Hannover Airport in Germany has released a new app that allows the user to take part in an immersive 3D tour of an active apron.

The app was unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, where participants used a virtual reality (VR) headset to enable 360º views of the airport’s surroundings. This included getting within touching distance of parked aircraft on the apron and viewing helicopters as they flew overhead.

In Addition, the new app also included a ‘digicopter’ journey around the airport and aprons. Users can download the 3D virtual reality app for free on their smartphone.
