About Butterfly Training Ireland

2005 – Our Birth

The company started in France back in 2005, founded by Olivier DAVID who has  expertise in aviation security training, pedagogical design processes and eLearning.
The initial and main activity was security training delivered both in the classroom, and web-based. 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.

2010 – Leader on the French market

We designed a new LMS to provide more features and more training. At this time, Butterfly Aero Training is the market leader in security Training for the airport personnel.
