Extending an engineering simulator’s FOV

Peripheral vision is an important factor for the perception of movement in 3D space. Using low-cost solutions, the field of view of an engineering flight simulator was extended from 50 to ~140 deg improving drastically the pilot’s flight perception. Next step could be a cylinder or dome projection, but not in the near future.
