173rd Fighter Wing leverages off-the-shelf technology to help student pilots
U.S. Air Force 1st Lt. Martin Sipe, an F-15C student pilot, searches the virtual sky over his right shoulder for 173rd Fighter Wings F-15 Instructor Pilot, Lt. Col. Julius Romasanta’s aircraft during a simulated combat engagement using newly incorporated virtual reality technology at Kingsley Field in Klamath Falls, Oregon, Oct. 12, 2021. The program serves to enhance “chair flying”, which is where students visualize their missions in their mind’s eye, providing real images of the missions they will fly during their tenure at the B-Course.
