Augmented Reality / Virtual Reality based Sortie Preparation Aid for Helicopter Pilots


Virtual Reality technology should be employed to train aviators in flight procedures on ground. Army helicopter pilots need in various regular training procedures related to flying Actual Flying of use of simulators flight can meet their training requirements. However, with the prohibitive cost of actual flying and very Iimited access to flight simulators there is a need for a cost-effective means to train the pilots. 

Aviators need to practice flight procedures on ground to optimize the learning value of the live sortie missions flown by them. Employment of Virtual Reality technology will enhance the level of preparedness prior to undertaking a live sortie msn. Virtual Reality technology can also be employed for simulating bad weather conditions as well as for practicing flythroughs in the trn expected during the sortie.
