EAA Aviation Museum: Virtual Cockpit Tours

Each year, aviation enthusiasts from around the world gather in Oshkosh, Wisconsin for the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA)'s AirVenture air show and exhibition. While EAA is most famous for this event, the organization's aviation museum provides year-round flight-based fun. Readers may enjoy this virtual extension of the museum, which invites users to "climb into the airplanes in our museum virtually to see what it is like to be in the pilot's seat." Accessible on computers and phones (after downloading a free app from the Apple Store or Google Play), the tool takes users on a tour of the Eagle Hangar, with the opportunity to "hop into" several aircrafts along the way. Clicking on the "i" icon on the tour screen reveals additional information about these aircrafts, including their make, model, and maximum speed. Users can freely wander the virtual tour, or select a specific aircraft from the list on the main page. More than 50 aircrafts are included, such as a 1943 Boeing/Hughes Super Stearman and a 1960 EAA Biplane. Lyle Jansma of AeroCapture Images supplied the photographs for this project.
