FAR Part 135 Online Aviation Training

Friday, October 13th, 2017

Introduction and Details

TrainingBoom’s FAR Part 135 online aviation training allows operators and their pilots to meet the training requirements of the FAA’s Federal Aviation Regulation (FAR) for Part 135 Initial and Recurrent training.

Online aviation training replaces traditional classroom training. The FAA encourages air carrier operators to evaluate online aviation training to fulfill their Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) requirements. Here are the entire Title 14 Part 135 regulations.

Traditional classroom training was the standard training method for FAR Part 135 operators before online learning became mainstream – in both academic institutions and in continuing professional education like FAR Part 135 training.

Training is about teaching — about the user’s interaction with the content. Academic leaders consistently rate online education as the same or superior to face-to-face instruction. High-quality online aviation training consists of three elements:

  • Quality software – The quality of the software is the first thing that a pilot notices. It needs to be easily accessible and allow the pilot to focus on the material while not being distracted.
  • Customized content – Pilots need customized content, not generic content.
  • Human training and live support – Most pilots require initial training and ongoing support to get up and running smoothly and continue with the coursework.

Online training gives crew members the flexibility to control when and where they train. TrainingBoom’s FAR Part 135 online training is tablet and mobile friendly, allowing pilots to complete training on almost any device at any location.
