Aero-TV: Immersive & Cost-Effective: Virtual Reality + Motion = Talon Simulators

Immersive Experience Makes Simulated Flying Feel Real

Virtual Reality, or VR, is one of the latest innovations in flight simulation. Rather than a full mockup cockpit, the pilot wears VR goggles to give him or her an immersive experience for flight training.

One of the companies developing VR flight simulators is Talon Simulations. At the Interservice Industry Training Simulation & Education Conference in Orlando, FL late last year, Brandon Naids, CEO of Talon Simulations told ANN CEO and editor in chief Jim Campbell that the Talon system reduces the cost and the footprint needed for an immersive flight simulation experience.

Along with the VR goggles and proprietary training software, the system includes a 2-degree of freedom motion simulator.

The VR HD headset allows for 360-degree views in 3D, giving the operator the feeling of being in the cockpit. Precise motion cuing helps prevent motion sickness that can come from the visual inputs that do not match what the pilot's inner ear is telling his or her brain, Naids said.

Naids said the initial market was flight schools for ab initio training because of the lower cost and smaller size of the system. But the company has expanded to work with military contractors on both aerial and ground vehicles.

Aero-TV is a production of the Internationally syndicated Aero-News Network. Seen worldwide by hundreds of thousands of aviators and aviation adherents, ANN's Aero-TV has produced over 3000 aviation and feature programs, including over 1000 episodes of our daily aviation news program, AIRBORNE UNLIMITED, hosted by Bri Cross, Laura Hutson, and Christopher C.
