Implementing integrated LVC flight training: Challenges and opportunities

This exclusive panel discussion facilitated by Air Marshal (Ret) Sir Christopher Harper will address some of the challenges of LVC flight training including:

  • LVC in mixed inventories of new and legacy platforms
  • Linking synthetic mission training systems and networking simulators to enable multi-entry and multi-location training exercises
  • Developing common interfaces between simulators and trainers
  • Improving spatial awareness of synthetic training 

Integrated and interoperable synthetic training: Advantages, opportunities, challenges

Synthetic training has an enormous potential in military flight training, enabling allied and partner nations to train together as a coalition at low cost in complex and constructed scenarios. The virtual environment could help create international teams prior to an operation, improving their interoperability and increasing their efficiency.

Ahead of the Military Flight Training 2018, we discussed with LtGen (ret.) Anthony J. Rock, former Inspector General of the U.S. Air Force and Chairman for MFT 2018, about high-fidelity simulation and whether it truly represents an opportunity to leap ahead in military flight training.
