LOS ANGELES, Oct. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A new facility is bringing authentic F-16 flight simulation to the public, with no flying experience necessary. Fly the Dream (http://flythedream.com/) is home to 7 hi-fidelity cockpit simulators, each one having more than 100 functions found in the actual US Air Force jetfighter. The grand opening for this one-of-a-kind entertainment experience is October 15 from 11 am to 9 pm.
Fly the Dream's F-16 simulators are remarkable pieces of equipment. Every screen, button and readout is designed to perfectly replicate the genuine article, from the heads-up display (HUD) to the combat rudder pedals and the ejector seat (minus the ejection mechanism, of course). The block 52 controller was engineered with help from the Air Force. To complete the experience, a 180-degree field of view provides stunning visual feedback.
Despite having 12 touchscreen monitors with which to interact, Fly the Dream staff are not kidding when they say no flight experience is required. Every session begins with a short technical briefing where all cockpit controls are explained in layman's terms. Hands-on, in-flight assistance is also available throughout the simulated mission. Furthermore, there's no age limit on piloting Fly the Dream's F-16s; paying attention during the briefing is the only requirement.
Fly the Dream is pleased to accommodate special events, from birthday parties to corporate groups and VIPs. A squadron of 7 jetfighters can work cooperatively to achieve customized mission objectives. The facility as a whole can host up to 50 people, complete with catering and a special event coordinator. VIPs are encouraged to request the star treatment package, which adds another level of privacy and personalized service.
Central LA's Fly the Dream is the first in what figures to be a new paradigm of virtual reality entertainment. Franchise opportunities exist for entrepreneurs who want to bring this business model to their community.
