Fly ADS-B VR

Android Police coverage: The FAA's new VR app lets you experience ADS-B tech through a plane's cockpit

ADS-B tech is a surveillance technology that uses satellite navigation to position and track aircraft. Fly ADS-B VR is a new app that showcases what it is like to pilot an aircraft using ADS-B tech by taking advantage of Android's virtual reality capabilities. When you consider that any aircraft that plans on flying in controlled airspace must be equipped with an ADS-B Out by December 31, 2019, using Fly ADS-B VR to get familiar with the technology may not be such a bad idea.
