In order to help stimulate a lagging student retention rate in the flight instruction industry, Jeppesen recently launched a marketing awareness campaign to introduce certified flight instructors (CFIs), universities and flight school operators to the benefits of integrating Jeppesen’s industry-leading, complete training solutions.

Jeppesen partners with top flight schools, universities and CFIs in the industry to develop customized training solution suites that resonate with the learning styles of today’s student pilots to increase training retention and success rates. Widely known for traditional aviation and maintenance training textbooks and syllabus offerings, Jeppesen has recently introduced several online training courses, such as Private Pilot Online, Sport Pilot Online and Instrument Online to meet the needs of current students through online delivery of training information.

“Jeppesen online training provides CFIs, flight schools and university programs with customized total training solutions that help to improve student retention, which currently stand at a troubling 75 percent failure rate,” said David Wright, Jeppesen senior manager, Training Solutions. “For the future health of the aviation industry, it is vitally important to train a new generation of pilots. Providing total Jeppesen training solutions that resonate with the evolving learning styles of student pilots is a key first step in achieving that goal.”

Jeppesen total training solutions also delivers convenience for flight training organizations, by bundling customized curriculum and student purchasing elements directly from a single provider, to eliminate the need for acquisition of educational materials such as charts and navigational data from multiple sources. Through this program, Jeppesen provides pilot supplies, test preparation materials, e-learning programs, training program syllabus guidelines and industry leading IFR and VFR charts as part of customized training solutions.

To standardize the total training solution suite, Jeppesen training officials coordinated with original equipment manufacturers (OEM) and industry partners, such as Diamond Flight Centers, NAFI, Cirrus Standardized Training Centers and light sport aircraft (LSA) representatives to ensure the highest level of training solution quality. Jeppesen similarly partners with universities, flight schools and certified flight instructors to understand the needs of today’s student pilots and develop customized training solutions.
