After arriving at our Manchester base you will be escorted to our Top Secret, 1970,s RAF style briefing facility where you will meet your navigator / co pilot / instructor for the sortie. You will review various mission profiles, discuss basic controls as well as complete a full safety briefing before heading into the simulator. Once inside the cockpit is fully enclosed and an exact scale replica of the real aircraft. Plug in your headset, listen to Air Traffic Control and start the 4 Rolls-Royce Olympus engines then taxi to the runway and you’re ready to go.
Throttles forward as 60,000 Lbs of thrust hurl you down the runway, gentle back pressure and your airborne at 140 knots – this aircraft will accelerate quickly as you point the nose skywards and climb at nearly 16,000 feet per minute topping out at its service ceiling of 55,000 feet in just a few minutes.

You choose what you do?
We have carefully designed a number of challenging sorties for you to choose from, whether that’s low level navigation, formation flying, trying your hand at inflight refuelling or simply free flying, we have something for you.
You at the controls not the instructor!
An important point we NEVER forget is that it’s you and not your instructor that will remain at the controls throughout the entire flight, your instructor will offer advise but the flying part is all down to you. Very rarely will your instructor touch the controls unless they are demonstrating a particular technique.
Are there any restrictions?
By trying to keep the inside of the cockpit as close to real life as possible we have used real aircraft dimensions so space is tight. We have built in a single jump seat so you can share the experience with 1 other person. Whilst there are no weight restrictions you should be able to fit into a normal airline style seat. Our age restriction for the Vulcan is 10 years old (The visibility is restricted and younger children even with a booster seat will have problems seeing out the window)
Since go live we have developed a close relationship with the famous XH558 “Vulcan to the sky” team who all agree that this is as close as it comes to the real aircraft, and they should know! We highly recommend you visiting their website and museum for a look at the real aircraft. www.vulcantothesky.org
