Social media crisis training: Aviation

Social Simulator works with airports, airlines and airport authorities across the US and beyond to train and test teams in handling a crisis situation. Our cutting-edge software brings simulations to life with fast-moving social media, stakeholder email and broadcast news coverage.

Why Social Simulator?

The aviation sector has seen how digital channels add unprecedented challenge to business operations. From the viral video of a passenger being forcibly ejected from a plane, to passengers live-streaming a terrifying emergency landing caused by a blown engine, being able to react to criticism quickly and effectively online is essential.

With the right skills and confidence to properly harness the channels, digital also offers a massive opportunity to build brand loyalty and customer engagement.

Our training and simulation platforms allow aviation teams to hone their digital communication skills in a safe, behind-closed-doors environment.

For emergency planners

Our simulation exercises test whether emergency and crisis response processes and structures are fit for purpose, expose any gaps, and identify future training needs.


For digital teams

Our platform allows digital responders to practise fast, direct means of engaging with the people that matter most – like passengers, staff, partner agencies and influencers.


For crisis leaders

Our simulation platform offers real-time ‘line of sight’ of the communications output of internal teams and partners, giving leaders the full moving picture for directing the response.
