Take up the challenge in the Flight Sim Zone!

The Flight Simulator Rally, held monthly in the Hiller Aviation Museum’s Flight Sim Zone, presents participants with a specific mission in simulated flight.  Each 30-minute session provides ample time for participants to learn a particular flight, then ends with a challenge flight to achieve the best possible results!

The Flight Sim Zone features a full lab of high-fidelity flight simulators, each equipped with realistic flight controls, high speed graphics processors, and dramatic widescreen-format monitors.  Using state of the art flight simulation software, the Flight Sim Zone provides an exceptional recreation of flight suitable for non-flying novices and veteran aviators alike.

Pilots ages 8 and up are welcome to join each month’s Flight Simulator Rally.  The event is included with Museum admission, but space is limited.  Participants must report to the Flight Sim Zone promptly at the start time of each session to ensure a spot.
