SecondSky is an immersive and innovative virtual pilot training system
Whether students are learning to fly commercial jets, military unmanned systems, or novel optionally manned systems, SecondSky offers a new way to get aircrew up and flying—utilizing immersive, AI-driven simulation, community-based learning, and coaching from human flight instructors who’ve come out of the most prestigious flight and test pilot schools.
Introductory material is delivered through interactive computer-based modules, delivered on the student’s schedule, via computer or tablet. Instructor and peer feedback is built into even the earliest training exposure through the SecondSky learning environment.
Traditional instructor-led training is delivered in person and while in residence at a schoolhouse—often a significant investment of resources. SecondSky replaces in-person training with all the benefits of one-on-one instruction, delivered through our learning management system.
SecondSky simulation utilizes mixed reality, instructor and air traffic interaction and updated platform-specific software to deliver a seamless flight experience to students. Traditional simulation suffers from cost-prohibitive simulation technology, software that is quickly outdated, and configurations and sims that don’t always represent today’s reality.
Actual time spent in the plane is invaluable in any flight training program. But in traditional programs, even the most basic of skills require dedicated planes, flight clearances, flight hours, fuel and instructor time. SecondSky creates a seamless cockpit experience, modeling real platforms, live air traffic control and immediate instructor and AI feedback.
IMMERSIVE VIRTUAL PILOT TRAINING ENVIRONMENT
As flight costs become prohibitive and advanced teaming options become the norm, pilots and operators will need new ways to rehearse real-world flight skills across a spectrum of scenarios. SecondSky gives pilots and operators skills that translate seamlessly from simulation to real world.
TEACHES OPTIMAL FLIGHT BEHAVIORS BASED ON IMMEDIATE FEEDBACK/COACHING
Machine learning and the real-world expertise of world-class flight instructors combine to make SecondSky the ultimate pilot training platform, allowing future pilots and operators to benefit from both.
SCENARIO-BASED SIMULATIONS FED BY MACHINE LEARNING
Machine learning and artificial intelligence have a place in flight training, and SecondSky utilizes both to recreate real-world scenarios. Training to respond optimally in simulation can differentiate good pilots and operators from the best when it’s time to fly in the real world.
LEARNING MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
Students learn best through experience, and SecondSky’s learning management system allows experience-based learning, peer communication, immediate instructor feedback and subject-matter communities to give flight students the support and structure they need to become the best.
DISTRIBUTED FLIGHT TRAINING
Utilizing a distributed flight training network with remote air traffic control and instructors interacting with students in real time allows a mixed-reality simulation that can be accessed on a student’s schedule, across an enterprise.
LIVE, VIRTUAL, CONSTRUCTIVE TRAINING
LVC has been a construct for years, but SecondSky makes it real, offering live and mixed-reality engagement that result in well-trained pilots and operators ready to fly in the real world.
