The Kansas Aviation Museum introduced four new fighter simulators.

"It's like playing a world's greatest video game," said retired US Air Force fighter pilot, Colonel Ed Sykes.

The four military flight simulators are synchronized to a network and complete with a live air controller.

"It's a really unique experience. There's nothing like it in Wichita," said Lon Smith, Kansas Aviation Museum executive director.

The simulators are a business partnership between the museum and local aviation firm Nu-Tek Aircraft Instruments, Inc.

"Our objective here is of course, to enhance the experience of the visitors here at the museum but it's also a way to generate revenue. So we can more effectively meet our mission as a museum," said Smith.

The Kansas Aviation Museum is located at 3350 S. George Washington Blvd. You can make reservations by calling (316) 683-9242 or clicking here.
