Besimi et al. (2009) stated that browser authentication to physical access to browsers are some of the threats faced by a new system. The paper introduces three layers of security that can be used in a new system. These are physical control, software control, and social engineering. These layers are highly efficient in protecting data and credentials of users of LMS based learning tools. The layers specified here can be adapted for use in any technology system. The success depends on customizing the security depending on the number of users. This safety protection is a major facilitating condition for adoption of LMS.
Falleiro (2013) in the study looked into the differences of those students in terms of their motivation, performance and engagement who had access to LMS moodle and those who don’t. The results indicate that the groups having access to moodle showed gains in terms of motivation and performance. These advantages taken together seem to have great benefits for the stakeholders using the LMS technology as it impacted the academia of the users studied. This same can be replicated in the aviation industry.
In the paper titled “ E-learning in the aviation industry” by Laskaris (2015) stated that airlines globally are looking at ways to replace their traditional training management ways with systems involving LMS. The main reason for adopting this system is that regulatory obligations can be met, and to meets the needs of every staff as each one is employed in diverse roles like maintenance, engineering, or customer service. LMS based e-learning tools will help accomplish the set goals at lower costs thereby increasing efficiency.
Paul et al. (2015) concluded that the way people prefer learning has changed and this led to the need of adopting new techniques in teaching a practical understanding of LMS is needed to overcome the challenges and focus on facilitating conditions for the implementation of LMS. The researches use UTAUT model. The facilitating conditions as identified by them are finances, infrastructure, bandwidth, human resource capacity, and educational content.

Goel (2017) pointed out that that flight simulation training needs to be made more efficient and this can be achieved by incorporating LMS based online learning methods into training sessions.. For example, using a real simulator a pilot can get in-depth knowledge on features, the cockpit, standard procedure and the various functionalities. Safety and health regulations are part of the training that must be updated regularly as they are part of daily regulations. The use of LMS enable scenario based sessions that aid learners to introspect on their performance in real time situations. .it is a suitable way of training the employees so that knowledge is exchanged pertaining to aircraft operations for specific situations. In professional training there is learner interactions and legal queries that can be solved. The main area of concern is flight safety and using LMS it can be taught by flight specialists
El-Masri & Tarhini (2017) studied the Factors affecting the adoption of e-learning systems in Qatar and USA: Extending the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology 2 (UTAUT2 the study looked into factors that facilitated the adoption or rejection of eLearning in Qatar and taking an example of each a developing country and developed country. Data was collected by means of a survey from students and users of both the countries. Structural equation modeling was the main method of analysis. The result showed that hedonic motivation, habit, performance expectancy and trust were factors present in both samples. The results also revealed that social influence and the expectancy of effort needed to put in was an influencing factor in developing country but not in developed countries. The facilitating conditions influenced its adoption in developed countries but not in developing countries.
According to Avsoft International, some facilitating conditions of using LMS are Automatically notifying students of upcoming training, Automatically notifying training manager when training is not completed within a certain period of the due date, Automatically notify training manager when training has not been completed by the due date, Send messages to users via email or built-in LMS messaging board, Conduct surveys on effectiveness of training, View historical records of previous training (Avsoft International, 2019).
More (2008), in his paper comes to the conclusion that students prefer online submission of assignments to physical copies. This is primarily due to the increased growth of technology in lives. Technology has taken a place of prominence in the lives of youth. The ease with which they can check their grades online is one such reason for the high preference. There existed high correlation between discussion forums, grades and academic participation. Data gathered from studying LMS by Krause and Coates (2008) reveals that there is high participation for online courses offered.
Kakoty et al. (2011), in their paper titled elearning as a research area say that with increasing use of elearning there arises a need of tools, technologies and methodologies that can effectively deliver LMS based courses for each onganization. Since eLearning is still in its infancy stage in the educational and training field, there are yet bottlenecks that have to be overcome. The main social influence is that learners can meet in a virtual space with other stakeholders and have discussions on ideas, questions, and take part in simulations.
