Flying Iron Simulations and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight at RAF Coningsby have collaborated in using Microsoft Flight Simulator and 3D printed controls to provide pilots with emergency procedure training. In a video published by Authentikit, Squadron Leader Mark ‘Disco’ Discombe MBE shares his decision-making process during the simulated failure.
Microsoft Flight Simulator, which reconstructs the entire world in 3D based on AI and Bing data from the Azure cloud, yesterday received an award at the 24th edition of the D.I.C.E. (Design, Innovate, Communicate, Entertain) Awards, an initiative of the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences (AIAS).
The new edition of Microsoft Flight Simulator has become a visual masterpiece, which is only possible by making smart use of AI, machine learning and the corresponding computing power in the cloud. As a result, the entire world is shown in detailed 3D image, in combination with live weather effects and other air traffic.
