This Second World War (1939 - 1945) flight simulator is incredibly realistic. The Spitfire has an exact replica cockpit, so it’s worth noting it’s a bit of a mission to clamber up and get in there,
just as it would have been for all those freshly-graduated fighter pilots during the Second World War. And when you do get inside the Spitfire you’ll soon realise how narrow the fuselage is,
making it a comfy fit to say the least!
All the controls and gauges work just as they would have done for real when this aircraft was introduced. And although they look relatively simple
compared to the racks of panels and computer-controls of modern airliners, this Second World War veteran of the sky demanded some serious flying skills from those who piloted them.
You can opt for a 30 minute or 1 hour flight.
