A PEEK


INTO THE FUTURE Long gone are the devices that were best suited for


developing cross check IFR skills. Through continuous development and improvement, the new generations of sim- ulators are highly sophisticated full mission training devices. Operators can prepare for any type of mission in any environment before ever attempting it live. Emergency and contingency training can be considered and mistakes can be identified and corrected. Situational awareness and crew resource management can be honed without the risk of injury or damage to anything but ego and pride. The latest materials, the fastest processors, and the cleanest (and greenest) simulators are now finding their way into training centers worldwide. If governmental oversight can keep up with the current pace of progress, the next decade should prove to be very exciting for training providers, operators and most importantly, pilots. The future outlook includes super thin curved plasma or LED screens that can be stacked to create a frameless, contiguous, out the window display with high resolution graphics and high luminance qualities. Expect to see virtual reality helmets or glasses soon. They will eventually eliminate the requirement for bulky collimated display assemblies all together. ◆
