Australia's most renowned not for profit gets an interactive cockpit upgrade

 

In 2014 the Royal Flying Doctors Service identified that there was an opportunity to enhance their education experience by improving their fuselage demonstrator. Cyborg Dynamics CEO Stephen Bornstein proposed the kids could have a hands on experience with flying simulated missions. 

The Cyborg dynamics team developed the technical solution in collaboration with RCM studios for the interactive cockpit simulator. RCM studios completed the Fabrication and Cyborg Dynamics Engineering provided engineering and systems support. In 2016 the new and upgraded simulator went to 200 schools across Victoria and Tasmania and increased community engagement by 150% at the Melbourne show compared to its previous year.
