EATS Show in Berlin 2017

Possible Futures for Augmented Reality and Gamification in Pilot Training

Ultra-high resolution augmented reality (AR) hardware, rapid application development software for AR and conventional 3D modelling is opening educational opportunities that have never before been seen. This could mean the greatest revolution in methods for conveying knowledge and understanding since the invention of the Caxton press!

At Halldale Media’s EATS 2017 conference in Berlin next month, Padpilot Managing Director Graham Cownie, will be discussing what this exciting new technology could mean for the future of pilot training:

“Gamification could provide a new approach to self-study and self-paced learning that renders conventional Computer Based Training obsolete. AR could be harnessed for rich and engaging classroom experiences, and Virtual Reality could be used to place the student on the flight deck of accident aircraft for much deeper insights into human behaviour.

But these new technologies also have their limits, so how do we best use them effectively?”

Graham will be be speaking to this question, and more on 1 November 2017. EATS (The European Airline Training Symposium) is a leading aviation training event for Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The annual conference and tradeshow specialises in aviation training and simulation and brings together the industry’s leading professionals to promote safety and share best practice in pilot and cabin crew training.
