The New England Air Museum, Flight Simulator
October 3, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm EDT
Want to experience the thrill of flying an aircraft without ever leaving the ground? Now you can, thanks to Redbird, a full motion flight simulator opening at the New England Air Museum. Redbird takes off on October 3 when Premier Flight Center instructor pilots provide demonstration flights. You can also learn the theory about how airplanes fly, the weather and other aviation related topics at our complimentary Discovery ground school for children and ground school for adults.
The event will take place from 10 am to 4 pm, and flights will be available on a first come, first served basis.
The Redbird is an FAA-approved simulator that features panoramic screens and motion in all three axes – 40 degrees roll, 50 degrees pitch and 60 degrees yaw. The movement, coupled with the 200-degree visual, provides a realistic look and feel of actual flight.
