Volandia offers its visitors the chance to virtually pilot airplanes or helicopters with its flight simulators, that are positioned in the designated area inside the Forms of Flight Pavilion. The area has some beginner simulators, 4 Cockpit Simulators and a Helicopter Simulator. The use of simulators is managed by trainers and assistants, that explain to visitors the basic controls and assist them during the flight. Each flying session lasts about 15-20 minutes.
Simulators are available from Tuesday to Friday from 10.00 to 12.00 and from 14.00 to 17:40, Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 to 17:40 (departure time of the last “flight”). Flight sessions can be booked online or at the volunteer desk in the hall of the museum, It’s possible to choose the type of simulation and the time of the flight among the available ones. Reservations for the afternoon flights needs to be confirmed before noon at the volunteer desk. Flight Simulators call for a minimum offer of € 2 that you can deposit directly at the museum. The money will go to the volunteers that every day put effort in making virtual flight enjoyable and satisfying, it will be used to maintain and upgrade the flight simulators area.
