The 173rd fighter wing uses off-the-shelf technology to assist student pilots

Many interested F-15 eagle pilots reach the 173rd fighter wing to work through the most challenging B-course in the Air Force.

The only F-15C school in the Kingley Field, located in Klamat Alls Te, Ore, requires significant investment in students who successfully navigate the curriculum and enter the fighter jet.

For the teacher cadre, developing these future pilots requires constant monitoring of the role of technology in shaping new ships.

Lt. Col. Julius Romastata is an F-15 instructor pilot, a commercial airline pilot, and does not wear a military uniform. He explains that the pilots get ready for a mission by imagining the process from start to finish.

“We are all ‘seat-flies’. It is the most important thing we can do to prepare for any mission.

He then goes on to say that “flying in a chair” is a process of using one’s mind to prepare oneself by looking at each step from taxi to airport. Although this visual process is important, it has its own shortcomings, among which are visual inaccuracies, a better estimate of what this situation is like.

For example, it is often unrealistic to expect a student to approach a tanker plane for the first time.

Romasta describes this painting from both military and civilian training. It is introducing a new device for student pilots on the wing, which is called an improved seat. With a standard laptop computer, joystick, throttle control and some virtual reality glasses available in electronics or gaming stores, each student can fly simulated missions from their desk or home.

When I say ‘flying a chair’, it means you can usually imagine how your mission is going. ” When you control the plane for yourself, you can now actually fly the mission and try it out.

He said students can practice flying combat and formation by connecting the two computers together and flying together with another student after opening the laptop and giving them VR glasses.

“VR training is a great tool for looking at visual imagery while learning basic combat maneuvers,” said Lt. Martin Sipe, student pilot. “Learning the concepts and seeing what Jet looks like right away is great to prepare for that battle.

As the student pilots rank, off-the-shelf VR glasses take off from the starting taxi for the mission above the territory and see Kingsland Plane flying. Romestanta did this by capturing video during most of his training sessions.

He asked the Air Force Command to review its footage and clean the product to ensure that the VR application is suitable for home use.

This is the perfect use of this VR technology to show people where to go, what it looks like and how long it takes.

Student pilots also rely on state-of-the-art simulations, which provide a completely immersive experience, but this facility is not out of date.

“My first task was to deliver what the students had to take home,” Romasata said.

This improved chair flight does not replace the student’s useful time, but it does add another layer. A combination of low cost and practical training is a layer of housing for future classrooms.
