Note: Visitors are permitted to sit in this cockpit.

The F-16 flight simulator is an accurate reproduction of an F-16 cockpit. It was used to train pilots in procedures and techniques without the cost and hazards of practicing in an aircraft. Emergencies could be set up for the pilot to recognize, practice and overcome that would not be possible or practical in actual flight.

This simulator was built by the Singer-Link Co. in May 1985 and was used by the 55th Fighter Squadron at Shaw Air Force Base, S.C.
