Aircraft Marshalling and Ramp Hand Signals with RampVR
Learn the fixed wing aircraft marshaling and ramp hand signals based on the IATA Standards in the Airport Handling Manual (AHM) and IATA Ground Handling Manual (IGOM). In this 1-day course you will also learn the principles of ramp communications between the ground and cockpit crew. Participants will be able to perform fully their practical training with the use of RampVR™, the latest virtual reality training solution for ground operations.
RampVR™ is designed for ground operations professionals, and combines high-spec virtual reality hardware and software with IATA training. RampVR™ complements the theoretical knowledge with effective practical training in a very realistic environment, without disrupting active operations on the ramp. It allows you to generate a variety of scenarios on narrow body and wide body aircraft marshalling. It also simulates day and night operations as well as adverse weather conditions and includes pause and review “operations” so details can be checked or explained.
This course is available at IATA Training Centers, Regional Training Partner locations, and on-demand as in-company training.
