Starting a Museum # 11
An e-mail popped up in the inbox the other day and a gentleman from Australia offered the museum a lot of simulator paraphenalia. We said thank you to the offer and he promptly shipped it off via surface mail to us.
We need more simulator material. Old photos of simulators, manuals, stories about you flying in a Link trainer and everything else related to flight simulation.
If you have anything in the attic or basement, let us know, we will if needed pay for the shipping, if there is enough money in the bank :-)).
Send us an e-mail at: email@example.com
On August 10th 2013 we moved our newest simulator from the BC Aviation Museum in Sidney BC to Boundary Bay Airport, Delta BC. where we have storage space in the Heritage Hangar courtesy of Alpha Aviation.
We had a total of 12 volunteers show up to help load and offload and the move went smooth.
According to the manual the Frasca 101 simulator is from 1976 and the simulator works, the Plotting Table is u/s We will start it up in September and see what we can do with it. as we are not a training facility but a museum the plotting table is not of the outmost importance, we will try and repair it so we have a fully functional piece of equipment.
The next piece for the collection will arrive on a flatbed truck and will need a crane to be offloaded.
