VTR Co-hosts EASA Immersive Training Technologies in Aviation Event

EASA and Halldale Events proudly hosted the Immersive Training Technologies in Aviation, co-sponsored by VTR.

The event was described by Halldale as "A two-day virtual event, in which you will hear from training community leaders who will review XR training technologies for Fixed & Rotary wing, Cabin, and Maintenance training, including approval and implementation.

Virtual Reality, Mixed, Augmented, and Extended Reality technologies are moving at an extremely rapid pace and with the key barriers of fidelity and ‘simulator sickness’ solved they offer potential training solutions at extremely attractive costs offering a much-improved return on investment than traditional devices.

The ongoing pandemic has increased pressure on our community to achieve more at less cost while improving training quality, and the recent approval of the first VR training device for rotary pilot training by EASA is significant and indicates what may be done with these ‘game changing' technologies.

During the two days of the event, EASA and industry leaders explored the potential for these new Immersive Technologies and how they may be integrated into training programs, including the development of new curriculums in support of other key industry initiatives such as EBT."

VTR Co-Founder and CTO, Rick Parker, presented at the event, and offered an overview of how Virtual Reality Training may potentially offer an expansion to training opportunity, without expanding training footprints.
