World Aviation Training Summit 2024

Last week we wrapped our first-ever World Aviation Training Summit.

Over four days, more than 70 people from across the aviation ecosystem—government officials, airlines, operators, manufacturers, pilots, and aviation enthusiasts—had the chance to experience our virtual reality H125 flight training simulator. We engaged in dynamic conversations with a diverse group of individuals equally passionate about training innovations. We also received overwhelmingly positive feedback, particularly regarding the realism we’re able to achieve with our VR simulators.

I saw a wide array of XR applications at the show, which reflect the dynamism and innovation within this sector. The interest in our Simulator was overwhelmingly high, confirming that our advanced technology and user-centric approach are on the right track. We are proud to be at the forefront of this exciting industry and look forward to further enhancing our leading position in VR Simulation.

Our scenario-based training features and proprietary human pose tracking system consistently captured attendees' interest. The ability to safely practice autorotations, perform skyscraper landings on any building in Los Angeles, or navigate IMC conditions in the Alps showcased the versatility of our training scenarios to meet the unique needs of pilots and operators and, in turn, make training more efficient. Attendees experienced firsthand the precision of their body movements within the virtual environment, such as their avatar’s hand reaching for a specific button in real-time, accompanied by the immediate corresponding force feedback of the button.

Our CEO, Fabi Riesen, spoke during the “XR Goes Mainstream” session, where he and other industry professionals discussed the powerful applications of extended reality technologies in pilot training. They highlighted the superior quality of virtual reality for pilot training and presented innovative methods to safely and efficiently train the next generation of qualified pilots.

A big thank you and congratulations to the WATS organizers for hosting a fantastic event.

Our experience at WATS was exceptional as it was our first time exhibiting. We engaged in insightful conversations with hundreds of aviation experts from around the world. Over 70 people flew our Airbus-approved device and praised our technology. These aviation professionals foresee significant training benefits in the fixed-wing commercial aviation sector and are excited to see future Loft Dynamics products. When the pilots tried out our simulator it often happened, that they did not realize the ability to manipulate cockpit elements intuitively as it felt that natural. This is unique for VR applications as usually disturbing trackers are required to do so in VR.

Tablet und Full Replica Cockpit

The Virtual Reality Cockpit is integrated on the Motion Platform and consists of a pilot seat, belts and flight controls that the pilot would use in a real aircraft.


Loft Dynamics is adding different cities and airport sceneries of the United States to the scenario portfolio. In addition to the proven high-resolution landscapes, heliports, and airports of Switzerland, we now offer selected US locations with photorealistic 3D buildings and airports.

Night Flying

The VR technology is predestined to simulate night sceneries. Lights of helipads, airport lighting and the illumination of specific buildings and towns enable to execute night flight training. Loft Dynamic simulates the helicopter lights like rotating beacon and strobe lights realistically.
