Kansas Museum Offers F-4 Sim Flights

Dec 26, 2012 No Comments by

The Kansas Aviation Museum is offering a rare opportunity for the public to experience a flight in a McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II simulator. The experience will be available Wednesday through Sunday at the Wichita museum.

Detailed flight controls simulate the real thing. A museum volunteer and F-4 simulator creator Justin Messenger will take museum goers through various options from a quick flight to one the museum touts as challenging even for experienced pilots.

The museum is charging $20 for a basic flight that lasts 30 minutes and includes a simulated launch from an aircraft carrier. For $60, the public can experience a so-called immersive flight lasting 90 minutes that includes suiting up in a functional flight suit and strapping to the ejection seat.

Online Editor I've been around airplanes since I was a kid. That's when my uncle, a professional pilot, showed me how to fly his Cessna 177 Cardinal. l later became a writer and editor, so covering the exciting and ever-changing aviation industry -- which I've been doing in Flight Journal's Flybys since the late '90s -- was a natural fit.
