Air Zermatt has announced it has selected VRM Switzerland as its supplier for a training solution based on virtual reality (VR) technology, the company said.
The simulator´s visual system provides 3D vision with unprecedented resolution. This allows discerning pilots to effectively train for difficult scenarios on mountain landing sites, with bright sunshine and under various snow conditions such as white outs. The simulator can also be used for other scenarios, such as external load training (HESLO), autorotation and vortex recovery, using a validated flight data model.
The small environmental footprint and the cost-effective price were important criteria for Air Zermatt when it selected VRM Switzerland´s simulator. In the long run, it will enable Air Zermatt to conduct more in-house training, allowing it to reduce the travel costs and time involved in traveling to other training centers. All this while doing something good for the environment in Zermatt.
