Transportable Gliding Simulator

Tom Wilksch’s Portable Gliding Simulator offers two improvements over a traditional simulator installed in a fixed location. Built on a trailer base, this can be towed to public events to serve as a recruiting tool – offering a taste of soaring to many more people. And since it folds up tidily, it doesn’t require dedicated storage space when not in use.

I love how the aerodynamic cover doubles as a large curved projection screen.
