In this photo we see the earliest of ground simulators ( photo circa 1911 ). A student is seated in a “Tonneau d’
apprentissage”, or “Antoinette”, at the École de Pilotage [Antoinette Piloting School] at Mourmelon-le-Grande, France. Two
half-sections of a barrel were moved manually which represented the pitch and roll of an airplane. The student pilot was then required to line up a reference bar with the horizon.
Our Museum has been founded , we are moving in the right direction and will keep you posted on our status. A website is being built and we are currently in the process of filing for Charitable status so we can issue tax receipts (in Canada) for all donations.
If you have any material about Flight Simulation from the early days up to now and would like to donate it to us, please e-mail us: firstname.lastname@example.org
The North American Museum of Flight Simulation invites people of all ages and from all regions to explore the wonders of flight simulation. It will do this by collecting and displaying working and static Flight Simulators and their history, showing the significance—scientific and technical, as well as economic, that simulators have contributed to the North America and the worlds aviation industry.
