Undergraduate students piloting and co-piloting the flight simulator in engineering labs

Aerospace Engineering Facilities

With our ALSIM AL250 the (virtual) sky's the limit

Here at UoN you’ll be studying a course that prepares you for your career whilst meeting other people passionate about engineering. You’ll use facilities that have real-world applications, allow for a varied learning environment, and even give you hands on experience with tools that are used in industry.

Used in several different modules, our ALSIM AL250 flight simulator has the capability of supporting bespoke flight models – something most UK university flight simulators can’t do. This makes it suitable for research projects and research-led teaching as well as taught labs.

You’ll also be able to access our flight simulator as part of extra-curricular sessions led by our aerospace students with piloting experience, either for recreation or as background to more formal training experience. It’s your chance to take to the virtual skies and pilot your own plane!
