Recovering Effective Aviation Maintenance Training in a Socially Distanced World
With today’s fast-changing threats, being able to adapt to and integrate fast-growing technologies is the only way the aviation training community will be able to adapt and react quickly enough to ongoing and constantly evolving challenges. However, traditionally speaking, even innovative technology integrations have demonstrated long time-to-field, a lack of cost-effective flexibility, and a tendency to become quickly obsoleted by the next newest technological trend. In an environment where new challenges are too fast-changing to be predictable, and when technology continuously outpaces itself, how are aviation trainers able to adopt processes and tools that will enable them to become resilient and adaptable enough to stay safely ahead of all the rapid changes? How can we implement training that can effectively and safely reduce human error while maintaining remote and socially distanced training conditions?
In this presentation, I will draw on extensive research into new learning modalities and the efficacy of immersive (AR/VR/XR) learning technologies and strategies, along with use cases of current immersive training implementers, to discuss the technological tools that are effective, those that are not, and the best strategies for developing a digitalized aviation maintenance training program that is as adaptive, high-fidelity, and resilient is it needs to be to combat the rapid appearance of changes and challenges. Learn from the examples and strategies that have allowed current tech adopters to see the most success in their own digital transitions, and apply research findings on immersive tools and applications so you can develop your own remote, high-fidelity, adaptable, and scalable digitalized training plans for your complex aviation systems.
