Chocks away for a highly authentic Second World War flight simulator session! You'll be taking on the role of the courageous fighter pilot, as you get ready to climb aboard and take flight
into the virtual skies. Your Spitfire flight simulator experience can last for either 30 minutes or 1 hour.
Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire
Chocks away for a highly authentic Second World War simulator session with these two full-sized, warbird simulators. Both of these Second World War flight simulators are incredibly realistic. The Spitfire one 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. The Messerschmitt simulator (which incidentally is slightly
easy to get into) is just as authentic as the Spitfire simulator.
In both aircraft, all the controls and gauges work just as they would have done for real. And although they look relatively simple compared to the racks of panels and computer-controls of modern airliners, these Second World War
veterans of the sky demanded some serious flying skills from those who piloted them.
You can opt for 30 or 60 minute flights. On the longer flight you'll really be able to get a feel for what it must've been like being sent off on missions in these formidable aircraft.
