Santa Monica Museum Of Flying Welcomes 3D Virtual Reality Flight Simulator:

The Santa Monica Museum of Flying will welcome its newest attraction this Friday, Dec. 7 — the MaxFlight high definition, 3D virtual reality flight simulator FS3000.

The unit was installed at the Museum this week and will be available to visitors beginning Friday.

The simulator features a 360 degree full range of motion and carries two passengers.

The air-to-air combat feature and the carrier landings seem like the real thing. The true to life depth and clarity of the HD-3D projection and the five speaker surround sound system makes the experience as close as you can get to actually flying.

The pitch and roll technology is patented by MaxFlight and no other simulator has the same capability as the FS3000. There are multiple different flight scenarios and dozens of different aircraft that come with the unit.

Daniel J. Ryan, Managing Director of the Museum, said he was delighted with the addition of the MaxFlight simulator and can’t wait to have museum first visitors ride starting Friday.

“This will truly add a new and exciting feature to our overall visitor experience,” Ryan said.

The cost to ride the new simulator will be $5 per person and will be available during the normal operation hours of Friday through Sunday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.

The admission to the Museum is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors/students, and $6 for children aged 6 to 12. Children aged 5 and under are free.

The Museum is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and is located at 3100 Airport Avenue, Santa Monica.
