    Flight Sims Now Available With Real Air Traffic Controllers

    OSHKOSH, Wisconsin – Flight simulation is about to take an impressive step toward more realistic flight with the introduction of actual air traffic controllers.​

    Pilots have long used simulators to provide a wide range of training scenarios, from basic navigation to complex system failures. But however lifelike the simulations have been, they’ve always lacked the added realism — and cognitive workload — of interacting with air traffic control.​

    Pilotedge, a New Jersey company, is here at the big Airventure aviation show demonstrating a new service that brings real, live air traffic controllers to flight simulators across the country.​
