The aviation industry has seen technological advancements over the last few decades. There is no doubt that the digital wave has made it possible to embrace new technologies rather quickly, and offer endless possibilities.
A recent report by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) called “Future of the Airline Industry 2035”, identified various technologies such as metaverse, blockchain, web 3.0, virtual reality, and augmented reality, among others, that will transform flying for good. Virtual reality in Aviation training helps learners get experience of complex situations without posing a risk to their lives.
Aircraft manufacturers are utilizing the metaverse; Airbus and Boeing are looking forward to creating digital replicas of aircraft to use to run tests and simulations. This way, they need not accumulate flight hours on a physical trial aircraft to gather data and results, and can hence save costs and eliminate safety risks to the test crew. Also, due to these features, metaverse is utilized in aerospace and defense.
