The virtual reality (VR) simulator supplier approved by significant aviation regulators, Loft Dynamics AG (formerly VRM Switzerland), has entered into a partnership with Air Greenland to bring its VR training simulator to the region.
The collaboration represents a new step in Loft Dynamics’ mission to improve access to flight training, even in the most remote locations. The partnership makes VR flight training technology domestically accessible for Air Greenland for the first time.
Air Greenland will run a Loft Dynamics Airbus H125 VR training simulator from its headquarters in Nuuk. Since receiving its FTD Level 3 Flight Simulation Training Device (FSTD) qualification in May 2022, Loft Dynamics has acquired seven VR training devices with EASA authorization.
According to Loft Dynamics, Air Greenland can improve flight safety, carry out operator and license checks, provide special operations practice necessary for navigating the remote area safely, and lessen environmental impacts by purchasing the simulator.
Air Greenland operates a fleet of helicopters, including the Airbus H155 and H225, for which travel to specific international training facilities with full-flight simulators was previously necessary. With the Loft Dynamics simulator’s small size (one-tenth that of conventional simulators) and lower operational cost (roughly one-twentieth that of traditional simulators), safe and accurate flight training technology is now more scalable and accessible, regardless of how remote the location is.
Air Greenland’s ‘spring refresher’ training, which includes enhanced procedure and safety training and operator and license proficiency checks, will largely be carried out using Loft’s simulator. As a result, their crew will have access to the most thorough and practical training opportunities.
“The Loft Dynamics VR simulator is a great tool for significantly enhancing the training experience and ensuring optimal flight safety,” said Brian Jørgensen, Head of Training at Air Greenland. “It’s efficient, economically beneficial, easy to install, and does not take up much space.”
