VTOL VR is a VR combat flight simulation video game developed and published by Boundless Dynamics, LLC. It was released on Steam Early Access on August 7, 2017, and entered 1.0 on August 7, 2020. VTOL VR is currently in version v1.9.6.

Summary

VTOL VR is a near-futuristic combat flight game built specifically for Virtual Reality. Pilot advanced multirole jets, using your hands to flip switches, press buttons, and manipulate the virtual flight controls. Take on a wide array of challenges that will put your flight skills, situational awareness, and combat tactics to the test.

No extra hardware is required. If you have a VR set with tracked controllers, then you have a virtual cockpit where you can reach out and interact with the stick and throttle, flip switches, press buttons, and even pull the eject handle if things go wrong.

Immerse yourself in action packed combat missions, delicate vertical landings, aircraft carrier operations, aerial refueling and more.

Create and fly custom missions, which you can share with other pilots using the built-in mission editor and map editor.
