Historic Space Systems designed and fabricated these general aircraft simulators for NASA Glenn Research Center (at top), Discovery Center of  Rockford, Illinois and Great Lakes Science Center, Cleveland, Ohio.

The NASA Glenn simulator is a new design featuring wheelchair accessibility. Visitor Center staff rotate the seat out, allowing wheelchair users to fly the simulator.

Using the museum kiosk mode of Microsoft Flight Simulator, Historic Space Systems designed a panel layout and wired a customized switch interface to the computer.

The Discovery Center seat mounts amplified speakers to enhance the realism of the engine sounds. The scratch resistant canopy adds authenticity to the cockpit. A  handle above the glare shield assists visitors with getting in and out of the simulator seat.

The software controls the length of the simulation experience, and offers a menu of aircraft choices.
