“Since the 70s, American pilots have been training their skills on flight simulators – it turned out to be cheaper and, in some cases, more effective than training flights. Today, anyone can learn the basics of driving a car with the help of car simulators or learn how to build a business in the Virtonomics business simulator.”

Pavel Durov, founder of Telegram
