Flight simulator

Flight simulator lands at new location.

New location, updated graphics, and same fascination as before: Due to the modernisation work we had to remove the flight simulator from its familiar location in the Aeronautics Section. The device – the same as those actually used to train real airline pilots – is now located between the glass blowing stand and the ceramics section on the second floor. Visitors can still look over the shoulder of our demonstration pilots. The cockpit display from the two-engine DA42-NG aircraft is projected on a big screen. During the daily demonstrations, the landscape slides by on the large curved screen in front of the cockpit, giving spectators a realistic sense of flying. An expert is on hand to explain the technology and answer questions.
