This simulation was conceived for the general public and it is besides the department of E.-Communication of Dassault which took care of it. However, this type of software opens the door to other technologies. Virtual reality is probably already anchored in these circles to train pilots. The application of VR and even augmented reality remains a big area of ​​development in the professional market. This is probably not the last time we will see the world of aeronautics and virtual reality mix.
