Pilots, maintenance technicians, students and professionals from the aerospace industry have all gathered at the prestigious Estrel Hotel in Berlin over the past two days for the European Airline Training Symposium. Amongst the many state-of-the-art training solutions on show during the exhibition was Barco/projectiondesign’s portfolio of aircraft simulation and training solutions.
Europe’s leading training event
As the major airline training event in Europe, EATS comprises a series of high-level conferences as well as an exhibition. This year’s edition had a conference theme on pilot training and a new dedicated cabin crew training program. Key topics under discussion included the fast-evolving regulatory environments, human performance and training issues, new simulation technologies, etc. The EATS Exhibition featured over 50 exhibitors, which showcased their advanced training aids and other related aviation maintenance technologies.
Complementing the very best visual display systems
Barco/projectiondesign shared a booth with RSI Visual Systems and Quadrant Simulation Systems − leaders in the field of advanced visualization solutions, environments and training services for commercial and military full flight simulators. Visitors discovered how the three partners together provide the industry’s Lowest Total Cost of Ownership in commercial flight training, whilst at the same time exceeding the “Level D” Full-Flight-Simulator Visual System Regulatory Requirements. On show was projectiondesign’s FL35 wqxga ReaLED™ projector, which ensures a low TCO, 4.1 Megapixels near eye-limiting resolution, double brightness and 100,000 hours of typical service life, making it the most competent projector for visual display systems in “Level D” training. With the projector integrated in RSI’s XT4 Image Generator and Quadrant’s NUQLEUS touch screen visual system feature control, visitors saw examples of takeoff, circling, landing and other standard training scenarios in various weather and lighting conditions over Atlanta Airport.
The EATS conference was a perfect opportunity for Barco/projectiondesign to interact with experts who set great store by the latest in pilot training and simulation.
