Flight Activities

Get Flying at The Museum of Flight

At The Museum of Flight, you don’t have to be a passive observer. You can try out our flight simulators, book our aviation learning programs, take a flight-seeing tour, or even arrive in your own plane!

Flight Simulators

Our all-new i360 flight simulators offer state-of-the-art motion control and high-performance visuals and sound. It is a fully interactive and intensely fun experience where a "pilot" and "gunner" can engage in simulated air combat via individual joystick controls and select from nine different prop and jet aircraft.

The 4D-X simulator seats 13 passengers, taking them on an exciting mission. Click here for more information about our simulators

Aviation Learning Center

Our Aviation Learning Center is great for school groups or corporate team building events. Learn the science of aviation, create a flight plan and then pilot your simulated aircraft. Click here for more info. 

Old Thyme Aviation

For the truly adventurous, you can board a real vintage bi-plane operated by Olde Thyme Aviation and see Seattle from the air. For more information on bi-plane rides contact Olde Thyme Aviation. Charges may apply. Visit their site for more info.

Fly-In for a Visit

Pilots interested in flying in for a Museum visit, please arrange for parking on our ramp by calling security at 206.768.7219 or by email. Pilots take note: Please be aware of your prop blast when arriving/leaving our ramp as there are often small, classic planes nearby.
