CAE announced today at the Farnborough International Air Show 2022, the launch of its newest advancement in pilot training, the CAE 700MXR Flight Simulator. Initially targeted to the eVTOL market, the CAE 700MXR the company says will revolutionize flight training for complex urban settings with a compact mini-motion platform and 360⁰ field of view visuals that deliver high-fidelity, physics-based simulation tailored to single-pilot operations.
In a press release the company goes on to say “CAE’s next-generation Immersive synthetic out-the-window environment combined with a mixed reality head mounted display and real cockpit controls and instrumentation, will enable pilots to take advantage of enhanced 3D perception and AI-based digital capabilities to fully engage in realistic, low-level flying scenarios.
“The CAE 700MXR’s ultra-realistic simulation bridges the gap between the physical and virtual worlds to deliver an unrivalled training experience for future eVTOL pilots,” said Nick Leontidis, CAE’s Civil Group President. “CAE is leading the way, developing advanced technologies and setting the training standard for the eVTOL market, and our innovative approach will ensure faster, more efficient training for pilots.”
As previously announced, Volocopter and CAE are working together on developing, certifying and deploying a pilot training program for operating Volocopter’s electric air taxi leveraging mixed reality, in support of the launch of Volocopter’s anticipated urban air mobility (UAM) services for the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Paris, France.
