Exeter Airport Training and Compliance

– helping operators organise their training and company compliance in one system

The Challenge

Exeter Airport is a small but busy and successful airport in East Devon, UK.  The airport was looking to digitise training for their in house team and third parties utilising the airport, as well as bringing airside operator licensing online.  They needed a solution that was cost-effective and helped to minimise the amount of manual administration.

“In terms of safety, Exeter were operating to the standard of a major international airport.  This takes its toll on a smaller team, and we were keen to show that our systems could help and be cost-effective for an airport of this size. “

Charles Cardwell , Founder & CEO - AIRDAT

The Solution

AIRDAT worked closely with the team at Exeter Airport to map out their existing training plan and move this into Passport.  In addition, our team consulted on the information required for operator licencing on the airport and built the process into Onboard.

All aspects managed for Exeter Airports Airside Operator Licence Application.

One integrated system to manage all aspects of Exeters Internal & External training and compliance management.

The VISA App allows Exeter to validate an individuals training at the security gate or whilst out and about.

Our project managers provided implementation support to bring all the information and stakeholders together for a smooth roll out.

The Result

Exeter Airport is saving a huge amount of administration time, whilst making their processes more robust.  Additionally, Exeter Airports training and compliance update has also allowed the airport to monetise the training and operator licencing it provides to ensure the costs of delivery are covered and the systems remain cost-neutral.  The airport is now looking to extend its use to include fleet management within Onboard.
