Overview

For WW2 aficionados and fans of the 1955 film The Dam Busters, this simulator experience is an absolute must.

The Lancaster bombers were some of the most famous planes used during the war, first seeing service in 1941 and quickly becoming the RAF’s main bomber.

The Lancaster was normally armed with 8 Browning machine guns, as well as bombs. Some planes were modified so they could carry the aptly named Grand Slam bomb, weighing in at 10,000 kg.

Today, 17 Lancasters survive, with only 2 being airworthy. They’re both used regularly in air shows as part of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, along with other events such as taking flight for the Queen‘s 80th birthday in 2006.

During WW2 they usually completed their missions at night, as they often didn’t have the defences to fly unaccompanied during the day. The Lancasters were just over 21 metres long, had a wingspan of 31 metres and boasted a flying range of 4,000 km.

This is your chance to get a sample of how piloting such a giant of the skies really feels. It won’t be easy, you’ll need to be ready and fully focused to keep it flying straight and true! You’ll need to be precise with your flying, especially when you dive under the Severn Bridge during your simulated flight. Taking off and landing will be a test of your skills. This really is brilliant fun, and a completely unique simulation to take part in.

The replica cockpit gives you the most true-to-life feeling you can get, and helps you really immerse yourself in the moment. You’ll be surprised at how tight the cockpit can be, given how bulbous it looks from the outside. It’s all about accuracy though, as the team at Brighton City Airport look to give you the most realistic experience they possibly can.

A wonderful experience for WW2 buffs and Dam Busters fans alike!
