The Holocopter research project was a collaborative initiative with support from BCIT, SFU, the Centre for Digital Media, and UBC.

The project involved the study of an augmented reality software application designed to demonstrate the flight dynamics of a helicopter rotor head, as part of the Aerospace Maintenance Engineer (AME) program at BCIT. This included examining students’ learning experience, their conceptual understanding of flight dynamics after using the application, and their insights regarding its use and effectiveness. The software application, the research, and the results of the study will be openly licensed to support the broader community in using these resources for learning, teaching, and future research.
