What Can I Expect

The Mk IX Spitfire simulator in Suffolk is primed and ready for take off! We are offering 60 and 90-minute sessions at this simulator centre at Mildenhall near Bury St Edmunds.

Of course, Mildenhall is renowned for the active RAF/USAF station of the same name. And the very skilled people behind this Spitfire simulator have worked at and been involved in RAF Mildenhall. With years of experience in clever stuff like avionics electronics, it's no wonder they know how to build seriously good simulators.

The Spitfire sim boasts a complete replica cockpit, with full analogue controls (proper old school!) and tactile. Put simply, this simulator looks, feels and sounds totally like the real thing.

The 220-degree HD screen brings the outside views in super high quality. Even those famous elliptical-shaped wings and the propeller are projected on the screen, so you feel totally immersed in the cockpit experience, just like a budding young World War Two RAF pilot.

Your experience starts with a session on a training sim. This gives you an insight into the instruments, start up, taxiing, flight controls and landing. That way, you're better equipped to handle this iconic fighter plane.

Your mission in the main simulator will be to successfully fly the Spitfire and maybe even take on a Battle of Britain aerial dogfight. Let's see how you handle the Luftwaffe in the skies over Britain. Will you limp back with damage? Will you be shot down in flames? Or will you come back victorious?

At this Spitfire simulator in Suffolk, it truly is flying made real. Buy your vouchers online now and get booked in for your session at this very welcoming, family-run sim centre on the edge of RAF Mildenhall.
