Eelco Hoogvorst


Safety Manager

where I honed my skills by instructing ab initio pilots on FNPT trainers. Presently, I find immense satisfaction as a Type Rating Instructor (TRI) and Type Rating Examiner (TRE) on the Boeing 737, coaching colleagues as they advance in their careers. During my tenure as a Fokker 50 pilot, I also took on the role of a flight safety officer, assessing Air Safety Reports (ASRs) and leading investigations into flight safety incidents. Now, at Dutch Aviation Trainers and DATOS, I leverage this extensive experience in my dual role as a flight safety and compliance monitoring manager. In this capacity, I continually evaluate our training against EASA standards and explore avenues for further enhancement. My background as a TRI/TRE enables me to make informed decisions regarding the adherence to national and international regulations within DATOS. Should anything during your training prompt questions or concerns, no matter how small, I encourage you to reach out. You can contact me via compliance@dutchaviationtrainers.com or any other method that suits you. Remember, it’s through collaboration that we achieve excellence. I look forward to contributing to your training journey at DATOS!
