Spatial’s survey indicates cabin crew training industry ready for next generation technologies

Dubai, UAE. Spatial, the world’s leading provider of cabin crew training simulators, has announced that its recent global survey indicates that the cabin crew training industry is ready for next generation technologies.

During July, Spatial invited airline cabin crew training professionals to take part in its survey to better understand future training requirements. The response was overwhelming with crew training instructors, simulator engineers and other professionals from airlines all over the world keen to voice their opinion.

The results clearly show that there is significant interest in next generation technologies with the primary objectives being to increase training realism levels and understanding amongst cabin crew trainees as well as reduce training times. Respondents believe that Augmented Reality (AR) technologies represent the most promise to meet their future training requirements such as cabin familiarisation, door operations and emergency procedures.

Mr Phathaiphong Inthasotthi was the lucky recipient of an Apple iPad which all survey respondents had the opportunity to win.

Marc Van den Broucque, Managing Director at Spatial said:

“We were delighted by the response to our survey which was an industry first to gauge the future training requirements of cabin crew. The feedback we received from industry professionals was highly valuable and we are already working on designing our next generation of training devices so that the world’s airlines can continue to deliver the highest possible levels of cabin crew training.”
