How can AIRDAT Passport help?

Passport is used to manage complete airport training scheme catalogues, from end to end, whether landside or airside. This video outlines how Passport can be applied to your airside training schemes.

Passport - Key features

Easy to use

When things are slow and difficult to understand people tend not to use them. Passport keeps things simple and clear for users. This means minimal system training required and people are up and running in no time.


Measuring someone's competency at a particular task can be done in so many ways. Luckily with Passport, you can use online assessments, track time-based experience, practicals, eLearning and competency form checks.

Course management

Have you scheduled a course, then managed the subsequent bookings? Labour intensive, right? Passport sorts dates, times, durations, joining instructions, fees, cancellation terms and means you are open for business 24/7.

Trainer licensing

Want to licence third parties to deliver your training? It can be very beneficial to do this, but how do you ensure their qualifications remain valid and standards are maintained? Let Passport take care of this for you.

Training assets

Rooms, trainers & documents. Keep control of these elements and you’re on the way to maintaining a successful training operation. Passport makes it easy, avoiding double bookings and under utilisation.

Permit issue

Need to issue training permits? With Passport, the system generates permits ready to be printed via plastic card printers, labelling devices or good old fashion paper printers. No third party software required.

Competency & compliance

Training required vs training completed. That old chestnut. Forget the spreadsheets and highlighters, with Passport set the competencies against a job role and relax. You’ll achieve 100% compliance in no time.

Penalty schemes

Who's been causing issues out there? Well, with Passport, you know. So does the individual, their manager and the next stakeholder company at your airport they might be moving to. Complete transparency.

Reporting & billing

Throughout Passport, we have integrated the ability to generate the reports you need. Need another? Just ask. Want us to bill on your behalf? We already support over £1.6m of airport billing annually.

Case study

The challenge

London Gatwick, the worlds busiest single runway airport required a system that could bring efficiencies and assurance to their Airside Driver Training Scheme.

The audience

Gatwicks airside driving community is made up of over 10,000 drivers, 300 stakeholder companies and a number of in-house and 3rd party trainers.

The solution

AIRDAT Passport was utilised to approve and licence trainers, build a complete database of operators and their drivers, streamline bookings, standardise and bring materials and testing online, consolidate the points offence scheme and permit generation, with the ability to fully audit whether on the ramp or in the office.

The outcomes

Gatwick now has their complete airside driving community stored within AIRDAT Passport.  They can perform on the spot audits using our integrated smartphone app, AIRDAT VISA which has resulted in an increase in compliance levels.  The data has also shown that drivers trained through AIRDAT, using the Passport system are 2.5 times less likely to be involved in an incident or accident.
