Dubai-based international airline, Emirates, has signed a multi-million dollar deal with Indian company Sankhya to supply a management system for flight crew training. The system will use a powerful resource optimisation engine, developed exclusively for the airline, which will provide comprehensive project management for long-and short-term training and flight schedule disruptions. The software will also look after flight training, scheduling, grading, curriculum development and record archiving.
