Kathmandu, August 30

Himalaya Airlines has signed a long-term service agreement with Pelesys, a leading aviation training solutions provider of Canada, to receive online/offline training courses and training services for flight crew and other personnel.

Pelesys will provide its services in the form of Software as a Service (SaaS) solution, providing Training Management and Deployment System (TMDS) across the entire organisation. PelesysCrewPad, a tablet based offline LMS platform, will provide the flight crew and other personnel of Himalaya Airlines — a new Nepal-China joint venture airline company — with the ability to complete training online or offline, while continuing to maintain training compliance and complete audit control and data security, states a press release issued by the airlines.

Vijay Shrestha, vice president – Administration of Himalaya Airlines, said that the agreement adds a significant value to the company’s in-house training capabilities which will strengthen air safety standards from the beginning.

“Our flight crew will receive an effective international standard online or offline training content and other intellectual property produced and designed by Pelesys in the most cost effective manner,” said Shrestha.

Pelesys will also provide A320 Aircraft Type Rate training and library of Special Operations Courseware that will be employed within flight operations to address both initial, and recurrent, training requirements.

The Canadian firm is a training solutions provider to airlines and airline training organisations. Earlier, Himalaya Airlines had planned to launch services with a fleet of Airbus 319 and Airbus 320 aircraft from July this year.

However, the plan was changed after the devastating April/May earthquakes. It will now be starting international flights from 2016.
