Feel the roar of the magnificent Merlin engine as you take control of our Spitfire Flight Simulator in this totally unique experience. The Supermarine Spitfire is the most famous fighter of World War 2 and this experience is as close to flying the real aircraft as you can get! Just flying the spitfire is a challenge in itself yet alone engaging in Air to Air or Air to Ground combat. Spitfires are notoriously tricky to handle on the ground, but an absolute dream to fly in the air. These flying sessions will give you an amazing insight into the skill and workload involved in piloting such an incredible war bird. With so much power in that supercharged engine and the weight of the aircraft, just keeping her flying straight and level is a challenge.
Our Spitfire Flight Simulator has been upgraded using original parts including an original Spitfire blind flying panel, gunsight and the famous Spitfire spade control grip, outside you have the option of using a virtual reality headset or our new 300 degree curved projection screen offering amazing visuals while you sit in a true 1:1 scale Spitfire simulator for the ultimate experience, this is as close to flying a real spitfire as you get without leaving the ground.
