Routine and repetitive practice is required to excel at any endeavor. Musicians spend countless hours on instruments, athletes train relentlessly, and military aviators? They need practice too. The problem is air combat training is either too theoretical on the one extreme, or two resource-intensive on the other.
On this episode, three team members from Red 6, a Southern California aerospace company, join us to describe a high-tech, low-cost solution they have developed to maximize aerial training effectiveness against the latest threats with existing assets. Their augmented reality headset will revolutionize not just how military aviators train but will have countless utility in numerous other applications. In short, it’s a game changer.
During the listener question segment, guest cohost Boat helps answer whether Naval Aviation helps with homeland defense, why the F-35C does not have an internal cannon, and why Super Hornet and Growler pylons are canted, among other topics.
