Nov. 2-3 2021 EATS 19th European Airline Training Symposium  Berlin, Germany

VTR will be exhibiting our game changing FlightDeckToGo VR platform at the European Airline Training Symposium in Berlin November 2-3. We will have a full demonstration booth at the conference are very excited to be back in person at such an important industry event!

From the organizers:

The training community, airlines, simulation and training industry, not for profit organisations and regulators have always been critical to the safe operation of the world airline system. The ultimate safety tool is, after all, well trained people.

In a competitive industry it is our training teams that help raise the safety bar for all and after an unprecedented shut down of nearly two years we face multiple challenges in enabling the return of our industry to full operations.

We look forward to seeing you at EATS where you will be able to contribute to a global airline renaissance working with your peers to do so! We expect over 600 attendees and more than 50 leading businesses to exhibit.

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

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...

September 22, 2021 VTR Receives Enthusiastic Reception from Professional Airline Pilots

Private demos of VTR's 737 FlightDeckToGo at a Female Aviator's networking event inspired enthusiasm and momentum for pilot interest in the newest training technologies of VRFDs.

"I'm honestly just blown away", one aviator mentioned, "this is what we have been waiting for. It's exactly what we need."

Another indicated "I can't believe this exists and we don't have it yet. It's exactly how we should all be learning flows and procedures. I cannot wait for this to come to my airline!"

While the private VTR demos were not a formal part of the networking event, the general interest in the concept and desire to try it suggests a strong grassroots demand from Commercial Pilots themselves.

"The future of Aviation has arrived. It's here today." -CA. Evey Cormican, VTR Co-founder & CEO
