Fly the PCAM Flight Simulator

Have you ever dreamed of flying an F-15 Eagle? How about a P-51 Mustang or a Sopwith Camel?

The Pacific Coast Air Museum can provide the next best thing. Our flight simulator lets you get into the cockpit, take the controls, and fly a 3D virtual reality simulation of these and other planes.

It's a remarkably realistic experience and YOU can try it yourself!
