You may want to start with an Ultralight, and get a few hours under your belt before trying some RedBull Style stunts or flying the F18, but the choice as yours. With 36 different aircraft and 24,000 airports to choose from the sky is the limit for your flying adventure!

The Comox Museum Flight Simulator has been upgraded with great new programs to bring even more realistic flight simulation to the popular library feature. Check out the library to read up on your favourite plane, or if you really want to be challenged, check out the F18 User’s manual (it’s thick, give yourself sometime if you really want to learn about this jet!). With upgraded controls, foot pedals and new ultra realistic backgrounds the thrill of flight can be yours – all that is missing is the G-force!

The Simulator is availble for use during Museum Hours at no charge.

Many thanks to museum volunteer Len Phillips for spearheading the installation and ongoing upgrades to this fun attraction – rumour has it he is working on the G-force!
