Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum's New Fighter Ace 360 Flight Simulators

Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum recently introduced the Fighter Ace 360 Flight Simulators.

I recently attended an event where I got to experience the 360-degree, two-passenger flight simulator, and it was so much fun!

Visitors can choose from two simulated experiences - Thunder in the Pacific, where you take control and try to overcome your enemies, or Quantum Star Fighter, an outer space adventure in which the simulator is controlled via computer.

I tried out Thunder in the Pacific with my son, and we were quite steady during the five-minute challenge, as my son had control over the simulator a majority of the time. However, once I took control, we'd often move abruptly to one side or the other - it was a lot harder than I thought to maneuver!

We were unsuccessful in shooting down the enemy, but it sure was a fun experience.

It's even a lot of fun to watch other riders, especially as they scream while flipping over (you can watch them on an external screen; click here to watch a video).

Pricing for the Fighter Ace 360 Flight Simulator is $10.50 per person on a two-seater, or $21.00 per person to guarantee an exclusive solo flight.

Tickets are only available at the front desk, and are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Only 150 tickets are available per day.
I love that the Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum added the new Fighter Ace 360 Flight Simulators.  The Museum already has so much to share both aviation and history buffs, and the addition of this new experience is a welcome element to the overall visit.
