JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas -- On Oct. 22 - 24, 2019 a team from NASA will visit Pilot Training Next at Joint Base San Antonio - Randolph to further their collaboration with data collection.
The PTN/ NASA partnership began in April 2019 and features a two-part collaborative research agreement. First, to understand the physiological and cognitive state during learning and secondly to assist with eye-tracking data visualization.
This strategic partnership creates a symbiotic relationship, which allows PTN to leverage the knowledge and skills NASA already possess to increase student pilot learning.
PTN is Air Education and Training Command’s experimental program with a focus on understanding how Airmen learn, as well as exploring and potentially prototyping a flying training environment that integrates various technologies to produce pilots in an accelerated- and learning-focused manner.
Interviews with PTN subject matter experts and NASA researchers are available Thursday, Oct. 24, 2019 at 2 p.m. central.
