A Second World War ‘combat’ simulator has recently been made available for the public to ‘fly’. The simulator, located in the Merston Hall, has been constructed from a Link trainer fuselage and uses a simulator software program that enables the pilot to shoot down enemy aircraft. The simulator is already proving popular with our younger visitors and was built by three of the team that constructed the Museum’s Lightning cockpit simulator (Pete Pitman, Bob Goodrick and Kieran Wisely). It has been provided with a backdrop mural painted by two more of the Museum’s volunteers, Jack Froulich and Len Outridge.
The Tangmere Museum has 3 computer-controlled Flight Simulators for visitors to ‘fly’.
From 19 July 2021 until further notice, face coverings must be worn when using the flight simulators.
