Pilot one of the most famous jet-powered delta-wing bombers ever when you climb aboard this Vulcan flight simulator. This is a totally unique experience as it’s currently the only full-scale Vulcan bomber simulator in the whole wide world.The V bomber sim is waiting near Manchester with those four Rolls Royce Olympus engines running, ready for you to take to the virtual skies in this impressive aircraft. The Vulcan was renowned as a high-speed, high-altitude bomber with a strategic role as an airborne nuclear deterrent during the height of the Cold War. Once relations between Gorby, Reagan and Thatcher had started to thaw in the late 1970s, the Vulcan bomber changed to take on more of a reconnaissance role. Then, having given the RAF loyal service from 1956 to 1982, she was retired. The last airworthy Vulcan run by an aviation trust flew her farewell flight in October 2015, before being retired. So now the real world of the Vulcan is firmly in those post-working years, the nearest anyone will ever get to flying a V bomber is in this amazing simulator. The whole experience has been designed to be as authentic as possible, right down to the exact scale replica of the cockpit which is fully-enclosed. This Vulcan bomber sim has a fighter-type control stick and rudder bar just like the real thing and when you’re sitting there with your headset on, it might be a simulation, but this Vulcan feels very realistic, to say the least. As with any finely-tuned military operation, you will be discussing flight plans with your co-pilot and navigator to agree on the type of simulator sortie you’d like to tackle in the Vulcan. It could be trying a tricky an in-flight re-fueling procedure over the ocean, or perhaps a spot of formation flying, or how about some low-level navigation sweeps over the mountains of the Alps… One thing's for sure, with 60,000lbs of thrust and a climb rate of 16,000ft per minute, this Vulcan flight simulator is a thrilling, high powered virtual ride. And one that’s totally unique being the only simulated V bomber experience anywhere.
