Visionary Training Resources announces virtual reality airline pilot training with Atlas Air
Tampa, Florida: Visionary Training Resources (VTR), an innovator in aviation technology, announced that it will partner with Atlas Air, a leading global provider of outsourced aircraft and aviation operating services, to develop a virtual reality (VR) learning tool that will transform the way its pilots prepare for simulator training. Leveraging the power of VR technology, the FlightDeckToGo® tool will deliver an immersive and highly effective training experience for Atlas pilots with an unparalleled level of realism and interactivity.
Key features of the tool include realistic simulations that allow pilots to practice scenarios that closely mirror the real-world cockpit experience, enhanced interactivity with aircraft controls that create a hands-on learning experience, and adaptive learning features that adapt to the individual needs and progress of each pilot to provide a tailored and efficient training curriculum.
“We are excited to partner with Atlas to revolutionize pilot training and safety standards within the aviation industry,” said Captain Evey Cormican, VTR founder and chief executive officer. “We believe that this cutting-edge learning tool will not only improve pilot training but also contribute to enhanced safety in the skies,” said Evey.
“Virtual reality will elevate the experience for pilots in our training program, and we’re thrilled to be part of this initiative. The VTR offering includes exactly what pilots need: immersive flight decks, FMC programming, eye tracking, and an intuitive user experience,” said John Schumacher, Atlas Air Senior Director, Flight Procedures, Training and Standards. “We look forward to partnering with VTR to offer our pilots the best training in the industry.”
By early 2024, VTR will be providing training platforms and instruction tailored to Atlas Air procedures and ground school learning curriculum for their Boeing 737, 747, 767, and 777 fleets. Customizing the FlightDeckToGo® platform to Atlas Air’s procedures will provide pilots with an efficient learning tool and expanded training options. “The VTR and Atlas teams have been working tirelessly to make this partnership a reality,” said Cormican. “Together, we are bringing today’s technology to today’s pilots.”
