With the wind in your hair, you can be at the controls of your hang-glider, microlite, paraglider or glider in different regions of the world. These have been studied in particular detail so that pilot training can be as true-to-life as possible.
With the wind in your hair, you can be at the controls of your hang-glider, microlite, paraglider or glider in different regions of the world. These have been studied in particular detail so that pilot training can be as true-to-life as possible. The gliders behave and handle just like in real life. Each flight model has been studied and approved by many light aviation pilots.
The outside environment is astonishingly real with 3D clouds moving in the direction of the wind, and thermals allowing all types of flight (thermalling, ridge soaring...). As for the simulator's artificial intelligence, it will make you shiver, generating countless intelligent gliders in the sky. Imagine the result by taking part in the competitions, placing yourself side-by-side with other virtual pilots willing to take any risks to win the race. With Hangsim, you can become initiated into un-powered flight through pleasure flights, challenges and competitions taken directly from international contests.
