Rotorcraft Report: Boeing, Bell Update V-22 Virtual Reality Trainer
Along with its partner in the project, Bell Helicopter, Boeing has secured a U.S. Navy contract to upgrade the cabin part task trainer (CPTT) for the CV-22 tiltrotor with various modifications. Among the updates is an aircrew flight simulation (AFS), which fuses video images with virtual reality.
The updated trainer, which is used to teach flight engineers, will be based at the U.S. Air Force Special Operations Command 58th Training Squadron’s facility at Kirtland Air Force Base in Albuquerque, N.M.
