FROM THE FA A VR. Some apply the term “mixed reality” to combine traditional computer-based training with varying levels of VR. Again, this is dependent on learning analysis. Augmented Reality Augmented reality (AR) is a form of VR that uses either the real world or pictures/video of the real world with an overlay of digital information. Aircraft or automotive windshields, with projected “heads-up” digital messages is AR. For another common example, a user may wear a pair of glasses with a built-in screen. In actual maintenance, or for maintenance training, a user can ask for or automatically receive appropriate information. Another AR delivery method can be as simple as using a handheld device to obtain maintenance instruction. It is likely that the evolution of the AR display and associated data technologies will enhance the use and the culture of following technical procedures. The Plain Old Reality I drummed up this term, not only to create a catchy title but also to refer to the real world of maintenance training. Currently, most VR is expensive to create VIRTUAL REALITY for general aviation training.
