Working at

FlyPort is developing a VR-based training platform for professional pilots to help airlines and flight schools get a more adaptable, sustainable and cost efficient way to educate their pilots. All with the use of our portable and immersive FlyPort VR-headset. FlyPort is bridging the gap between theory and practise in professional flight training through VR. Today’s way of training pilots is neither flexible nor conducive to effective learning, which causes pilots not to be as prepared for practical work as they should, and could be. Neither is the way we train pilots today cost efficient or adapted to a more sustainable and environmental friendly aviation industry. With the use of our portable FlyPort VR-headset, our product delivers an immersive training experience more conductive to efficient learning, accessible to the pilot anywhere, anytime and as many times as he or she wants. Not only does this improve safety, but by reducing the number of failed simulator sessions and retakes, airlines and flight schools can vastly cut their training costs while maintaining a high safety standard.
