EDM to test pilot skills with Mach Loop Challenge at I/ITSEC

Manchester, UK. EDM, a leading global provider of training simulators to the civil aviation and defence sectors, announced today that it will be testing pilot skills with its Mach Loop Challenge at I/ITSEC 2016.

During the five day modeling, simulation and training show later this month, EDM will demonstrate its high fidelity G-Seat which will be integrated with a high definition visual system featuring The Mach Loop. The visual display system has been developed in collaboration with Immersive Display Solutions (Booth #1281) and includes their VisionStation 2™ desktop display system integrated with a Barco F50 projection system and Immersaview™ software to warp the image onto the dome surface.

The Mach Loop is situated in South Wales, UK, between the valleys of Dolgellau in the north and Machynlleth. This unique military range is used by the Royal Air Force, US Air Force, US Marines Corps and other allied air forces for low level, high speed flight training. EDM will be running a competition at I/ITSEC for pilots to test their skills on the G-Seat by flying the Mach Loop in the fastest time possible.

I/ITSEC (the Interservice / Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference) which runs from 28th November to 2nd December in Orlando, Florida, is the world’s largest military modeling, simulation and training conference and aims to promote international and interdisciplinary cooperation within these highly specialised fields.

Mick Bonney, EDM’s Director – Sales and Business Development said: “The Mach Loop is a significant test of a pilot’s flying skills and we hope delegates will enjoy this fun competition on our G-Seat. This is the second time we’ve run the Mach Loop Challenge at I/ITSEC and we’re expecting an even bigger response this time.”
