Virtual reality is central to aviation and maritime training

What is often seen as a novelty in many domains has in fact been used for decades

Virtual reality has been around for decades, one of its earlier applications being the training of aircraft pilots in rather basic mechanical installations. It is now widely used in the aviation and maritime sectors to form crews. Many of the systems set up in the very complex training installations in use today rely on a number of IEC International Standards for their operations.
