Wednesday the 24th of February 2021 VRpilot delivered and received final acceptance from Center Air Pilot Academy (CAPA) for the delivery of their virtual reality (VR) based standard operational and emergency procedure trainer VRflow for the B-737. This delivery for an approved training organization for commercial pilots marks a groundbreaking date for a new approach to pilot training.

In addition to the VRflow trainer with multicrew training capability, CAPA will as well introduce the VRpilot 360 degree video classroom viewer, VRguide, in which a class of students can be instructed in a virtual cockpit, sitting together or remotely any place in the world.  

As the first CAPA students went into the virtual B-737 cockpit, realizing the intense new dimension to training, ear to ear smiles started to spread- the benefits of VRflow were obvious. 

According to Chief Operations Manager, Anna Thorsøe: “CAPA has been educating commercial pilots for more than 30 years. To be at the leading edge of pilot training, it has been key to adopt new knowledge and technology. The introduction of Virtual reality-based training in partnership with VRpilot will bring us toward the next 30 years in the industry.”

Thor Paulli Andersen, founding partner of VRpilot expressed that: “VRpilot is grateful for the close cooperation with CAPA for the launch of the VRflow as well as the ambition to continue the close cooperation to help increase flight safety through improve quality of pilot training.”
