AICC Podcast: Peter Morton discusses early issues

A podcast interview with Peter Morton is now available (direct download: AICC-20th-Peter-Morton.mp3 (MP3 audio, 5.6 MB)). This is the first in what we hope to be a sustained series of podcasts from the AICC. It is only appropriate that this first interview is with one of the principal figures in the formation of the AICC.

Peter Morton and his Cirrus

Peter was a prominent figure in the formation of the AICC and was responsible for airline training at Boeing during the 1987-1995 time period. During the interview he shares memories of the formation of the AICC, including the interoperability and proprietary platform issues of the time. Please listen to this 12 minute podcast to learn about the AICC, the CBT of the late 1980s and Peter's memories of Boeing 777 CBT development. At the end of the interview, Peter admits he was initially surprised that the AICC is still active, and then upon reflection expresses his thoughts on the surprising longevity, and future, of the AICC.
