The navigation and communication equipment installed as a part of the Aviation Advances program resemble more features than that of a video game, with the rendering changes of screens and pixels instead of traditional gauges and dials. The modern Aviation Advances give a ray of hope to older aircraft and also a new lease of life.
The advancements have been instilled by the United States Naval Test Pilot School (USNTPS) C-12 fleet. The modernized aviation systems are better known by the name avionics, installed in the school’s three-twin engine disseminate different knowledge on the GPS and the tracking maps which allows the pilots to assess the precise location of the aircraft.
“This new flight deck management system is by far the most advanced in the USNTPS fleet,” said USNTPS Deputy Chief Flight Instructor Bob Blake, “It not only allows USNTPS students to maintain better situational awareness, particularly when flying without visual references, but it also gives the USNTPS fleet an additional capability for systems training.”
The skills are not just limited to the USNTPS, claims the chief of operations at Test Pilot School. He further said that these findings are transferable to the aviation industry with the help of the USNTPS graduates, who eminently are the masterminds behind the military aviation combat capability. Sometimes it is better to know of advancements well in advance so that the preparation ahead could be done directly focusing on one goal.
