RAMPVR Virtual Reality Training

RAMPVRTM is the latest “plug-and-play” virtual reality training solution for ground operations.

RAMPVRTM combines high-spec virtual reality hardware and software with IATA training for ground operations professionals. Complement theoretical knowledge with effective practical training in a very realistic environment, without disrupting active operations on the ramp.

The “flight simulator” for ground ops​

RAMPVRTM complies fully with the standards of the Airport Handling Manual​ and the IATA Ground Operations Manual.

Typical ground ops training challenges avoided​

RAMPVRTM accurately replicates the ramp environment and avoids the typical challenges of ground ops training:

  • Airside can be a dangerous and noisy training environment
  • Training cannot be performed at night or during adverse weather conditions
  • Time available for training is limited due to operational restrictions and aircraft availability
  • Airside access requires rigorous background checks for trainees
  • Abnormal scenarios are difficult to replicate in live operations

Distinctive features

Unlike “live” training, RAMPVRTM allows you to:

  • Generate a variety of scenarios or aircraft turnaround inspections featuring damage or foreign object ​debris to enhance training
  • Simulate day and night operations as well as adverse weather conditions
  • Pause and review “operations” so details can be checked or explained
  • Access notes, forms and other reference material in real time
  • Record user performance for review and future reference

RAMPVRTM features:

  • A “plug-and-play” system with an intuitive user interface
  • No special infrastructure required, indoor open space (ideally 3x3 meters)
  • Easy and quick change-over from one trainee to the next

RAMPVRTM is available in a variety of flexible training options:

  • At designated IATA Training Centers worldwide
  • At your premises with IATA in-company training
