Pennant Awarded Contract for a Virtual Reality Parachute Flight Simulator

Pennant Training Systems Limited (Pennant) has been awarded a contract for the design, development and production of a Parachute Flight Simulator (PFS) for the Singapore Armed Forces.

The PFS will provide realistic training to improve the proficiency of parachutists in military free-fall and static-line training. The system will use a Virtual Reality (VR) environment to provide 3D immersive training in deployment of parachutes, under canopy flying techniques, flight emergencies and landing phases.

This is the second success for Pennant with this innovative and cost effective product. The first implementation is in-service with the UK forces at the Parachute Training School at RAF Brize Norton.

Pennant CEO, Chris Snook, added "we are confident that the PFS team will deliver a world class solution to this very important customer."
