SERA for Evidence Based Training (EBT)
Under EBT, crews must demonstrate and instructors must accurately assess eight competencies. The three most relevant to SERA are communication, situational awareness, and workload management. Add SERA to the simulation, and these three competencies become a natural element of any pilot assessment.
SERA for Line Oriented Flight Training (LOFT)
Adding SERA to the training environment introduces the complexity of real-world ATC radio comms between all the ground and air controllers and every other aircraft at the airport and in the sky. SERA represents the missing link in LOFT training; without it, the simulation is simply not realistic.
SERA for Virtual Reality Training (VR)
Virtual reality (VR) brings high-fidelity visuals to low-cost training devices. To complete the immersive experience, a realistic air traffic control (ATC) environment is essential. With SERA, students make radio calls to ground, tower, and departure AI controllers all while maintaining visual separation from other traffic in the VR headset.
SERA for Initial Pilot Training
Any pilot knows that the first radio call in a real aircraft can be a terrifying experience, so why not introduce radio fundamentals from the beginning of initial pilot training? Students who perfect their radio skills outside the aircraft have more confidence and lower failure rates than their traditional student counterparts. With SERA, students never have to train in the unrealistically barren environment so common in flight simulation today.
SERA for Mission Rehearsal Training
Mission simulation requires the highest levels of realism to properly train crews for the task at hand. Training programs put extreme levels of effort into visual, motion, and aero systems so that they are highly detailed and representative of the real world. It only makes sense to extend this attention to detail to the air traffic control (ATC) environment. Crews involved in mission training with SERA can be fully immersed by the simulation by performing airport-specific procedures and hearing regionally appropriate accents, all while surrounded by other traffic flying realistic flight plans.
