Virtual Reality technology

Learning to fly is a skill that is taught through practice – lots of practice. Pilot students may train in simulators to improve their skills. The more realistic the simulator is, the better the pilot will become. Virtual Reality offers a new dimension of realism to flight simulation. Through the stereoscopic, head-mounted displays, the pilot can much more accurately judge distances, which is crucial, e.g. when practicing landings. The pilot also has an unobstructed 360 degree view, even outside the aircraft. The simulation experience is much more intuitive and realistic than traditional simulators. Another aspect is price: traditional flight simulators are costly since a physical model of the entire cockpit needs to be built. Large screens are also needed to provide an acceptable out-the-window environment. With VR, the entire cockpit and outside world is displayed on two small, head-mounted screens that cost a fraction of the price. Read more about VR and flight training here!

Virtual Reality (VR) is an artificial world that you experience through a screen or goggles. This world may look like the real one or not. The sense of “being there” in this virtual world is enhanced by using advanced graphics, powerful computers and high-performance hardware. The virtual world is often presented visually, but sound and haptic feedback may also be included to enhance the user experience. The user may or may not be able to interact with the virtual world through buttons, sensors, etc.
