The Emirates Aviation Experience, which cost in excess of €4.6 million, will take visitors on an interactive journey into the world of flight. In a UK first, it will include four commercial flight simulators under one roof including two A380s and two 777 aircraft. Further attractions include a 3D hologram of the internal mechanisms of an aircraft, an HD video-wall and a full-size nose-cone and flight deck of an A380.
The Emirates Aviation Experience is open to the public daily from 08:00hrs to 19:00hrs. It is located at the Greenwich Peninsular end of the Emirates Air Line cable car. The closest underground station is North Greenwich.
In addition to the ‘Flight Simulators’ zone, the Emirates Aviation Experience incorporates several other features that will take the user on a truly interactive aviation journey. Visitors will be able to look at a cross-section of a Rolls Royce Trent 800 jet engine partially built in LEGO, a virtual wind tunnel application looking at how this influences flight, a touchscreen game explaining the turnaround process of an aircraft, and a replica A380 Economy Class seating area – with a range of aviation themed videos utilising Emirates’ ice system. In addition, the Emirates Aviation Experience will also include a food and beverage outlet and retail zone.
