VRGINEERS DONATES A VIRTUAL REALITY PILOT TRAINER TO UKRAINE FOR AID AND SOLIDARITY

Posted by Admin

For decades now there has been a push to modernize the current training methods, driven in part by the costs of altering and maintaining large, dome simulators; the inability to keep training devices up to date as aircraft in the field and corresponding software update faster than training simulators; and an overall lack of expert training professionals.  Virtual and mixed reality technologies can significantly enhance the process of pilot transformation from eastern platforms such as Migs and Suchoj to western platforms such as Lockheed Martin F-16, or F-35, Airbus Eurofighters, Dassault Rafales, and Saab Gripens, as well as for multiple helicopters.

NTSB Final Report: McKinney, Texas

Posted by Admin

The pilot reported that he drove from his home to the airport not expecting to fly the helicopter due to high winds, however, after arrival at the hangar the winds were lighter than the forecast winds, so he conducted a preflight for a local flight. As the pilot raised the collective for takeoff and the helicopter climbed into an initial hover, the helicopter rolled to the left. The pilot tried to counter the roll but was unable because the cyclic control lock was still in place. The helicopter continued to roll left and impacted the ramp and a post impact fire ensued. The pilot successfully egressed the helicopter but suffered serious burn injuries. The helicopter sustained substantial damage to the main rotor system and the cabin. The pilot reported that there were no preaccident mechanical malfunctions or failures that would have precluded normal operation.
