PASSENGER AND CREW EXPERIENCE

The Concept

PACX seeks to bring the feeling of responsibility and the significance of traveling with passengers and crew to your simulator. It is designed to be unintrusive, varied, dynamic, and simple to use.

Passenger Simulation

Dynamic per-passenger simulation creates a varied and realistic experience on every flight. Passengers react, in real time, to various events and will have their own unique reactions based on their identities.


Dynamic Announcements

Flight attendant announcements and crew interactions are varied and will adjust to the flight parameters. This includes verbal representations of flight numbers, destinations, times of day, and more.

Interaction

Interaction with the passengers and crew is simple and responsive. Using your preference of interaction method, passengers can be informed of various changes in the flight and information can be requested from the crew.

Menu

Using the announcement menu, you can inform passengers of delays, diversions, aircraft problems, and more. You can also answer crew questions or request an update on their status.


Vocal Interaction

Using the vocal interaction system, you can verbally speak to the passengers and crew. Any announcement that can be made via the menu can be done verbally. Public addresses can be made via the vocal control menu and passengers will react.

Integration

PACX is able to load, send, and receive information via several methods to allow for tighter integration with other software.

Data

  • Web-based flight reports can be easily shared with friends or virtual airlines
  • Via simple XML scripting, various elements of PACX can be customized and expanded.
  • Applications can inform PACX of flight information to reduce the amount of manual data entry required.
  • A simple network interface allows PACX to send and receive information, in real time, from other applications.

Aircraft Integration

PACX will be able to integrate with select third party aircraft to allow for interaction via in-cockpit controls.
