Vertex Solutions and Republic Airways' LIFT Academy Announce Partnership
Vertex Solutions' XR Flight Simulators will be integrated with LIFT's pilot training program
By: Vertex Solutions
LIFT Academy's innovative spirit and accelerated flight training approach are a perfect match for the integration of Vertex Solutions' ITDs and simulator support services. Proven by the US Department of Defense (DoD), Vertex ITDs have shown a 40% decrease in training time, a 70% decrease in time to solo, and a 15% increase in performance—
" LIFT Academy has been a technology leader in the commercial pilot training industry from day one," shared Ed Bagden, Director of Operations and Academic Programs at LIFT Academy. "We are proud to work with Vertex Solutions, bringing technologies demonstrated to drive success by the United States military to our academy and students."
For both DoD and commercial aviation, the high cost and limited availability of current Flight Training Devices (FTDs) and Full Flight Simulators (FFSs) have created barriers to achieving the number of pilots industry demands. The lightweight, small-footprint Vertex ITD improves student access by allowing a more widely spread distribution of devices, and its truly immersive learning environment prepares pilots for safer, more efficient aircraft evaluations. The use of Vertex ITDs in USAF undergraduate pilot training has shown up to a 70% decrease in the time it takes students to get to their first solo flight. Not only that, students retain information at a much higher rate, decreasing error rates during initial check rides, significantly increasing the training value of those flights.
The XR ITD developed by Vertex Solutions, combined with LIFT Academy's innovative, cutting-edge flight training program, will become the standard in commercial aviation training.
"Vertex Solutions' partnership with LIFT Academy is our next step toward revolutionizing the aviation training industry. We are excited for the opportunity to transfer training performance improvements we demonstrated in the US Air Force and Navy to a commercial airline. Investment by commercial aviation will further build military confidence in XR pilot training technology, creating a symbiotic, dual-use ecosystem. "
