and maintain standards by capturing performance data, in real-time on mobile devices, both online and offline.
