Many ๐š๐ข๐ซ๐ฅ๐ข๐ง๐ž๐ฌ have lately implemented innovative technology such as biometrics, wearables, and robotics to improve their operations. However, one area where there has been a lot of activity recently is Extended Reality service testing (๐€๐ฎ๐ ๐ฆ๐ž๐ง๐ญ๐ž๐ ๐‘๐ž๐š๐ฅ๐ข๐ญ๐ฒ, ๐•๐ข๐ซ๐ญ๐ฎ๐š๐ฅ ๐‘๐ž๐š๐ฅ๐ข๐ญ๐ฒ ๐š๐ง๐ ๐Œ๐ข๐ฑ๐ž๐ ๐‘๐ž๐š๐ฅ๐ข๐ญ๐ฒ). Because of advancements in both Virtual Reality hardware and software, services are growing more complex while also becoming more affordable. Advances in head mounted display and smart glasses technology are also allowing airlines to install additional Extended Reality services, which are projected to increase fast in the coming years. Checkout various uses of Virtual Reality in airlines:

Traditionally, training consists of a combination of classroom education, aircraft visits, and scenarios practiced on cabin devices to replicate door and slide functioning, aircraft evacuation on land and water, and firefighting. Airlines are becoming more cost sensitive, and they want to save time and money while still offering effective and efficient training to their cabin staff. Virtual reality and augmented reality are currently utilized in flight crew, ground crew, and engineering training, so incorporating components of these into cabin crew training is a natural evolution. It may be held in any size room or made totally portable by using a headset connected to a smartphone or tablet. Specific abilities can be learned in a virtual world without jeopardizing a personโ€™s safety in the actual world.

Virtual reality elicits a visceral and emotional response that is likely to improve recall and learning, as anyone who has experienced it will attest. The learner is involved in the experience from the start, and can take part in aircraft familiarization and interact with simulated equipment in the galley or cabin.

InfiVR provides virtual training software and gadgets based on VR simulations that can help to minimize training footprints and costs while also boosting training quality.

At the moment, both Virtual Reality and Traditional training are viable options for cabin crew training. ๐๐š๐ญ๐š๐ซ ๐€๐ข๐ซ๐ฐ๐š๐ฒ๐ฌ, ๐€๐ฆ๐ž๐ซ๐ข๐œ๐š๐ง ๐€๐ข๐ซ๐ฅ๐ข๐ง๐ž๐ฌ, ๐š๐ง๐ ๐๐ก๐ข๐ฅ๐ข๐ฉ๐ฉ๐ข๐ง๐ž ๐€๐ข๐ซ๐ฅ๐ข๐ง๐ž๐ฌ are among the airlines that use it for recurrent training.

Many commercial aircraft pilots are aware of the possible hazards of automation and are working to gain a better understanding of these complex technologies, their limitations, potential areas of confusion regarding their functioning, and how to train so that they can use them effectively. Virtual reality training makes it easy to capture the operations of the flight deck. Given the hazardous nature of their employment, aircraft carrier flight deck crews require consistent training. These crews assist pilots in landing on a short spit of pitching steel in the middle of the ocean, amid a flurry of roaring engines, whirling propellers, and severe gusts. Pilots can practice basic cockpit procedures using virtual reality. For learner pilots, full-motion simulators give realistic conditions. Flight deck crews could previously only train on the job. InfiVR allows them to train wherever they like using latest Virtual Reality technologies and simulators in an affordable manner.

It provides pilots with portable training using a โ€œstudy & practice toolโ€ that they can use at home or remotely, and it is able to supplement full flight simulator sessions conducted in flight training centers. For remote learning, ground school, and flight training, InfiVR offers a complete custom developed family of pilot and maintenance technician training tools. These training gadgets are both portable and adaptable, and have been used in classrooms, computer labs, and online learning environments.

Imagine training whenever and wherever you want!

Company training can now be completed remotely and without the use of an actual aircraft thanks to virtual reality. JetStar has discovered that employing virtual reality has resulted in operational efficiencies, with VR training sessions taking only about 30 minutes compared to 3 to 3.5 hours in the real world, and has opted to expand the programโ€™s size.

Virtual Reality is already being utilized to improve the efficiency of maintenance and cabin crew training. With a compound annual growth rate of 61.2 percent, the virtual reality and augmented reality industry in aviation is expected to expand to over $1372 million by the end of 2025. The use of virtual reality in the aviation sector is obviously here to stay. Companies that quickly adopt it will be able to keep ahead of the competition and we at InfiVR provide cutting edge Virtual reality based collaborative solutions to leading aerospace and manufacturing companies with a very high focus on remote collaborative design, research and product development.
