The US Air Force looks to Specular Theory to develop immersive training solutions for the USAF Pilot Training Next 2.0 program to teach T-6 Formation Flying for undergraduate pilot training.
By using emerging technology combined with the new standards for pilot training, the 97th OG at Altus AFB has partnered with Specular Theory to train the nation's next generation of C-17 Globemaster III and KC-135 Stratotanker aircrew.
"With VR/AR, Pilot Training Next students are jumping right into the areas that are most interesting to them in that moment, which are typically the most difficult to learn. They start learning themselves, filling in all the blanks that get them there. In certain areas which have traditionally taken 6 months to learn, our students are now doing Day 1"
LT COL ERIC FRAHM, 19th AF, USAF
"Specular Theory has been a very adaptive and fruitful partner for PTN and their output is valued by our students and instructors."
ROBERT PAUL “SLEW VICARS IV“, LEAD FOR PILOT TRAINING NEXT, USAF
"Their attention to detail, work ethic, and ability to download our knowledge into an interactive tool is unmatched. I look forward to seeing what else they come up with!"
CHRISTINE “SWITCH” DURHAM, CAPTAIN, USAF
"Specular Theory changes the game when it comes to learning. I wish I had this when I was learning to fly!"
CALOGERI “CHEETAH” SAN FILIPPO, INSTRUCTOR PILOT, USAF
"Today’s technology is allowing us to deliver new content and highly effective instructional techniques, access, and repetitions of high quality virtual reality flying environment which is producing higher quality flying skill-sets in the air at a much faster pace."
