NASA assembles VR simulator to assess eVTOL passenger comfort

Industry news

  • NASA has developed a customized virtual reality flight simulator to test passengers' travel experience in eVTOL aircraft. NASA test pilot Wayne Ringelberg completed a round of test rides in the simulator at NASA's Armstrong Flight Research Center in Edwards, California.

  • Ringelberg was positioned in the top seat simulator's platform, wearing a virtual reality (VR) headset and headphones. The simulated air taxi ride took off from a vertiport on a garage in downtown San Francisco, then went through downtown San Francisco, and landed at another vertiport on top of a skyscraper.

  • After the simulation, Ringelberg provided feedback to the research team, which will be used to help aircraft producers design eVTOL aircraft. After the pilot’s research is reviewed, NASA researchers will conduct human subject research studies over the next four years.
