The Museum of Flying at the Santa Monica Airport has added a new attraction that embraces the video-game age.
The MaxFlight simulator offers a 360-degree view with a full range of motion projected on a high-definition, 3D screen for two. The air-to-air combat feature and the carrier landings seem like the real thing, said Dan Ryan, managing director of the museum.
“We are delighted with the addition of our MaxFlight simulator and can’t wait to have our first visitors ride it … ,” he said. “This will truly add a new and exciting feature to our overall visitor experience.”
People can start riding in the simulator today, Friday, Dec. 7 for $5 per person during normal operating hours.
Ryan said the surround sound and visuals make the experience as close as one can get to actual flying.
The Santa Monica Museum of Flying is located at 3100 Airport Ave. For more information call (310) 398-2500.
