Beyond the manual: VR training on aircraft maintenance

One of the challenges of training is that, until recently, the only viable way to practice has been using real aircraft, where trainees pass their examinations by performing repairs and maintenance under the watchful eye of an experienced instructor. While effective, this portion of the training can be costly and dangerous—costly due to the expense of access to aircraft and materials, and dangerous due to the trainee’s inexperience. A newbie with only classroom training, unfamiliar with the physical aspects of the work, could potentially waste materials or injure others, and could even completely ruin an airplane.
