Years ago, desktop flight simulation was of little use, if any, in primary flight instruction. It had some use in instrument training, but that was largely ignored.
That has ALL Changed. Realistic flight models, navigation, online Air Traffic Controllers and hardware integration has made desktop flight simulation a useful, if not indispensable training tool, by:
The Open Source Flight Training Device project aims to put flight simulation in the mainstream of flight training.
Improving retention and muscle memory
The project is looking for tech-minded type people that are interested in or have experience (NOT necessary!) in...
3D CAD\Design, Electronics\circuit design\assembly, Robotics, 3D printing, CNC operation, graphic design, flight training and more!
An interest in learning is the only requirement.
