Bisnis.com, JAKARTA - PT Angkasa Pura II (Persero) or AP II has officially opened training based on virtual reality technology, as a new chapter in the company's digital transformation journey.
President Director of AP II Muhammad Awaluddin said that the first batch of virtual reality-based training were 20 airport personnel who served in the Aviation Accident Relief and Fire Fighting Unit (PKP-PK) or also known as Airport Rescue & Fire Fighting (ARFF).
"This is a new achievement for AP II in the journey of digital transformation launched 4 years ago. In the midst of this pandemic, it does not mean that the training and learning process has stopped, on the contrary we can be more intense by using technology, one of which is virtual reality technology, "Awaluddin said in a press release, Saturday (26/9/2020).
He explained that the virtual reality technology for this training is very relevant in the current situation, and it is easy and quick to understand by colleagues. The use of virtual reality technology is an affirmation of AP II to always be committed to carrying out digital transformation and always using the latest technologies in the company's daily operational activities.
Awaluddin said that in the virtual reality technology-based training for ARFF personnel this time, the module used was Fire Emergency Response as a simulation in handling emergency situations on the air side of Soekarno-Hatta International Airport.
Through this module, he continued, participants were simulated as drivers of the Oshkosh 3000 foam tender vehicle, which is one of the main fleets in handling emergencies at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport. The module also has a complete Soekarno-Hatta air side landscape such as runway, taxiway, apron and so on.
In the future, various other modules will be prepared in the ARFF training. After the ARFF unit, virtual reality-based training will be implemented for Aviation Security (Avsec) and Apron Movement Control (AMC) units.
"The three units, namely ARFF, Avsec and AMC, are mandatory operating units so that the airport can operate with 3S + 1CC based standards and procedures. Virtual reality technology-based training itself does not take over the entire training process, but complements and makes it better, "he said.
