Civilian Benefits

With AIVIator, instructor pilots can spend more time in the cockpit on advanced concepts. Supported by an intelligent teaching assistant, objective student performance data and analytics help pinpoint and mitigate problems, before you fly.

Moving the pipeline to the left opens enormous opportunities to attract, identify, and qualify greater numbers of more talented candidates. New pilots will show up Day 1 having already mastered the maneuvers.

For the aspiring pilot and sim enthusiast

  • Accelerate mastery and gain confidence in the cockpit
  • Develop, improve and validate your flying skills in record time

For instructors, flight schools, and educators

  • Improve training efficiency, consistency and completions
  • Help students overcome learning hurdles and spend more time on advanced skills
  • Educators: bring thrilling hands-on flying skills to the classroom, without the need for aviation experts

Case Study – Liberty University

Liberty University Aviation students complete TakeFlight Academy in the Liberty sim lab before getting into the cockpit. During this 8 week training period, students master skills at their own pace and style without a flight instructor present. Liberty University is having tremendous success with TakeFlight training 200 on-campus flight students every year.

Case Study – University of North Dakota Research

A recent study from the University of North Dakota using our Private Pilot courseware proves the efficacy of AI-based versus human flight instructor. Notable quotes from that study include:

“When considering the transfer effectiveness of an artificial intelligence-based simulator pre-training program on the total flight hours realized by initial student pilots in the Private Pilot curriculum, the TER was 0.34 for student pilots who conducted simulator pre-training. This ratio indicates that for each 10 hours of simulator pretraining, flight training time is reduced by 3.4 hours, on average.”


“The results of the study showed that students who conducted the pre-training lessons (1) took fewer calendar days to complete the pre-solo block of Private Pilot training, (2) required fewer hours in the airplane during the pre-solo block of Private Pilot training, and (3) required fewer ground training hours during the pre-solo block of Private Pilot training. The findings of this study show a comparable level of transfer effectiveness in utilizing a human flight instructor versus using an artificial intelligence-based flight instructor. This is significant when considering methods to supplement reduced flight instructor staffing, while still providing a quantifiable benefit to the student pilots in the flight training organization.”
