Founded originally in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam; VRnam is a privately funded technology project set up primarily to enable the use of the newest training methods in flight training. With professional grade flight simulators costing between €10 to €20 million, being in near-24hr use year-around and very much expensive to house, man, operate and utilize; VRnam’s aim is to create a training environment that can be operated in a normal office or home with minimal instruction and oversight for many hours at very minimal cost.
Our Project will have two major stages:
The first will be the release of a non-flying, procedural, training environment. It will explain, guide and drill procedures together with trainee professional pilots step by step inside a full fidelity cockpit.
The second will aim to integrate OEM simulation grade data for use as an ICAO-certified simulation device replacement.
We will also integrate a number of key features including remote multi-user support, customised SOP’s, instructor matchmaking, etc.
This technology will firstly be exploited on the Airbus A320 airliner family and then rolled out on further aircraft types in future. We are now in mid-production for the Airbus A320 segment of our project and will have more to show in the coming months.
We are under acceleration with Airbus BizLab in Toulouse.
