Google, together with California-based advertising agency 72andSunny, created an inspiring ad about a French man, Laurent Aigon, who had a dream to fly a plane and to be a pilot ever since he was a young boy. He never made it as a pilot, so Google showed him how to build a flight simulator.

In the video, after a visit to the airshow, Aigon decides to realize his dream and build a homemade flight simulator, sourcing parts from all over the world; with the cabling system coming from Italy, the radio NAV in China, gathering real flight instruments from a real plane in Peru, the yoke was apparently the hardest part to find; but eventually found it in southeast of France. He even finds a co-pilot to help him fly the plane. The greatest joy that Aigon has is the ability to share his passion with his children and fly a plane his own way, thanks to Google.
