This game was built from the ground up to achieve three key goals: realism, accuracy, and authenticity of flight. Today, it has become the most immersive virtual flight experience to date that isn’t a full-sized simulator used to train pilots. This free update is compatible across a wide range of supported devices, including various Windows Mixed Reality headsets (HP Reverb G2, etc.), Oculus, Valve, and HTC headsets.
