The Gateway Youth Aeronautical Foundation (GYAF) is making great progress installing a flight simulator lab that will be used to inspire youth interest in aviation. In addition to the initial FSX flight simulator, the DCS virtual reality station under construction will offer military jet options as well as helicopter crew configurations. When the lab opens, the GYAF will conduct guided sessions focusing on basic flight skills and virtual reality experiences relating the Foundation's full-scale fighter jet and helicopter exhibits. The GYAF is partnering with Gateway Flight Training and other organizations to make this flight simulation lab a reality.
Here is a preview of the progress made this week:
