You’ve always dreamed of being a carrier pilot.
Now live it from the comfort of home!
OpenHornet allows you to build your own personal Hornet flight simulator. OpenHornet is a 1:1 replica of an F/A-18C lot 20 Hornet cockpit for home entertainment purposes. It is a simulator you build, and sit inside to provide a realistic environment for home flight simulation. It is designed to work with the Digital Combat Simulator (DCS) F/A-18C Hornet module, utilizing DCS-BIOS for the software interface layer between your PC and the simulator.
