Flight Lab

Scheduled Times - Level 4

Capacity is temporarily reduced to prevent the spread of COVID-19


Flight Lab uses real-world mission scenarios to teach standards-based STEM concepts. The lab contains 13 flight simulator stations where participants use Oculus Rift VR headsets as they learn how communicate and work as a team while piloting an aircraft.

Missions are designed to be experienced with a teammate who will act as a copilot, controlling various aspects of the aircraft to assist the pilot - however the Open-Flight missions can be controlled by a single pilot.

VR headsets are sanitized after every use. Our team works hard to ensure that every guest has a fun and safe experience in the lab.
