BBMF Spitfire Simulator attends Project X

We recently took our Spitfire Simulator on the road for the very first time to RAF Waddington for the finale of Project X 2022 – a STEM event for Lincolnshire Schools.

Year 8 students from six schools took part in the event, where in teams of up to 10 students they were tasked with the design and construction of an aircraft that could deliver a delicate package containing fragile survival equipment to pilots in need.

Our simulator was integrated into the activities that took place during the finale event, giving students the chance to see what it is like to fly a Spitfire aircraft, however another special feature of our simulator was that it was built by our very own engineers and our sponsors, AuthentiKit, via 3D printing methods – another perfect example of how STEM activity meets the world of historic aircraft operation!
