Virtual Reality solution to train maintenance crews

Aviation Australia and L3Harris Technologies have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to integrate L3Harris’ new Web and Virtual Reality Maintenance Trainer (VRMT) into aircraft technician training programs. As the first VRMT customer, Aviation Australia will be able to deliver more flexible training to students in any location with a computer and Internet access.

The VRMT extends the training power of L3Harris’ Virtual Maintenance Trainer (VMT) directly to students’ personal computers. The VRMT simulates the experience of maintaining fully-functional flight decks during program certification, allowing the students to virtually navigate equipment bays, view and remove components in real-time and practice troubleshooting procedures. The VRMT headsets enable students to practice anytime and anywhere at their own pace. In the event of any pandemic-related lockdowns, training will not be disrupted.
