Fly Our Award Winning Flight Simulator
Want to experience the thrill of piloting the mighty Vulcan bomber without leaving the ground? Well now you can join a professional pilot at the controls of the worlds only Vulcan Simulator. Designed and built by our partner company Simulator Systems, the simulator was designed around RAF Woodford’s famous Vulcan XM602. The simulator was flight tested by real Vulcan test pilot, Al McDicken and the last display pilot of XH558 Bill Ramsey to ensure the flight characteristics and “feel” of the aircraft were correct. With some clever audio visuals and motion simulators this is as close to flying the real bomber as it is possible to get, including feeling the mighty Vulcan “howl”.
Now you too can take the controls for the experience of a lifetime.

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, 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)
VULCAN TO THE SKY
Since going 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
