F16 simulator Boxmeer
Flying in an F16 is not for everyone. Very few pilots have ever had the chance to fly themselves in a Lockheed F16 Fighting Falcon or other jet fighter. But we have good news for you!
F16 pilot for a day
You can now experience for yourself what it is like to fly an F16 in this lifelike flight simulator. The large screen around you and the completely reconstructed cockpit make you feel like a real F16 pilot for a day. All buttons and instruments are in 1:1 scale. Not only that, everything works too. And the simulator is equipped with "shakers". These transmit the vibrations you would normally feel when flying and taxiing to the sticks. The G-suit that you get to wear is inflated so that we can simulate the enormous G-forces that you would experience during a real flight.
You will find this fantastic flight simulator in Boxmeer, in the easternmost part of Noord-Brabant. For the pilots and flight fanatics among us: that's between Volkel Air Base (EHVK) and Niederrhein/Weeze (EDLV).
What are you going to do?
You will get a briefing about the basics of flying an F16. The instructor will answer the most important questions: what are all the buttons, lights and other instruments for? Of course you can also ask any questions you may have. If you bring someone with you, he/she can of course attend the introduction too. Then you both know what you are going to experience 'in the air'. You do not have to pay extra for this.
This explanation will take about 10 minutes.
Then you step into the simulator. Of course, you will get a full explanation of how to operate the stick, throttle and pedals. We start simple, of course. Depending on your own wishes and any previous knowledge, we can make it a bit more exciting. Everything, of course, at your own pace. You do not need any previous knowledge. Flying this F16 is possible from the age of 12!
After your flight you will go through the most important points together with the instructor. In this debriefing the instructor summarises the flight lesson and gives tips and tricks for next time.
Unlike many of our other packages, the maximum altitude is a little lower. Please be aware of this. You will fit up to about 1.85m in the cockpit. Some flexibility with boarding is also required.
