The New England Air Museum’s full motion flight simulator –
called Redbird – puts you in the pilot’s seat to get the full experience of flying.
The 50 degrees of pitch, 40 degrees of roll and 60 degrees
of yaw, coupled with its 200- degree panorama visual, gives you the closest

Your flight can be a serene sightseeing flight in clear air,
or you can choose to fly in a range of weather conditions, including snow,
rain, fog, and even thunderstorms -- if you’re the adventurous type.
To schedule a Redbird experience, please call the NEAM front
desk at (860) 623-3305. The Redbird can be scheduled Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday with advanced notice, and other times upon request.
