The Ultimate Spitfire Simulator

Fly the MkIX Spitfire simulator! It’s a pretty amazing set up that’ll have you totally immersed for every single minute that you’re in the cockpit.This unique Spitfire simulator is based at a world-leading facility in Goodwood where the simulator is used as part of the flight training programme for new Spitfire pilots. It’s a real scoop to be able to offer slots in this professional-standard Spitfire sim – and we are as excited about it as you are!The starting point for this simulator build was the original parts from a genuine World War 2 Spitfire along with new parts destined for but eventually not used on modern Spitfire restoration projects. Bespoke parts were also fitted to transform this analogue plane into a digital flying machine.As you sit in the cockpit it all looks so real because it is real. For example the gauges are original with working needles and dials all controlled by the modern electronics fitted behind. The Spitfire feels so real as well. That’s because the set-up is exactly the same as a MkIX Spitfire right down to the clever motion and force feedback. You’ll feel every bump on the grass runway the turbulence and more.It looks real too thanks to the dome’s visuals which create an all-enveloping flying scene with the seamless projection of the nose and the wings. It even sounds right with that unmistakable Merlin engine growl coming through your headset.Even the livery is spot on. The fuselage of this incredible Spitfire simulator pays homage to six-time flying Ace Air Vice Marshal James Edgar Johnson known as Johnnie with his serial number JE-J adorning the side of the sim.As Johnnie would no doubt have told you himself Spitfires are notoriously tricky to handle on the ground but an absolute dream to fly in the air. These sim sessions will give you an amazing insight into the skill and workload involved in piloting such an incredible war bird. With so much power in that supercharged engine and the weight of the aircraft just keeping her flying straight and level is a challenge.During your session you’ll be learning the basics of flying and maybe even taking your first foray into aerobatics. Will you be returning to base to perform a Victory Roll? Book your slot in this unique Spitfire simulator and find out if you’ve got what it takes to be modern-day pilot ace of this iconic fighter aircraft.
