A Turn to Simulation: Training Simulators Continue to Evolve

Since aircraft deicing is a weather-driven event, operators are allowed little practical training before being tested on the deicing pad. The continuing evolution of deicing simulation technology is presenting operators with another training option. Simulation allows familiarization with equipment and the deicing process without real-time dangers; reduces costs associated with running equipment for training; and allows team dynamics to develop. Companies involved in training simulation include Global Ground Support LLC; KaTron, Inc.; MPRI: gForce Products Division; and Servisair.
