The challenge

Technical Engineer Training in aviation can be time-consuming and expensive. In this case, training on General Electric’s F110 turbofan jet engine, used on F-14, F-16 and F-15E jets, is often restricted by the availability of physical engine units to train on. It requires ‘hands-on’ experience with expensive equipment which can be easily damaged by inexperienced trainees. But of course it’s essential that engineers are put through a realistic training experience and rigorously assessed.

The solution

Myriad Global developed a Virtual Reality application and accompanying blended e-learning solution. This consists of a photorealistic, digital twin of the F110, enabling trainees to learn at no risk to themselves or the equipment. This combined immersive training tool and e-learning package are designed to be used alongside the physical training curriculum, whilst also supporting conventional classroom and computer-based learning.

When compared to more traditional forms of training this delivers:

  • Improved productivity offering training from a broader range of locations including remote sites.
  • Reduction of training time​.
  • Improved information retention. ​
  • Significant return on investment.

The impact

Creating a safe, standalone or integrated training platform that gives highly realistic visual preparation for technicians; preparing them for work on complex engineering procedures on real aircraft.
