Aircraft De-icing Training Simulator The Global Ground Support Deicing Simulator is a 3D computer-based training simulation system that provides an operator with the ability to practice and take a “performance test” while performing a virtual aircraft deicing process in a 3D environment. The operator of the simulation has full control over the boom arm, cab rotation, truck location, nozzle settings, cab lights, type of plane, time of day, and weather conditions. This gives Global Ground Support the ability to train all of their operators on the functionality of the real-world deicer without incurring the associated costs or having to wait for a storm. The simulation tracks the performance of users and records their scores for review by the instructor. Users are scored on their performance in regards to the factors of the deicing process, including amount of contaminant removed, time taken, gallons of fluid used, no-spray area violations, and aircraft collisions. This scoring system allows operators to compete against each other and have fun while learning the correct procedures. Clearly, operators require experiential training, but preferably not with the actual planes or deicing equipment until after they are familiar with the equipment, weather conditions, and procedures. Traditional training and videos turn operators into passive audience members, while a simulation turns operators into active participants. Operators are able to become skilled with the equipment controls without having to use expensive real-world materials and risk damage to expensive aircraft during training sessions.
