Air Navigation Institute – Introduction

Dear All,

Beat Zimmermann, Flight Procedure Design Instructor, PANS-OPS expert
Beat Zimmermann, ANI Founder and Owner

You are looking for Flight Procedure Design Training or Flight Validation Pilot Courses? ICAO PANS-OPS? You found it all on this website! I am Beat Zimmermann, founder, owner, manager and if you wish Master of Ceremony (MOC…) of the ANI. I am powered by the questions «what is it that makes a good Flight Procedure Designer?», «what would the ideal Flight Procedure Design training look like?» and «what available courses and training would I have appreciated back in the times when I was designing?» Based on that I have developed the training programs for Flight Procedure Design, Flight Validation Pilots, complemented with specific training such as ARINC 424 or Geodesy. Because I keep learning from students in each and every course, listen to my inner self and as a result I adjust, improve and sometime re-invent our training courses.

Because you might have a number of questions, we all answer them in a downloadable file for each course. The file describes the where, what and how of the courses. We have a pre-requisite test for the Basic Course in the ANI Online Test Center that shows you and us where you stand and how well you are bound to cope with the material you will be confronted with. The Test Center will be gradually built up so in the future all courses have featured progress and mastery tests available. Here you can meet the ANI instruction team. The ANI classes can be streamed, we have full 4K streaming capabilities in the Training Center. The ANI has a YouTube Channel with videos about specific topics and training updates.

Because we have our environment in mind, our training faculty is based on electronic material wherever and whenever possible. Students have personal access to an online repository, where they can review course material, access filmed class sessions where available and download important documents.

So welcome to the ANI world, spend some time on this website, where most of your queries will be answered. We can assure you that the name ANI stands for high quality training that you will long remember.

Yours sincerely,

Beat Zimmermann
