Lufthansa Aviation Training becomes Launch Costumer of Airbus Virtual Procedure Trainer
- A new and innovative way for pilots to learn procedures with a smart VR system
- A320 procedure training for Lufthansa Group airlines across VR, PC, and iPad devices
Lufthansa Aviation Training (LAT) offers a new and innovative procedure training for pilots by integrating Airbus Virtual Procedure Trainer (VPT) into its training environment. LAT and Lufthansa Group will be the first to train with this smart VR system. The VR solution provides full immersion for the flight crews within an authentic, digitized cockpit to train Airbus Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs).
Gilad Scherpf, Head of Aviation Training Development Lufthansa Group: “As part of a unique partnership, training expertise will be mutually shared to provide an innovative, integrated pilot training approach. The resulting training enhancements will enable further use cases as well as regulatory acceptance. This will be based on the jointly gathered data while aiming at a trainee-centric, flexible solution to support key competencies”.
“Using our Virtual Procedure Trainer, pilots have demonstrably learnt procedures more effectively and efficiently, offering the potential to shorten their Type Rating course” says Fabrice Hamel, SVP of Airbus Training & Flight Operations Services. “The new tool also offers much more flexibility because trainees can choose to train alone with an AI, or together online”.
