SPATIAL DISORIENTATION
Training Systems

ETC's suite of spatial disorientation trainers optimize the elements of simulation fidelity including cockpit, visuals, flight model, and vestibular stimulation through continuous motion cueing to provide an authentic learning environment. Coping and recovery skills are learned by pilots in an interactive experience to optimize training transfer to the aircraft. The result is a safer pilot with advanced risk management skills; a must for today's flight environment.

While Sheppard is the first to receive one, eventually each undergraduate pilot training base and Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph, Texas, will have one of the trainers by January 2016. At that point, all pilot training syllabi will include this valuable training for recognition and recovery from the dangers of spatial disorientation.
