Abstract: Safety management in Aviation training is shaped by identification, evaluation, and measurement of the safety risks. The International Air Transportation Authority (IATA) Technology Roadmap (IATA 2022) offers a synopsis and evaluation of ongoing technology opportunities, which change the aviation environment with the implementation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and introduction of enhanced Minimum Crew Operations (eMCO) and Single Pilot Operations (SiPO). Change management (airplane design philosophy /ergonomics) affects aviation training design philosophy. A hybrid competency-based education approach in aviation needs interaction with the aviation industry and changes in flight operations (ICAO, 2022). The performance gap of these changes concerning the aviation industry, flight operations, and training is assessed and measured through Evidence-Based Training (EBT) pilot competencies (ICAO, 2016). Safety management systems (SMSs) in aviation training present a lag in identifying and implementing Safety Performance Indicators (SPIs). Implementation of Evidence-based Safety performance indicators as conceptualized in the aviation training through SPI’s (data-based parameters from students' flights) at a theoretical and practical level, act as safety (SMS), personal development (identify pilot weakness – Human Factors), and assessment (Competency-based education) tool (ICAO, 2018).Keywords: Evidence-Based Training (EBT), Safety Management Systems (SMSs), Safety Performance Indicators (SPIs), Human Factors (HF), ergonomics, aviation training.
