It is also used in all three services of the military, army, navy and airforce. For those working in aviation, VR is used as a way to allow designers to try out their ideas and learn what works and doesn't work. They can test their prototype and avoid having to make as many versions in their future versions which saves both time and money.
This is also commonly used in training soldiers for combat situations. It helps teach them how to appropriately react to various dangerous situations before they ever have to go out in the field and react to these situations in real life. VR can help with flight and battle simulations, medic training, boot camp, vehicle simulation and even PTSD.
