Air Marshalling Virtual Trainer
By Heartwood & Atlantis Systems Eduplus
Skills and Ideas Taught: Air Marshalling Virtual Trainer trains players on the use of proper aviation hand signal communications.
Goal or Challenge: Players must follow the instructions of an on-screen instructor to produce the correct hand signals (detected by Microsoft Kinect motion sensing technology) to guide pilots and personnel during take-off and taxi.
Primary Audience: Aircraft Marshalling Trainees – in the Navy, Air Force, and Commercial Aviation.
Assessment Approach: Players are allowed to advance to the next signal training only if they accurately repeat the proper gestures.
Description: Aircraft Marshalling requires the use of hand signals to communicate with and direct pilots and personnel during take-off and taxi. To train for this skill-set, a student needs to physically perform the hand/arm signals and an instructor corrects or approves them instantly. As the game progresses, the trainee is exposed to a variety of virtual scenarios that test their marshalling skills.
