Resilient Pilot and CAA International are very proud to present the pioneering Virtual Resilience Development Programme integrating a competency-based training and development approach CBTA. There is funding for 20 pilots to join the annual programme from July 2022.

Resilient Pilot is a not-for-profit volunteer run organisation established in 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Resilience Development Programme brings together the experience and expertise of Resilient Pilot’s mentors, coaches, CRMTs CBTIs and TRI/Es to provide pilots with an experience to enhance continuous development, self-evaluation skills, resilience and operational performance and safety.

The Resilient Pilot programme supports ICAO CBTA and EBT principles and is aligned to EASA/UK regulatory standards. In addition to CAAi’s financial contribution, Resilient Pilot will incorporate two CAAi course titles into its programme, namely, ‘Pilot and Peer Assistance’ and ‘Introduction to Human Factors’.

We are delighted to be given the opportunity to work with CAAi to deliver this initiative”
