What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Our team is dedicated to providing a truly unique VR experience.
We're releasing early access because we value the feedback we'll receive from the community. This feedback will be used to improve the game and add content.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game will be in early access approximately 4 to 8 weeks.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

The early access version will also contain only 1/4 of the campaign.
The early access version will also not have the complete physics system.
The physics algorithm is a complex and ongoing process. As such, it will be updated regularly.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The early access version is roughly 70% complete.

The early access version contains a campaign mode with 7 total missions (four tutorial and three campaign).

The early access version also contains a free flight mode.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes, the early access game will be discounted by 25%”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

Flying Aces - Navy Pilot Simulator is a story based virtual reality (Oculus and HTC Vive) experience unlike any other. You will experience what it’s like to train to become a navy pilot. As gamers, we search for experiences that aren’t possible in our daily lives. With Navy Pilot Simulator, we’re able to bring the armchair pilot into the cockpit of a fighter jet. We have long wanted to develop a true pilot simulator, but this wasn’t possible until the advent of virtual reality. The Oculus Rift allows us to offer an experience that previous generations of hardware aren’t capable of. Our goal is to create a true to life experience as opposed to a game.


The Game

Flying Aces - Navy Pilot Simulator is a story driven pilot experience. Conquering the game will require a skillset of hand eye coordination, decision making, and a tough stomach. You start out as a low ranked Ensign (below a junior lieutenant) tasked with learning the functionality of the F-18 Super Hornet. As you progress through the ranks, the missions become more challenging. The experience takes you through basic take off missions, missile target practice, harrowing carrier landings in storm conditions, and beyond.
