Italian flight school Aviomar has selected VRpilot to deliver virtual reality (VR) procedure training tools for their Ryanair mentored APS MCC course on the Boeing 737NG.

VRpilot’s procedure training platform, VRflow, enables students to become familiar with procedures, cockpit layout and aircraft systems on their own before setting foot in the simulator.

The idea is to get students ready to focus on the multi-crew cooperation training from the very first lesson without spending instructor and simulator resources on technical skills, such as cockpit layout and procedure knowledge.

Captain Yari Franciosa, Chief Instructor-MCC at Aviomar said, “We are excited to announce our partnership with VRpilot. Combined with our high quality training standards, VRflow technology will help us optimize our APS MCC courses, leading to a faster and more accurate learning for our students.”

Aviomar Flight Academy is an official training partner of Ryanair, with training centres in Rome.

VRpilot is a Danish company that designs, develops and sells virtual reality training applications for professional use.
