Help us to raise £15,000 to install a simulator in the Museum.

Sitting alongside our genuine Second World War Spitfire MkXVI, the simulator will help to answer in part, the age old question of “what is was like to fly a Spitfire”.

Using authentic WWII controls, visitors will be able to take off, fly and land a Mk XVI Spitfire whilst sitting in a realistic cockpit!

In addition to making our visitor experience more immersive, the simulator will also promote education at the museum and hopefully, raise funds which will be re-invested in the Museum.

All together installing the simulator will cost £15,000 but thanks to local business, politicians and stakeholders the Museum has already received £6,800 in donations and pledges towards realising our ambition.

As such, we hope to be able to launch the simulator to our visitors in Spring of 2018 in time for the Centenary celebrations of the RAF.

Though ambitious, the simulator will help bring the museum further into the 21st century and hopefully draw more visitors.”

Our aim with the simulator is:

  • Give visitors a flavour of what flying a real Spitfire is like.
  • Continue our mission to Engage, Educate and Inspire our local community.
  • Be more secure and relevant in the future.
  • Raise additional funds which we can invest in improving our visitor services
  • Above all, the simulator will be good fun!

What the simulator costs:

  • Cockpit: £1000
  • Controls: £5000
  • PC Hardware: £5000
  • Installation: £4000
