Leverage Our Relationships With These Industry Leaders
USAIG customers – who insure a turbine-powered aircraft or place multiple policies with us – can take advantage of a range of safety-focused programs delivered by our safety associates. Each is an industry leader in its respective field.
Advanced Aircrew Academy
Advanced Aircrew Academy enables flight departments to fulfill training needs in the most efficient and affordable way by providing high quality professional pilot, flight attendant, flight coordinator, maintenance, and line service modules delivered via the web. Over 75 eLearning modules are in their constantly growing and updated training library. For policyholders that select this option, an in-depth review of current training practices by Advanced Aircrew Academy begins the process. A comprehensive report from this process follows to inform and guide strategic refinement to the training plan, and the operator can then select four eLearning modules to seed that effort. Additional training modules or capacity beyond what is provided with the package can be obtained at discounted USAIG member rates. Operators that are already established annual training clients and do not need the training assessment can use their Performance Vector benefit to obtain a generous contribution toward their annual Advanced Aircrew Academy training costs.
Aircare’s one-day pilot emergency procedures course is drawn from its well-known FACTS curriculum and covers land and water evacuation and firefighting using aircraft cabin simulators. The training is available for up to two pilots. Alternatively, policyholders can select a discounted subscription for one aircraft to Aircare Access Assistance, which includes tele-medical assistance by board-certified emergency physicians, free attendance at aircrew medical response training, medical kit contents tracking and 24/7/365 crew support services.
