FOUNDRY 45s – S01E06 – Brandon Carson from Delta Air Lines

Welcome to Foundry 45s, where we give you 45 seconds of insight from training leaders around the world. Today we have Brandon Carson from Delta Air Lines. Brandon, where do you see training organizations getting the most value out of deploying VR?

Hi Dave, thanks. It’s great to be here. When we look at VR, we’re looking at, when is the training condition best for this type of immersive experience? When it’s hard to replicate, when it’s expensive to recreate, and when it’s unsafe. It’s common that in the airline space, we have those three conditions one or the other, quite frequently. So we’re going to be looking at VR as a key component in our strategy because it’s rare that we get an airplane we can train on that’s just reserved for training purposes, for example. So it’s hard to replicate a lot of the situations around and in an aircraft, obviously, it would be expensive. So VR will be a key strategic choice for us when trying to build out immersive experiences that are as authentic as possible.
