Actually the relevant change was introduced with SR4. See my answer to a question regarding the same situation in SR4: How do you make hacking useful without excluding other players? In short, speak to your GM and propose your Hacker to be handled equivalent to a mage: AR is the equivalent of your sight shifted to "astral" plane VR is the equivalent of ...

Obviously, shadowrun technology is more advanced and cheaper, so owning a helicopter, VTOL vehicle, hoovercraft or maglev train is not out of the question, but there was no technological breakthrough in that direction. Magic can make ...
