For the first time in Costa Rica, the Space Drone Simulator SDS-1, arriving from Europe, is on display in the Paseo de las Flores mall in Heredia.

This simulator is used for gamers or to train professional or military pilots. It has a P3D program from Lockheed Martin, one of the largest defense companies in the world.

It has the shape of a spaceship, all the characteristics of a space shuttle and has 3 audio systems, robotics, 3 high resonance screens and 4 computers with the same software used by the United States Air Force (USAF).

From August 3 to September 8, during shopping center hours, you can experience the experience of being inside the cabin of operations of an aircraft and seeing in its windows what the pilots see, even perceiving the sensation of the takeoff.

“This experience was very different, since I have never traveled, the feeling of being on an airplane and appreciating the landscapes was really exciting, besides the experience of leaving the earth is very real, you can appreciate the constellations and the stars,” explained Jennifer Sancho Acuña, one of the first people to enter the simulator.
