Abstract

Augmented Reality is transforming aviation training by allowing us to bring digital content in our real world with the use of wearable technologies such as Microsoft HoloLens. Wearable technologies can transform your aviation training using innovative methods to optimize engagement and retention by mapping 3D models, videos and holographic interactive content to your current training materials. These advanced training methods can be a cost-effective way to create engaging content to improve performance, reduce errors and aid in retention. This approach combined with customizable mobile applications create immersive experiences which optimize mixed reality to encourage the effective progression to advance skills, aid in retention, allow practice, bridge the gap between simulation and the classroom, while embracing new technologies to engage the future generation aviation learners.
