Extended Reality (XR) combines virtual and real worlds to create immersive experiences.

It is like stepping into a video game but feeling like you are in the action itself. This technology allows maintenance technicians to learn and practice in an immersive virtual environment, making training more interactive and effective. This whitepaper explores the benefits of leveraging Virtual Reality (VR), Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Augmented Reality (AR) technologies to shape aircraft maintenance training for the benefit of all stakeholders in a constantly evolving aviation ecosystem.

A word from our Division President

“Aviation is one of the industries where the adoption of emerging technologies is accelerating. Virtual Reality, especially when it comes to aircraft technician training, is proving to be a high value solution. One of the main reasons VR is used in maintenance training is to lower the risks associated with traditional training methods.”
