Customer Testimonials


The Western Army National Guard Aviation Training Site provides a one-of-its-kind Virtual Maintenance Trainer for the UH-72A Light Helicopter Repairer Course at the Silverball Army Heliport. More than 20 UH-72 Lakotas can be found at the Arizona Army National Guard and the Western Army National Guard Aviation Training Site. 

The UH-72A aircraft are used daily to assist civil authorities and support U.S. Customs and Border Patrol along the Southwest border. Furthermore, these aircraft require regular maintenance higher than most army aircraft.

The UH-72A aircraft is registered with the Federal Aviation Administration and is owned by the Army and the Army National Guard; that needs to be maintained to FAA standards of flight safety, making the training and maintenance of these aircraft challenging with a need for strict monitoring.

The DiSTI Corporation built a Virtual Maintenance Trainer consisting of 12 workstations that enable students to familiarize themselves and practice maintenance tasks before opening a door or hatching the physical aircraft. DiSTI’s Virtual Maintenance Trainer facilitates the training program for maintainers from the Army National Guard, Reserve, and Active Duty components.

DiSTI’s VMT offers a virtual practical exercise interactive workspace designed to support the performance of UH-72A maintenance tasks to task standards. Leveraging DiSTI’s expertise enables the Army to conduct training on large screens, desktop size screens, and mobile devices.

The Virtual Maintenance Trainer got successfully implemented at the WAATS in Marana, Arizona, in early 2016 and resulted in the graduation of its first class of trainees. The key to DiSTI’s success in UH-72A VMT development lies with the use of DiSTI’s VE Studio® software tools that offer an end-to-end solution for requirement analysis and traceability, design, development, and test.
