Asian Airline Orders Airbus Virtual 3D Training Device Solution
Loongair, one of the fastest-growing, privately-owned airlines in China, is the first Chinese airline to order the A320 Family Airbus Competence Training (ACT) suite from Airbus. ACT Suite, available for all Airbus aircraft types, is a virtual 3D training device for maintenance training. This maintenance training digital tool is an operationally oriented scenario-based programme. It allows for both theoretical – with animated system descriptions – and practical troubleshooting and maintenance tasks.
Compared with traditional maintenance training methods, ACT suite provides all the advantages of digital tools, especially in the process of monitoring training progress in full alignment with the Airbus Training Standards with a continuous stream of up-to-date OEM data. With access to the interactive virtual tools and scenarios, both instructors and trainees benefit from an “immersive” experience in maintenance training. Meanwhile, by utilising the maintenance integrated solution to address the initial and recurrent training at the customers’ base, training can be completed with higher efficiency, lower costs and optimised human resources allocation.
“We are very pleased to have Loongair join our list of customers for the A320 Family ACT suite. Loongair was also the first customer for Airbus’ Evidence based Training launched in May 2022, demonstrating the innovation driven development that our strategic partnership is built upon,” said George Xu, Airbus EVP and Airbus China CEO. “This is the first time a Chinese airline has placed an order for this service and clearly shows that Airbus services are being increasingly favored by Chinese customers.”
To date, Loongair operates 64 A320 Family aircraft. It’s well-acknowledged in China for its fast growing fleet, efficient and professional personnel and appetite for innovation. The business cooperation between Loongair has laid solid foundations for Airbus to promote service in China and expand the footprint of the services aftermarket, gaining customers’ trust by delivering more diversified and flexible services solutions.
