Product Description

Fly Our Award Winning Flight Simulator

Want to experience the thrill of piloting the mightly Vuclan bomber without leaving the ground? Well now you can join a real pilot at the controls of the worlds only Vulcan Simulator. Designed and built by our partner company Simualtor Systems, the simualtor was designed around RAF Woodfords famous Vulcan XM602. The simualtor was flight tested by real Vuclan 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, 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 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

    Flying an Avro Vulcan at Virtual Aerospace, Bacup
    Saturday October 21: a truly memorable experience – a 2-hour session in the Vulcan simulator. If you think the Vulcan sim here must be some sort of gimmick with plastic seats and a computer console, think again. I’d had the honour of seeing into the cockpits of real Vulcan’s, including XM655 (at Wellesbourne) and XH558 (at Doncaster Sheffield) and, believe me, the Vulcan cockpit at Bacup is as real as it gets. Even more astounding is the actual flying experience, from the highly realistic crew briefing room to the actual flying itself, where you can choose a wide range of scenarios – I particularly enjoyed joining a Victor tanker for air-to-air refuelling. Believe me, after only a few minutes you will think that you really are flying an Avro Vulcan. It helped on this occasion that my instructor was Wing Cmdr Bill Ramsey (former RAF and XH558 Vulcan Captain) who had been consulted on the design and operation of the simulator; however, you can be guaranteed that all the instructors are keen ‘Vulcan types’ here. Bill’s input and the superb efforts of the design team at Bacup ensure that the Vulcan experience is as real as it can possibly be. I cannot recommend it highly enough. JOhnathan G

    I don’t normally do reviews – but this requires one
    I had a trip in the Vulcan simulator with instructor Peter. We had a thoroughly good time! We packed a lot into 1 hour including low flying in the valleys of the Lake District, beating up Leeds/Bradford airport at night at 200 feet, “touch and go” landings. We even found time for a barrel roll and a full loop. Great session and worth the 250 mile drive, thanks Peter. VicG.
