In yet another example of how the ongoing pandemic has changed the way business is traditionally done, Aerospace Solutions Sdn Bhd an independent Malaysian company consisting of an international team of aerospace specialists with over 120 years of combined experience within the business, general, sport flying and drone segments of aviation, is going virtual.
Aerospace Solutions and Gecko Digital Ltd have entered into a collaboration to offer 360 degree VR promotional tours to the global aviation market with the deal inked at the ongoing Selangor Aviation Show 2021, taking place from 25 - 27 November at Skypark Regional Aviation Centre (RAC), Subang Malaysia.
Mike Creed, founder and Group CEO of Aerospace Solutions said, “The collaboration with Gecko Digital enhances the sales process between the buyer and the seller, as the new virtual reality capabilities will add a unique new technology to the traditional marketing processes, providing prospective buyers a 360 virtual viewing of the aircraft for sale.”
Founder and CEO of Gecko Digital, James South, said “The global pandemic has accelerated the need for more digital promotion of aircraft for sale or charter before any actual physical interaction between prospective buyers and aircraft sellers is required. The Selangor Aviation Show 2021 is therefore a very timely opportunity to introduce our affordable 360-degree Virtual Reality tour solution to the global aviation market.”
Gecko Digital is a leading international multimedia provider, offering the highest quality HD 360 degree Virtual Reality promotional videography and creative content developed for sophisticated web-based marketing. Gecko Digital’s solutions provide a compelling, interactive and immersive experience. The company distinguishes itself from other digital media providers by offering a variety of specialty features and new technologies, ranging from its innovative Virtual Reality Expo to captivating videos and bespoke online marketing campaigns that deliver clients’ content to the audience it deserves.
A 360 degree Virtual Reality aircraft tour is a simulated walk-through tour of a real aircraft (both interior and exterior), usually composed of a sequence of videos and still images stitched together. With immersive 360 degree VR tours of aircraft for sale and/or for charter, prospects need only explore the aircraft digitally in order to zero down on a select few aircraft before needing to visit them physically. This minimises physical interaction between the sellers and the prospects, as well as reducing travelling costs and time for both sellers and buyers.
