Virtual Reality Flight Simulator

Henri Rantanen 9

In the summer of 2018, I built a VR-based flight simulator. The first version was just to just play with a computer with the yoke mounted to the desk, but I soon realized virtual reality would certainly add a whole layer of realism that would help train hand-eye coordination of flying a plane.

As a result I continued the project and added even more realism!

So, I’m going to be a pilot

Ever since I was a little kid, there has been a small spark in me to get to the skies. Now, after a decade of aviation-related hobbies, I have started flight school to get a Private Pilot's License.

Read how I've gotten from flying RC-planes to skydiving and flying with an actual aircraft!
