09 Dec Effects of virtual reality on learning aircraft procedures
skill-UP, represented by ENAC, was present at Journée scientifique autour des environnements de simulation numérique et leurs apports à la Pédagogie universitaire, for a poster presentation!
ENAC presented the poster under the topic “EFFETS DE LA RÉALITÉ VIRTUELLE SUR L’APPRENTISSAGE DES PROCÉDURES AVION” / “EFFECTS OF VIRTUAL REALITY ON LEARNING AIRCRAFT PROCEDURES”.
The poster resulted, in part, from the work done in skill-UP project, in particular within the developement of initial and continuing training programs adapted to the evolving air transport needs. As part of such work, ENAC (National School of Civil Aviation) is currently working on the design of a virtual immersive environment for learning the many airplane procedures an airline pilot should know.
ENAC defined the following hypothesis for their work: For learning airplane procedures, the spatialization of the gesture in an immersive environment during learning, through the use of virtual reality, will promote the acquisition and the retention of the sequence of actions to be memorized.
ENAC designed, developed and evaluated a Virtual Reality training application (see Figure 1) for procedures
on TB20 (civil flying club).
The results of the assessment carried out on four student pilots of ENAC show that VR enables fast and sustainable engagement for the learner in his learning task (SUS and IPQ results) while offering a level of high performance with contained mental load (NASA-TLX).
More immersive prototype (hand tracking without using joysticks and environment shared with the co-pilot) which will be assessed with a group of 20 ENAC pilot students.
