The benefits of virtual flight
How flying in virtual reality can help combat stress.

Who are the flightsim experts here? what is the sim? DCS game?
Maybe I can my boss to send me to this program (looks like Mach Management from poster in background) to help with my work-related stress? wink

Virtual COMBAT flight is great.

Civilian (ie non combat) flight bores me.

Sometimes virtual combat gets a little too stressful and a quiet IFR flight in a small GA plane is just the thing. smile However, I don't do this enough to spend more money on civvie simulators and the ones I own don't support VR <cough! Dovetail!>

Did you see what the Navy is doing now, made a simulator for a Navy carrier deck so the deck boss and LSO guys can practice.

sounds like you haven't tried flying the a2a boeing 377 propliner yet. nary a dull moment in a huge hulking aircraft based on a b29 with 4 of the largest piston engines ever put on an aircraft. has a completely functional flight engineer panel as well, plus a navigator's station. can even be used with a sextant gauge.

you'll be constantly busy doing the work of 4 people by yourself.

I agree for the most part. Only a GA flight sim with very detailed, accurate, real world terrain/roads/cities etc. with great weather modeling that supports VR would interest me.

That's true IF the aircraft systems being modeled to the nth degree is what turns you on. And that's fine if it does. For me, in both combat and GA sims, what is going on outside the cockpit matters at least as much as what goes on inside. Every switch and button being accurately modeled isn't nearly as important to me as a great dynamic campaign in a combat sim or an accurately created real world map for a GA sim.

I can't wait for the day when you can fly around Superman style in a convincingly detailed VR environment.

great! thanks.

the plane was interesting and I kept thinking is was a soviet or russian design until I looked at the wiki. It was designed ~60 years ago so maybe russia since they were controlling Czechoslovakia?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aero_L-39_Albatros

The Aero L-39 Albatros is a high-performance jet trainer developed in Czechoslovakia by Aero Vodochody. It was designed during the 1960s as a replacement for the Aero L-29 Delfín as a principal training aircraft. The L-39 Albatros has the distinction of being the first of the second-generation jet trainers to be produced, as well as being the first trainer aircraft to be equipped with a turbofan powerplant. The type was exported to a wide range of countries as a military trainer.
