Air Service Training Ltd (AST) is a wholly owned subsidiary of Perth College UHI, part of the University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI). AST remains a world leader in the field of Aviation training and has been since 1931, one of the longest-established organisations of its kind.
AST required a robust and accessible Student Record System (SRS) to enable the centralised management of student and training data and efficient delivery of services across training partners worldwide, whilst ensuring security and performance.
Flight engineering training is heavily legislated, where the training methods and assessment are determined by the rules of the associated government bodies. The data platform was required to be robust, and built to the exacting standards of the CAA (UK) and EASA (EU), both performing regular audits of the AST and the SRS system to ensure compliance.
Tayfusion produced a new database from the ground up including the following:
The SRS Training database is a complex system. An array of system features was required for students, sponsors, staff, managers, auditors and admin users. We worked with AST to develop the required functionality to enable staff to oversee and manage all student records, achievements and activities.
The SRS functionality would include:
SRS has become business critical to AST. A complex platform that continues to grow with the organisation. AST is an example of a system that is fully bespoke and designed specifically to meet the business needs of AST. We have developed a system which modernises their data management function and which continues to exceed the expectations of AST.
