Final Research Presentation
Summary

As the Airport strives to adapt to a modernizing world, its needs and concerns also evolve. This inevitable process demands close attention, since changes relate not only to procedure, but public safety as well. While the airport industry has made major advancements in technology and policy, little has been altered in the field of airport training. The objective of VAST² is to produce an innovative training tool not yet used in the airport industry. Its focus is on adequately and promptly addressing issues formerly overlooked. These issues include:
+ Airside risk reduction
+ A nonexistent standardized airside training format
+ Inconsistent training methods
+ Enhanced instruction at less Total Cost for 1. New employees, 2. Recurrent trainees, 3. Airfield movement area drivers

Final Research Presentation
Summary

The research gathered from this project will be used in creating a training aid for college students and airport authority personel on airport safety and operations. The simulator will increase the knowledge of current and future airport authority on proper airport operations and safety.
