Description

Extended Reality technologies like Virtual Reality & Augmented Reality have become commonplace in the fourth industrial revolution. They play significant roles across functions such as design, training, safety, maintenance and repair. In an industry like the airline training, it is far more important to make use of these technologies to cut down on both time and cost. Usually, trainers need to travel to different locations to offer training to airline crew using visual aids such as powerpoint, videos and physical mockups of different airlines. This is usually time consuming, expensive and restrictive. Occasionally, the airline crew that are geographically separated across multiple locations also use 2D conferencing solutions for some of their trainings but they are not engaging enough. With the introduction of the concept of collaboration in VR/AR, airline training will see a paradigm shift at the training centers by bringing an experience of crew collaborating with a remote trainer in a virtual airport and virtual airlines. This will reduce the delays in training for airport familiarization, airline walkthrough, English communication, etc.
