Virtual Reality flight simulator.

I saw on TV a guy using a VR headset and gear to do a preflight walkaround of a 'virtual' Cessna 172. Are there any VR flight simulators that would allow you to 'fly' a VR light aircraft? It would be great for guys who can no longer fly (medical reasons, etc.,) to take a spin in the loungeroom in virtual reality.

I understand that the Microsoft flight simulator interfaces with a VR headset. My stepson has one and I tried it out, quite realistic. If you had a good set of pedals and stick it would be convincing.

I use the PlayStation system with Ace Combat.
obviously more arcade then realism.

But its pretty fun. and cool to have the head tracking when dogfighting
