Remote Control for Microsoft Flight Simulator

Microsoft and Asobo’s 2020 incarnaction of the Flight Simulator (or MSFS in short) is, hands down, one of the best showcases for VR technology in the home market today. The seated position and high grade of realism create a comfortable and very immersive experience even for first time VR users. That great level of realism however also comes with a downside: flying aircraft is hard.

In order to remedy that problem, specifically for the A32NX by Fly By Wire Simulations, I created a browser-based, highly customizable remote co-pilot’s station where a VR experience-operator can manage all of the required aircraft systems while the untrained VR pilot can still enjoy the full experience of properly flying an airliner.
