Refuel safely with Mission Refueling!
Designed for a target of private aircraftpilots, flight schools students and their families, this serious game aims at raising awareness towards safety refueling procedures, in a playful way.
Risks related to refueling are numerous :
- misfueling (fuel error)
- fuel vapors
A game suitable for educational goalsGameplay:
In this immersive 3D real time simulation game, the player is a pilot about to make a family trip. His mission is to execute all phases of a successful refueling, while taking measure of risks associated to this exercise.
He has to select actions to perform and prioritize them. He also has to keep an eye on his children while answering their questions about safety procedures. Each correct answer brings back points and allows him to improve his score.
At the end, the player can register himself to compete against other pilots and participate in the ranking of the 10 best players. He can improve his score with each successful mission.The game :
Immersed in the realistic environment a virtual airfield, the player must perform the pre-flight inspection, lead the aircraft to the refueling station and fill all safety requirements prior to refueling:
-Tighten the handbrake
-Stop the engine
-Bring out all passengers
-Close the canopy
-Goto the PLC
-Choose the right fuel
-Connect the equipotential bonding to the cabin.
Then the refueling can begin.

Animations around Mission Refueling have been held during aviation events in France.
The website also provides some additional information for pilots (supply logistics, map of French airfields and availability of the AirTotal fuel types).
A realistic 3D modeling
For a maximal realism in the rendering of places and situations, Interactive 4D scouted for locations and took hundreds of pictures on an airfield close to Paris.
A plane and a helicopter were modelled in 3D on the basis of real aircrafts, so that the situations could fit as closely as possible to the reality. A refueling station of Total is also identically represented in 3D in the game.
