Aircraft Ground Support Equipment (GSE) Training

L-3 DPA strives to stay ahead of the game when it comes to training solutions for the aviation industry. Which is why it comes as no surprise that we offer training and simulation solutions for every niche of the aviation operations, including aircraft maintenance, ramp operations, and ground support equipment. Our systems fully replicate the experience of using the most popular and sophisticated ramp operations vehicles. Using the actual equipment from these machines, we're able to create a no-risk, virtual 3D environment, allowing you to dramatically increase the efficiency of your training programs. Trainees gain valuable, hands-on experience while familiarizing themselves with critical controls before ever stepping inside a vehicle.
