VSA Virtual Reality Simulator

VSA VR Sim Dwg1 1At the request of VSA Club Presidents, the committee of the VSA have commissioned Tom Wilksch in Adelaide to build a portable glider training simulator for use by students and Instructors from Victorian country clubs who cannot easily travel to the existing training simulator at GCV, Benalla.  This new simulator will utilise Virtual Reality technology and be mounted on a compact, purpose-built trailer for convenient transportation between clubs.

Tom Wilksch built the original GFA portable simulator which has been owned and operated by the VSA for some years, principally as a marketing tool at air shows and other public displays. Tom has also built a number of other simulators including the 'Soarability' unit for disabled pilots in West Australia.

Delivery of this new simulator is expected around October 2017.  We will require some keen volunteers to take it on and develop it for use in Victoria.as an integral part of the new GFA training syllabus which is presently being updated to incorporate simulator technologies.

If you are excited by the prospect of this new simulator and interested in being involved please contact me ;
