The Inno66 project aims at developing and demonstrating an innovative multimedia support to train aircraft maintenance engineers to a European certification: the EASA Part66 License
EASA Part-66 regulations define the conditions under which a maintenance engineer is authorized to release an aircraft into service after a maintenance operation. The conditions required are defined by minimum education requirements as well as type rating qualifications for the aircraft or particular tasks.
To get this license, trainees have to be trained from 650 to 2400 hours to both theoretical and practical concepts, depending the aimed license category. In order to support them in this long learning process, the Inno66 partners wants to develop an immersive multimedia platform that will gather the digests of the various modules of the official license together with a set of serious games that will allow users to virtually experiment normal operations but also abnormal situations or failures that are difficult to experiment on real aircraft for economic or security reasons . This innovative platform, available in English and French, will constitute an important progress in the Vocational Education Training (VET) system by proposing complementary and informal tool to improve the skills of trainees when promoting the use of ICT technologies.
