A flight with a view limiting device
Mason has already got his license to fly, but he is training to fly using the instrument panel only. To train to do this, he wears a hood, a view limiting device with which he can’t see out the windows. He can only see his instruments. His reality is limited to the instruments representing this reality. Nevertheless he is actually out there in the air.
In 250 Miles we will be even more blinded looking at the track of this plane synchronized with its audio in Google Earth. The thing is, we won’t be able to see actual images, we will only be provided with audio, GPS data and satellite imagery. What will this do with our sense of space? Will it be exciting? Will it feel real?
And thanks so much Charles and Mason, for being patient while we were eating your flying time by installing our equipment.
