In order to meet the needs of a new generation of learners we must consider the training demands and skills required over the next few decades. As new generation aircraft become more prominent in the global front, advances in airplane technology will drive new training demands. According to Boeing (2018): “As airlines continually invest to improve the quality and efficiency of their operations, new training curriculums and methodologies will need to be adopted to keep pace with innovation”. We are seeing new trends using technology to break long-held, industrial age training paradigms, which hold promise to change the way we look at training for the future. Methodologies such as mobile and distance learning solutions are becoming increasingly popular as a flexible alternative to traditional classroom instruction, and newer technologies such as virtual reality (VR) augmented reality (AR) and mixed reality (MR) are being tested as a way to improve engagement with a new generation of learners to improve training efficiency and knowledge.
