„We decided to cooperate with Vrgineers to develop the most advanced simulator for the F‑16, that combines a physical cockpit with mixed reality technology. We hope that this unique technology will be used as part of training programs for F‑16 military pilots across European countries.“

„Mixed reality simulator gives me a realistic training experience comparable to flying in a real plane. Using an F‑16 simulator, I can rehearse tactical operations, which would otherwise be impossible to prepare for in the real world except for in a simulated environment. I was able to fully operate the cockpit with my hands and train in any scenario.“
