Aquila Bird Flight Simulator
Update: Tutorials for Touch controllers and Xbox controllers are in place, and DK2 is now supported along with CV1.
This is an Early Release - it is not yet finished. I welcome feedback by email.
So, have you dreamed of what it would be to soar like an eagle? Aquila lets you experience soaring bird flight using the Oculus Rift headset on PC. Fly three types of eagle over three different terrains, using Bing photography.
Aquila is made as a fund raiser for the Hawk Conservancy Trust, UK. Supporting this software will contribute to projects and research helping birds of prey in the UK and overseas.
This is a flight simulator: the physics are pretty good for normal flying speeds. Gamepad control is probably the easiest, followed by headset steering. Touch controllers give you direct control of the wings, so it is challenging but satisfying! Check out the tutorial, and keep the comfort mode on to start.
Thank you for your support!
