Let's Fly Blind: Do You Need to See to Sim?

“You can’t fly a plane blind”. So they say. I am here to prove them wrong.

I have been a blind flight simmer since about 2018, using several technologies, refining my skills, and working with other blind pilots who you might hear from throughout the course of this demonstration. In this discussion, I’ll tell you more about my journey to becoming a blind flight simmer, what we can do in the simulator, and the areas we are still hoping to improve.
