Raytheon has launched a fully immersive virtual reality variant of its portable V-22 Osprey aircraft trainer.

The Aircraft Functional V-22 Trainer-Virtual Reality was unveiled at the ongoing I/ITSEC event in the US.

The solution is designed to accommodate the ‘hyper-realistic’ training needs of all experience levels.

It can be used for training early career aviation maintenance students and to support the ongoing training needs of experienced personnel.

Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services director Wendell Bradshaw said: “The system is intuitive and realistic, making the training sessions more productive and meaningful. Adding the virtual reality element further increases the training’s realism and the students’ mission readiness.”

Aircraft Functional V-22 Trainer-Virtual Reality provides students with access to integrated interactive electronic technical manuals.
