Wizz Air Using VR for Pilot Training

Innovation

Wizz Air is striving to be the first to use technology controlled by virtual reality in its pilot training, the airline said in a press release.

According to the announcement, Wizz Air is using the cloud-based Mobile Airbus Training experience (MATe) Suite package developed by Airbus and the Virtual Procedure Trainer (VPT) technology in its pilot training.

MATe Suite is a cloud-based service platform that includes e-training and exams tailored to various pilot categories. VPT's innovative software trains the students with the help of a virtual cockpit, giving them the opportunity to become thoroughly familiar with Airbus aircraft and to practice the most important operations at a skill level.

The two new training solutions - the introduction of which was also approved by the Civil Aviation Supervisory Authority Department - provide an opportunity to acquire even more comprehensive knowledge in the Wizz Air training center and support the pilots participating in the type training course.
