HISTORICAL AVIATION

BUILT WITH PASSION

This simulator was developed and designed with a desire to make flight in this historic aircraft as real as possible without the cost or risk of having to take the actual aircraft into the sky.

Having the most immersive Spitfire flight experience in the world within reach of many, born out by the huge popularity of our commercial simulator centre.

Sim2do Simulator Centre is proud to announce the launch of our Spitfire simulator to experience being at the controls of this iconic war plane for a flight as well as giving wartime combat experiences to non-pilots.

It’s the closest thing to flying a real Spitfire.

THE FUSELAGE

 For over 80 years, the Supermarine Spitfire has enraptured the nation. Now, you can experience piloting the real thing in a truly immersive, scratch-built simulator, with a complete replica cockpit, analogue controls and tactile feedback that surrounds you in the sights, sounds, and feel of the iconic machine.  Built by Sim2do, everything from the design of the seat to the cosmetic de-icing systems, at an extraordinary level of detail to produce one of the most evocative, immersive Spitfire simulator available on the market today.

VISUAL AND SOUND SYSTEM

The fuselage is mounted within a 3 meter diameter screen that covers 220 degrees. The simulator instructor will be talking to you through a GA headset as an air traffic controller would. Sound for the glorious Merlin engine is provided through tactile transducers so you are basically sitting inside the speaker system and it feels totally authentic with a tactile seat! The propeller of the aircraft is projected as are the wings correct to size and scale!
