CASL is very pleased to announce that the Real Virtuality for Aircraft Inspection (ReVAI), a virtual reality (VR) training system developed by CASL and the University of Hong Kong (HKU) with the HKSAR Government Innovation and Technology Fund by Logistics and Supply Chain MultiTech R&D Centre, has received the Silver Prize of the 47th International Exhibition of Inventions Geneva in mid-April this year.
The International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva is the biggest event of its kind in the world for showcasing novelties and inventions. The Silver Prize serves as a global recognition for CASL and HKU’s dedicated efforts into developing “VR Training Platform for Aircraft Maintenance Inspection”, which truly breaks through the traditional mode of aircraft inspection training.
Featuring a realistic and immersive apron environment, the newly developed VR Training Platform makes it possible for trainees to carry out essential aircraft walk-around inspection in a virtual context.
Dr. Angus Cheung, CASL’s Chief Executive Officer revealed, “Our innovative VR Training System fully resolves the limitations of external factors such as adverse weather conditions, noisy environment, availability of aircraft as well as busy ramp traffic that obstructed training.”
“The award by The International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva fully affirms CASL’s endeavours of utilising latest technologies for the betterment of the aviation industry.”
In manifestation of CASL’s core value of “Improvement on Continuous Basis”, CASL will strive to put forward innovative solutions to optimise its operations and further enhance its service quality. In addition, receiving such an international recognition marks a milestone and serves as an encouragement for the Company to pursue excellence in future.
