Virtual maintenance trainer Airbus A320

Swiss AviationTraining’s Airbus A320 Virtual Maintenance Trainer is a comprehensive and cost-effective solution for your A320 maintenance training needs.

With its accurate simulation of the aircraft’s actual equipment, systems and component locations, the Virtual Maintenance Trainer (VMT) offers a safe yet highly realistic simulated training environment for aircraft technicians to learn A320 maintenance and troubleshooting procedures.

The VMT provides an ideal platform for putting training theory into practice using the effective «learning by doing» methodology. And, with its vast range of functions, features, options and scenarios, it offers maximum flexibility to make the best possible use of the training time available.

The VMT contains a complete interactive simulation of the aircraft systems and avionics, plus the ground equipment needed to perform the maintenance tasks. It can replicate up to 150 corrective and preventive maintenance tasks across the aircraft systems. It is a single source of technical information that can fulfil different training needs and so supports training standardization across technical subjects.

Target Audience

The VMT provides students with an accurate, easy to use and cost-effective training solution that is particularly suitable for training technicians with EASA Part 66 Aircraft Maintenance Licences (AML) and electro-avionics maintenance engineers. It is also a highly effective tool to aid familiarization with, and understanding of, the aircraft systems (e.g. hydraulic, ECS, flight controls, transmissions, etc.) and the mechanical structure.

Key Points

  • Maintenance training instructors can use the VMT to set up and activate emulated fault conditions. Students can then investigate and solve the emulated fault conditions, in a safe environment, with no need to conduct low-value tasks such as the release of fasteners to open panels. This focuses training time and effort on the most important and useful activities.
  • The 3D graphics provide students with a learning environment they can immerse themselves in, thereby accelerating their comprehension of complex equipment and maintenance tasks, while increasing knowledge retention. The instructors keep track of students’ progress and can monitor their weak areas for potential intervention. The students learn from their mistakes safely by working through unlimited “play and practice” sessions.
  • The VMT provides instant feedback and remediation advice to students if they make mistakes. This facilitates the achievement of the required knowledge and skill levels necessary for safe and effective maintenance operations.
  • The VMT reduces training costs because it removes the need for a large inventory of equipment replicas used in traditional training that are more expensive to procure, operate and maintain.
  • The VMT’s Windows (R) style interface is intuitive and does not need special training to initiate new students. Its intuitive design allows students to explore detailed representations of the aircraft systems and components and the way they interrelate.
