The Flight Simulator Centre – Newcastle are proud to offer both a Supermarine Spitfire MKIX and Messerschmitt BF109K This is a totally unique experience, as near to the real aircraft as you can get! Just flying one of these aircraft is a challenge in itself yet alone engaging in Air to Air or Air to Ground combat. Spitfires are notoriously tricky to handle on the ground, but an absolute dream to fly in the air. These Spitfire sessions will give you an amazing insight into the skill and workload involved in piloting such an incredible war bird. With so much power in that supercharged engine and the weight of the aircraft, just keeping her flying straight and level is a challenge.

Many variants of the Spitfire were built, using several wing configurations, and it was produced in greater numbers than any other British aircraft.
