A peek behind the scenes at Disney’s Toontown Studios in Burbank, Calif., in June gave members of the aviation media an opportunity to learn how the animated movie Planes was crafted. The movie opens in theaters August 9 and was previewed at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh on August 2. Planes is the first of a planned trilogy.
BVR Systems is here at the Paris Air Show with an on-board avionics and environment simulator called EVA–which stands for embedded virtual avionics. The Israeli EVA system provides the pilot with a virtual radar, including air-to-air and air-to-ground modes, virtual weapons, a virtual electronic warfare (EW) suite that can simulate flare dispensing and virtual sensors.
