Cobra & Virtual Aerospace soars at RAF Cosford
Cobra Simulation in partnership with Virtual Aerospace took to the skies for the first time together at the RAF Cosford Museum Flight Simulation show 2013. Showcasing the 737-800 Jetmax cockpit with the Cobra Curved Display immersive dome screen. With over 1200 dedicated enthusiasts the stand was packed from morning till night.
The 2 products together provide the ideal commercial jet combo or training aid for budding pilots especially where budget and space are a premium. The Jetmax slides neatly inside the Cobra Curved Display providing the pilot with an much more natural bezel free wide field of view and a 1:1 scale accurate interactive cockpit.
The Cobra was on show with the high quality superb Projection Design F35 running in stunning 2.5K resolution (2560 x 1600) at 4000 lumens achieving an excellent 8 arc minutes per optical line pair. The F35 is a military/ commercial grade projector housed in a magnesium case and is well known in the industry for delivering excellent colour & contrast.
Combined with the simulator was I-fly 737-800 from Flight1 software. Accurately simulating the avionics of this iconic aircraft. Experienced and training pilots quickly found their comfort zone as we offered short flight experiences between Manchester and London Heathrow with some even attempting the tricky London City approach and landings.
