What is there to do?

Feeling the need for speed? Well, at Air Combat Zone you can be your very own fighter pilot, because here you get the exclusive opportunity to get behind the controls of a high performance F/A-18 flight simulator and experience modern air combat - AND you get to do it against others!

If you have ever wondered what it might be like to be a real F/A-18 pilot, it's at Air Combat Zone that you can to find out!

The Air Combat Zone experience redefines the family day out as it brings you the thrill of a lifetime - and it's JUST like the real thing!

Kids - this isn't a video game!

When you climb aboard an Air Combat Zone simulator, you settle into the ejection seat, and then you will be amazed F-8 Hornet Simulator Cockpit. Can you just imagine yourself up there in the sky?

The live instrumentation, working Heads Up Display, replica HOTAS throttle and stick and giant view of the world outside your cockpit combine to convince you you’re flying a Hornet for real!

Air Combat Zone offers 3 mission durations. All of these missions start with 20 minutes of training to ensure you're ready for your simulator mission, so even if you haven't tried this before, you'll be fine! Once the training is complete "pilots" (that's you!) head to the flight line for a 20, 40 or 60 minute flight in one of their F-18 Hornet flight simulators

Did we mention you get admission into the museum with your experience too?
