Flight Sim Saturday

Saturdays, July 18 – August 29

45-minute sessions begin at 11 AM each Saturday.

Experience high-fidelity flight simulation at the Hiller Aviation Museum!

On Flight Sim Saturdays, the Mezzanine-level flight simulation lab opens to the public for a special limited engagement.  Participants learn the basics of piloting a small airplane, then conduct a series of simulated flights over a beautifully recreated San Francisco Bay Area.

Pilots ages 8 and up are welcome to join each Flight Sim Saturday.  The event is included with Museum admission, but space is limited.  Each party is limited to one ticket valid for access to one flight simulator during the program.  Participants must secure a timed ticket from the Admissions counter in the Museum Gift Shop on the morning of each program.
