About the experience

There aren’t many opportunities around that allow you to experience what it was like to fly a Spitfire during World War 2. But if you’re a keen history fan who is desperate to gain a greater understanding of what pilots went though, a session in this Spitfire Simulator at RAF Mildenhall should be high on your list. Not only is it located in a former key RAF and USAF venue ran by skilled staff who have worked at and even been involved in RAF Mildenhall when it was an active base, but gives you a chance to experience one of the most realistic replicas around. This session is run entirely by RAF avionics engineers, who will walk you through a session in a training sim first, so you can get to grips with the controls, that way, when you actually sit in the Spitfire Sim you will be prepared for flight. Once you’re ready, you will take a seat in this Spitfire replica cockpit fully equipped with analog controls and tactical feedback that provides all the sights and sounds of Spitfires that once soared over the skies of Britain. With several flight scenarios to choose from, including a Battle of Britain aerial dogfight, this is one of closest flying sensations you can get to the real thing. If you are a long time admirer of these wonderful planes, or know somebody who is, a session in a Spitfire Sim is truly the next best thing to get a real taste for what pilots went through during WW2.
