Flight Sim Zone

Open Saturday and Sunday, 11:00 am – 2:00 pm

 

Take a virtual flight across the Bay and see the world from the unique perspective of a pilot.

Pass Required.

  • $5 per Pass (in addition to museum admission).
  • Pass is free for Members.
  • Two people can fly on one Pass (pilot and co-pilot).
  • Obtain Passes at museum Gift Shop.
  • Each Pass good for up to 30 minutes of flight time.
  • Seating is limited.

Flight Sim Zone workstations consist of the following:

  • large 4K screen, 3,840 x 2,160 pixel display
  • Saitek flight yoke and throttle quadrant
  • Saitek rudder pedals
  • X-Plane 11 and Prepar3D v.4 simulation software

How Sessions Operate During COVID-19

We have reduced the number of available simulators in each flight session to obtain social distancing.   Initial instruction is provided via pre-recorded video.  All stations, flight yokes and throttles are disinfected and idled for 90-minutes before reuse.  We follow a flight instruction model. Our instructors are real pilots and they will show you how to properly control an aircraft, including the all-important landing procedure. 

The Flight Sim Zone is wheelchair accessible.
