- This is the individual/student version of VRflow -
VRflow A320 is the interactive cockpit procedure trainer for pilots. Train procedures in training scenarios that incorporate detailed aircraft behavior including sounds, instruments and cockpit layout.
VRflow incorporates numerous features for efficient learning and aircraft familiarization, ideal for type ratings. Train with or without visual help, track your errors, see your training time, train with an automatic crewmember and much more.
The following procedures are included: Preliminary Cockpit Preparation, Cockpit Preparation, Before Start, At Start Clearance, Engine Start, After Start, Taxi, Before Takeoff, Takeoff, After Takeoff, Climb, Cruise, Descent Preparation, Descent, Configuration for Approach, After Landing, Parking and Securing Aircraft.
VRflow also contains Explore Mode, where you can explore the cockpit and learn about systems.
The individual/student version does not include multi-crew functionality.
Almost there... but not quit there yet. Procedures: Generic only… without the ability to cater individual operator differences this will remain as a “hobbyist” tools. For training purpose every single step need to be very precise. Don’t get me wrong, I am not trying to ask you manage all operator’s procedure. Instead you can:
1. Add an in-app pdf reader so user can have their own FCOMs on hand
2. Make the checklists open for editing so users can edit their own version. If better, make a Library function for everyone to upload their airline specific procedures.
Awesome tool for study while overseas. I would highly suggest besides the ability to modify or create your own flows, if there was an option for using it while seated as well, maybe a reset view command so I don't need to be standing while performing the procedures
Not bad if you’re at Air-generic. This is great. Switches all have labels in explore mode to help you figure out where and what everything does. Downside they have flows, emergency procedures, that are generic. That means you can’t use your own company recommended checklist. If that’s your intent save your $$ and get the demo as a virtual “paper tiger”.
Wish you could somehow import or setup a flow or even have a user library of flows you might use that apply to your airline.
Near perfect portable cockpit trainer! Great product! Will be super helpful in my airline training. Would be great if the app continues to improve with more details as time goes on, for example simulating some of the MCDU pages and having a way to type in some waypoints/flt pln with an on-screen keyboard instead of skipping over.
Some small improvements I think will help greatly: - Being able to adjust the speed of the AI pilot hitting buttons animation. Sometimes AI hits them so fast I couldn't see what they just did. Would be nice to be able to slow down or speed up to your liking. - An option to have the info page (that displays info on the current step of the checklist) be draggable and displayed where you like it instead of attached to a controller and having to hold down a button. I find myself constantly looking down at my other controller for reference and would be nice to be able to adjust the placement. - Having a section on interactions with pushback tug driver instead of skipping over. - At all points where a box displays in front of you (like when it says "Say Departure Briefing" or "Request ATC Clearance") have it so you have to press a "Continue" button to continue. I noticed some points had a Continue button and some didn't. I think it'd be nice if they all had the button to allow time for you to practice saying a departure briefing out loud for example. As it stands now the sim auto-continues after 5 seconds I believe.
That's all I can think of off the top of my head. I will still be utilizing a flight simulator with VR to fill in the gaps in training but being able to practice cockpit flow anywhere without a desktop with the Quest 2 is great. Again great job with the product and thank you for making it available for non-commercial use for student pilots. I'm hoping for an AppLab release of the 737NG at some point and will be purchasing for sure once available.
Big potential ! First of all fun to be able to sit in a well designed cockpit and go through a ton of procedures. I personally bought it because I thought it was possible to train with a teacher or friends as the video shows. But that is not possible! And you can’t upgrade or purchase a version where this is possible so the promo video is misleading in that sense. Hopefully in a near future developers will release that option as it’s obvious it’s developed already. From that point this would take on a whole new level as one get tired after a while of pushing the same buttons in the same sequence, although there’s an exploring mode that lets you push (not all but) many buttons and gives you information (not super detailed, but if you haven’t flown as pilot you can always google this information for more details). You can’t land but you can take off. So a bit pricey for the stage it’s at but much potential for awesome flight training in a hopefully not to far away future. Would be awesome to have multiplayer, be able to watch eg. YouTube or purchase add on’s training videos inside the cockpit (like real-fishing VR) and it would be nice to be able to talk to traffic control, just a few question options that you would get wrong or right to pass exams or be valuated verbally. The explore mode could also be connected to teaching videos and in general there’s great opportunities for up-sale in game purchases. Perhaps this could also lower the app cost.
