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

Pass Required.

  • $4 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.

How Sessions Operate

We follow a flight instruction model. Our instructors are real pilots and they will show you how to properly control a small aircraft like or Cessna 172 or Mooney Bravo, including the all-important landing procedure. Once proficiency has been achieved in basic procedures, the instructor will help you implement a more advanced real-world flying scenario based on your interests including: cross-country flight, multi-engine and airline procedures, bad-weather flying, instrument procedures and flight plans, among many other possibilities.

The Flight Sim Zone is wheelchair accessible.
