Currently, two simulators are operating at the Patuxent River Naval Air Museum. They offer the museum customer an opportunity to experience flight in real F-14 cockpits as you take control of the airplane that you select. You see, once in the cockpit you can choose between any one of several types of airplanes; such as an F-14 Tomcat, an F/A-18 Hornet, an A-10 Warthog, a P-51 Mustang, or how about a larger airplane like a C-130 Hercules, plus many more. The flight simulators utilize stationary cockpits, but the aircraft can fly in the same airspace so if you come with a buddy, you both can fly at the same time or even go against each other as you both make arcs and loops in the sky. Do you want to launch and land on an aircraft carrier? You can do that too. These simulators are extremely popular among children and adults of all ages.
Call ahead for availability: 301-863-1900 (option 2 for admissions). The fees to fly the simulators is $10 for 30 minutes.
