The contract facilitated by AFWERX and the Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) allows The DVI Group to build upon the success of its next generation training content currently being used in the commercial airline industry.

Founder and CEO of The DVI Group, Matthew Lopes, comments: “We are pleased that our technical training videos are considered robust enough to handle the needs of military airmen who fly some of the world’s most advanced aircraft. Successful completion of this research phase will ultimately transform thousands of pages of constantly evolving documentation, slide presentations, and flat diagrams of complex maneuvers and procedures into a high-quality and visually sophisticated training program designed with the pilot’s experience in mind and built for efficient scaling and development.”

Commercial pilots interviewed about using DVI’s current training material have complimented the content, stating, “These videos give a much better understanding of the maneuvers.” and “Some of the most exceptional tools I’ve ever seen.”

Motivated by the positive feedback and excited for the opportunity to innovate in such a specialized field, The DVI Group is committed to tailoring its commercial solution to the needs of today’s airmen serving in the armed forces. Phase I offers an excellent opportunity for the strategic communications agency to deliver to the Air Force customer an optimized, standardized and enhanced pilot training content library.
