Today we were very proud to welcome members and partners of the Royal Marines Association of Norwich to both Sim-Fly Norfolk and Sim-Fly Combat, followed by a visit to St George’s Whisky at East Harling.
Here is Graham in Guy Gibson’s Dambuster Avro Lancaster – unfortunately the starboard outer engine suddenly burst into flames so we had to land at a nearby airfield – but a great landing for a non flyer, with his Flight Engineer nursing the engines, putting the gear and flaps down – just like in the real world.
But all very safe.

Fraser had a go at flying a Spitfire over his home on the North Norfolk coast – a really good effort. A great way to check out the golf courses of Sheringham and Cromer or even hunt for a nice neighbourhood to live in!
The action can be stopped by a click of a button.
The machine guns on the Spitfire are particularly effective as the seat actually vibrates – much more than normal…
Our Royal Marine Association contact Lieutenant Colonel (Retd.) Mark Rundle then entertained us all at the St George’s English Whisky Distillery at East Harling, where he acts as a guide. Superb tour and a wee whisky to try as part of the visit!
We recommend a guided tour where there is a wonderful restaurant, click here for details.
If you have a group of people interested in flying – please do get in touch with us for a bespoke group visit.
Our Sim-Fly Combat is proving to be a huge success where anyone can learn the basics of flying on our main simulator and progress into the Spitfire and Messerschmitt cockpits, where they can try and shoot each other down or reinact the Battle of Britain.
We are open six days a week from Tuesday – Sunday inclusive, from 0900-1700.
