The DiSTI Corporation and Peak Pacific have announced a strategic partnership to provide Software as a Service (SaaS) virtual 3D training solutions for the commercial airline industry.

Kishor Mistry, Peak Pacific Group’s CEO, stated, “Peak Pacific has developed a leading-edge SaaS platform for Competency/Evidence-Based Training (C/EBT) that we call CLEAR, which offers airlines an innovative training solution for flight operations, cabin crew, and ground staff training. This platform is currently used globally by some of the world’s leading flight academies and airlines.

“The DiSTI Corporation is the world leader in development of Virtual Maintenance Trainers (VMTs) focused on the Defense industry. By combining our capabilities, we are offering a unique solution for the commercial airline industry that will be a real game changer.”

The target customers for the new solutions include commercial passenger airlines, cargo carriers, and training companies. The CLEAR platform will offer a menu of training options targeted at procedural and maintenance applications.

“Our in-depth knowledge of the airline training world and global reach will allow us to offer the DiSTI VMT solution alongside the broader products and services that Peak Pacific offers, hence providing real value to our customers and industry,” added Mistry.

Joe Swinski, CEO of DiSTI, explained, “Our military customers have been using 3D virtual training technology for years, thus proving that the technology is viable for training applications. What has been holding airlines back is that their business model is different and they are challenged by the technology, skills, and infrastructure required for virtual training solutions.

“By partnering with Peak Pacific, we will leverage their decades of experience in delivering commercial training solutions with DiSTI’s experience in developing highly accurate and reliable training systems for aircraft manufacturers such as Boeing and Lockheed Martin,” Swinski concluded.
