Simulatorer

 

Museet har sex simulatorer:
- J 35J Draken från Flygvapnet (J 35:an är för tillfället stängd för översyn)

- JAS 39 Gripen (som även är anpassad för rörelsehindrade gäster)

- Convair 440 Metropolitan från SAS

- McDonnell Douglas DC-10 från Scanair

- Airbus A320 (Håll koll på onlinebokningen vilka söndagar som är bokbara)

- Link-trainer - en klassiker från 1920-talet

 

Simulatorerna är i första hand avsedda att ge dem som inte har någon tidigare erfarenhet som piloter en realistisk upplevelse av hur det är att spaka ett berömt flygplan och att visa hur arbetet i cockpit går till.

 

Västerås-företaget TV021 har sammanställt denna lilla film från vår simulatoravdelning:

de Havilland D.H. 112 NF 2 Mk 51 NF 51 Venom

J 33 in the Swedish Air Force

The first jet aircraft in the Swedish Air Force intended for "night interception." The aircraft was manufactured at the two Havilland factories in England and is a further development of the Vampire. It has a similar body with two tail bars and straight wings. The front body is made of laminated wood and multilayer veneer with balsa-wood filling. The engine, the Ghost, is a further development of a famous de Havilland radial turbine engine, Goblin, in time-typical single-stream design without afterburner. It is the same engine that came into use in the J 29 Tunnan and which was licensed by Flygmotor under the designation RM 2A.

The aircraft is equipped with radar PS-20 / A respectively. PN-53 / A.

60 aircraft were ordered to the Air Force, the last of which was delivered in 1954. One aircraft, 33014, crashed in 1953 at Chester, U.K. before delivery. All 59 machines received camouflage painting and J 33 was part of F1 wings night intercepting squadrons.

 

It turned out that several modifications became necessary: NF 2 modif. to NF 2a. In order to get rid of certain restrictions on maneuverability and speed register, several rebuilds were required, including rudder changes, as well as modified hoods to facilitate jumping. (No catapult seat!). In addition, radar altimeter PH-10 / A was added.

 

The aircraft type was used by several Air Forces around the world and was also manufactured under license in Switzerland. Also found in an all-weather Navy variant with i.a. reinforced landing gear "Sea Venom".

Four Venoms served with Swedish Flygtjänst AB as target tower after the FV period. These were eventually repainted with yellow which was typical for the target tower aircraft. In the museum we have the individual with production no. c / n 12364, delivered in 1953 with aircraft no 33015 in the Air Force - since 1958 target tower in the Swedish civil registry as SE-DCA at RFN Vidsel. Wreck 1963, discarded 1969.

Then as object for fire practice.
