First, get in style with your flight suit, take a seat to learn the fundamentals of flight!
We explain how the aircraft wing makes lift, what forces act on the aircraft and how it’s controlled in flight. Your pilot instructor will demo the controls on your virtual aircraft, an aerobatic Extra 300. Your challenge is to race the other aircraft from JFK to the Statue of Liberty, the first to loop the loop wins!
Following your flight simulator experience, you will be guided through Shannon Aviation Museum to learn more about the exhibits, you can even sit into one of the aircraft and take lots of great photos to share!
