I am new to the Flight Simulator scene. I have owned the game for a while but, to put it bluntly, I am awful at playing it. I picked it back up because somebody in my life has asked me to help them conquer their fear of flying, and are adamant about trying to use VR technology in addition to some therapy videos to do so. I need some tips on mods that could possibly make this a reality, and the community here seems like the best place to get some ideas.
I am already in possession of an Oculus Rift headset, a copy of FSX Steam Edition, and a copy of FlyInside.
What I need are some add-ons that could simulate a real-life flight for this person from a passenger's point of view. The flight would be a short flight from Roanoke or Lynchburg, Virginia to Charlotte, North Carolina. The planes that usually fly from these local airports are CRJ200s.
My questions are:
-Are there mods that can add a passenger cabin to a Canadair CRJ200?
-Can I force the camera into a passenger seat in a way that would simulate an actual flight?
-What is the best way to fly the plane for the noobiest of noobs? If I could automate this or have someone else fly for me, I absolutely would.
-Are there any other mods or changes I could make to better accomplish this?
Thank you all. Let me know what is or isn't possible. I really want to share the love of flying with those around me that are hesitant or scared to give it a try.
To learn how to fly the bigger aircraft you have to start at the beginning.
Take the lessons with a single engine craft and work your way up from there.
