Aircraft Turnaround Coordination and Loading Supervision with RampVR (Classroom, 4 days)
Did you know that in the past 4 years, 89 participants from 28 countries have taken this course with IATA?
Lead your ramp team in the consistent servicing and turnaround of multiple aircraft types. Learn the essential technical procedures for aircraft handling and loading to optimize the use of ground service equipment and manpower. In this 4-day course you will also learn how to build a safety culture and ensure consistent on-time performance (OTP). Included in this course is RampVR™, the latest “plug-and-play” virtual reality training solution for ground operations.
RampVR™ is designed for ground operations professionals, and combines high-spec virtual reality hardware and software with IATA training. RampVR™ complements the theoretical knowledge with effective practical training in a very realistic environment, without disrupting active operations on the ramp. It allows you to generate a variety of scenarios or aircraft turnaround inspections featuring operational issues, damage or foreign object debris to enhance training. It also simulates day and night operations as well as adverse weather conditions and includes pause and review “operations” so details can be checked or explained.
This classroom course provides 4 days (34 hours) of instruction delivered by an official IATA Instructor.
