Why Redbird’s Mixed-Reality Sim Could be a Game Changer

Plane & Pilot’s Editor-in-Chief Isabel Goyer trying out Redbird’s Mixed-Reality Simulator.

“The Holy Grail would be to create a virtual reality world that lets in only the controls and operator parts (the physical controls, in this case, a flight sim’s controls and the pilot) while creating an outside world, the airplane and the world outside, including airports and terrain and weather, so the pilot could fly using physical controls while seeing a world around them that’s rendered via virtual reality.

That is what this is.”
