Challenges

The increase in training demand, an expanding and more complex training infrastructure, and the lack of a digital compliance management system forced Skyguide to find solutions for the future training resource management. The aim was to find a partner who could offer a flexible, efficient, and powerful product that covers all needs in one.

The MINT solution fulfilled also all (FOCA) Federal Office of Civil Aviation compliance standards, and was a milestone for innovative, efficient, and future oriented training management within Skyguide.
