British company Rediffusion led the world in development of motion platform flight simulators, used for training airline pilots. The systems used a wrap-around video projection which was generated in response to the behaviour of the pilot. The simulator platform also moved to add movement into the training process for enhanced reality. 

Disney were the first theme park to use simulators in this situation, where high-quality film projection was added to pre-programmed motion for the simulator, which was adapted for large audience throughput.
