2005 – Our Birth
The company started in France back in 2005, founded by Olivier DAVID who has dual expertise in training processes and information technology. The initial and main activity was security training delivered both in classic mode, and web-based training. BUTTERFLY AERO TRAINING was a pioneer on the French airport environment to deliver web-based online training for airport security.
2009 – Strategical decision
BUTTERFLY AERO TRAINING made a strategical decision by only focusing on web-based training to become the exclusive specialist in this area. No more classic trainings were run from that period and all investment went to web-based E-learning module development. We then did extend the offer to a larger scope of modules in the area of security and safety training in the aviation industry.
