Air France Industries KLM Engineering & Maintenance and Airbus form partnership for virtual engine run-up maintenance training

AFIKLMEM Airbus A320 Engine Runup

Airbus and AFI KLM E&M have agreed a technical and commercial partnership to co-develop and manage a virtual engine run-up A320 maintenance PC-based training solution. Applicable to all A320 engine types, it will use high definition immersive 3D simulation and will be based on real operational scenarios and in-service aircraft maintenance procedures. The solution will offer a flexible alternative solution to training sessions performed on simulators, facilitating course scheduling and localisation, be it in training centres, in outstations or at the customer’s base. With the new solution, technicians and mechanics requiring to be trained and qualified to perform engine-run-up tests, will be able to visualize an A320 cockpit in an immersive 3D environment and carry out the simulated run-up test operations. The software allows the monitoring of three PC stations: one for the instructor to control the progress of the training performed by the trainees plus one for each trainee (captain & officer) each equipped with a 3D headset. AFI KLM E&M and Airbus will start using it in their own maintenance training centres before end of 2019, followed by partners’ networks.
