Get Out More…..Perhaps?

Frenchman builds fully functional flight simulator in son's bedroom

A Frenchman has built a fully functional flight simulator in his son's bedroom.
Laurent Aigon, from Lacanau, is an aeroplane enthusiast and worked on the project with his best friend. He spent thousands of euros collecting the necessary parts, Metro reports.

The replica is so realistic that the Institute of Aircraft Maintenance at Bordeaux-Merignac Airport invited Aigon, 40, to give a special lecture on his achievement.

He explained that he is able to fly his 'plane' just like a real-life pilot.

The simulator has since attracted interest from a variety of major aircraft manufacturers who want to use it to play out different scenarios.
It was not revealed what Aigon's son thinks of the simulator, but he has been forced to sleep in the corner of the bedroom to allow his father to make room for the device.
