Airport Briefing

Complying with the aerodrome competency qualification requirements, it enhances the ability of the crew to identify operational black holes, manage obvious and subtle threats and creates a clear mental model of the environment before getting airborne.

It’s an application that eliminates the surprises of operating to a new airfield or a route that the pilot has never flown before. Using this robust 3D software, the users will experience a visual treat covering every facet of their next flight, empowering their airmanship and decision making by enhancing situational awareness and knowledge.

Airport briefing
As the acquisition and interpretation of information is highly influenced by expectations, pre-flight briefing is crucial. The idea behind intensive pre-flight briefings is to use multi-media tools to help pilots develop a clear picture of their flight. By being able to ‘fly-through’ the flight in advance, pilots can develop a better mental model of the environment. – Dr. Mica Endsley

Modular Design

For airlines and airplane operators, Airport Briefing can be highly customized to various operational needs. Through its modular design, from a Situational Awareness tool it can be easily transformed into a comprehensive route and aerodrome manual that is no longer in text, but in a 3-dimensional virtual space.
