Fleet Air Arm Museum – Nowra-Flight Simulator

I find sides where you can book a flight simulator in Nowra but they never say where in Nowra it is so i thought it might be in the museum.

Does anybody know if that is the case and has anybody done it before?

Thanks for your help

Sorry, I don't know about Nowra, but I remembered seeing a story about one at Darling Harbour on a travel show.

Thanks for that. I saw that one as well but the one in Nowra is cheaper

and if it would be in the museum my husband could look at the aircrafts as well so in the end it would be more fun for him

Thanks for the link. It mentions the simulator is located in "the museum main hangar" so it sure sounds like the Fleet Air Arm Museum is the likeliest. I couldn't find anything on either their old or new websites though.

I'm really intrigued now. We haven't been to the museum in many years and have always intended to go back again as they had plans for expansion. Hopefully someone will know something.

Thanks so much for your help MacKnee

Due to "the museum main hangar" i thought about the museum and just like you i didn't see anything on either side.

Maybe someone might know more.

Hi MacKnee

I went ahead and book the simulator flight now in Nowra and it is indeed in the museum.

Av8.Biz Flight Simulation Centre is located at Australia ’ s Museum of Flight - 489a Albatross Road, Naval Air Station, Nowra Hill NSW.

At the moment i can't tell you more as my husband hasn't done it yet.

Just thought i let you know

Hi McKnee

My husband did the simulator flight now and it was at the museum.

It was a great experience for him.My 2 kids and I were alowed in as well and while my husband was 'flying' we were able to jump in and out of the 'passanger seat' for a while.

Since he knows about model planes as well the instructor put him in as advanced.He did a few landings and take offs and some other great stuff and at the end the instructor was flying round with him in true Top Gun style.

After my husband finished there was already someone else waiting for his turn.

He also enjoyed the museum as well.I think he spend another 1-1 1/2 hours looking around.

It certainly worth doing.

Hi Starsparkle,

I am looking at giving the gift voucher for the flight experience to my husband as well. Did your husband do it on the weekend and is it hard to book for weekend? Also any recommendation where to stay (we are travelling down from Sydney to Nowra). Thanks.
