Virtual Flight Training - A Case Study

Virtual Flight Training - A Case Study

Flight training is an expensive and multifaceted pursuit. With advancements in technology combined with traditional methods of training, pilots have many more advantages than previously available. Despite this, some of the same issues keep popping up. Instructors consistently find students showing up unprepared for lessons resulting in longer ground briefings, wasted flight time, or the entire cancellation of the flight. With the ability to pursue flexible online ground school, students have been lacking a virtual resource to enhance their flight training experience. 


The Flight Training Dilemma

Flight schools have been battling the same problem for decades. How to ensure students are fully prepared and ready for the lessons they are about to embark on. Traditionally student pilots seeking an immersive flight deck experience would be required to come to the airport to sit in an airplane or simulator during it’s down time. This was often not possible due to these assets being highly utilized for revenue training. The problem then was students not getting the full immersive experience that would help them progress. As a result students often waste valuable time and money with the engines running as they fumble through basic checklists and procedures. Student pilots were also finding themselves falling short when it comes to really understanding and becoming proficient in the emergency procedures. 

The Initial Fix

The first solution proposed as the modern era was the use of simulators or flight training devices.  While a great idea, these resources still cost users a lot of money and there is usually only one or two available at a time meaning only one or two students would actually be able to benefit from it. 


The Solution

One or two students benefiting from a training resource is not a great return on investment. If the goal is to produce safe, competent pilots then there needs to be a better solution. Guess what? There is! By using Virtual Flight Deck flight schools are able to maximize the student learning by giving them the immersive flight deck experience anywhere at any time on their chosen device. Students can all learn at the same time without the need to book expensive resources or take up valuable time in an aircraft with the engine running.
