Over the last four years, 2494 (Portishead) Squadron ATC have designed and constructed an impresive flight simulator. They restored the front fuselage of a crashed glider, and a computer screen was installed to show the instruments. It has been mounted facing a wall where a computer-based landscape is projected, using commercial flight-simulator software. The restoration of the glider fuselage and all of the design and installation of the computer equipment was done by the cadets, and the total cost was less than £3,500.
