We’re hugely honoured that the latest issue of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Club Journal features an article about their AuthentiKit equipped Spitfire MkIX simulator. The article describes the evolution of the simulator from a PR and STEM device to providing critical training for new and experienced Spitfire pilots in emergency procedures.
A key event for the BBMF’s newest Flying Training Device (FTD) was on April 14th this year, which was the BBMF Fighter pilot pre-season ground training day. It was a huge success and demonstrated the potential of the FTD as an ongoing training device.
The image below was taken on April 14th, showing BBMF fighter pilots Flt Lt Giles Croft (left) and Sqn Ldr Mark ‘Disco’ Discombe discuss proceedings whilst Sqn Ldr Mark Long
flies the Spitfire Flying Training Device “simulator” in the BBMF hangar, with Hurricane LF363 beyond.
