A320 pilot training breakthrough

Posted 20 July 2017 · Add Comment

Pilots and students can now access on line professional training videos covering over 60 different procedures for the A320.

These have been produced using state of the art 3D rendering techniques combined with actual video footage of simulator exercises. The user is guided through each procedure on a visual basis with clear voiceover explanations at every step of the way. The videos are available to be streamed 24/7 and can be accessed by most smartphones, tablets or laptops with internet access from the company website https://v-prep.com/.

Captain James Feeney and the man behind the new approach said: “As a Training Captain I was frustrated by the lack of modern training material outside the simulator or classroom environment and the reliance on old-fashioned paper manuals.

“I observed pilots starting to use free online material that was often out of date, unqualified and in many cases erroneous

“ We now have a professional on-line product available that is easy to use and understand, and can be conveniently accessed from most places in the world. We have already had enormous interest in what we are doing from both organisations and individuals - who see the clear benefits of adopting this new approach.”

Senior Captain Keith Longden added: “This is a professional product for professional pilots and is designed around the way the A320 is actually flown. We have been scrupulous with quality control and are proud of having designed a range of training aides that will save pilots and airlines time and money whilst improving the overall level of training by making complex procedures easier to learn. Our product is unique – it is technically robust, accurate and up to date.”
