Experience the virtual skies at Cosford

Aviation fans can experience the virtual skies next month as the Flight Sim 2014 event heads to the Royal Air Force Museum Cosford in Shropshire.

Taking place on Saturday 4 October 2014, aviation enthusiasts will enjoy a day packed with all the latest flight simulation software and the chance to test out their virtual flying skills.

10.00am to 5.00pm, Advance tickets £5 per person, On the gate tickets £10 per person.

Just Flight and Flight 1 Software, two of the UK's leading flight simulation software publishers, will be hosting this major gathering in association with PC Pilot magazine to show visitors the very best in desktop flying. Building on the success of last year's event, organisers are anticipating over 2,000 visitors will attend the one day show.

Visitors will be able to get hands on and fly the latest aircraft, check out the latest flight simulation hardware and chat with leading developers, publishers and other enthusiasts in addition to the many exhibitors at the show.

This show will take place in the Museum's Hangar 1 from 10am until 5pm, giving visitors plenty of time to enjoy the wide range of entertainment on offer. So whether you’re a veteran desktop pilot, flight simulation novice, or someone thinking of getting airborne in the virtual skies for the first time, there will be something for everyone to enjoy.
