Lawn by Building 2000

Ever wanted to jump in the cockpit and fly over the skies in an air ambulance?

Well, now’s your chance – sort of!

The Hampshire & Isle of Wight Air Ambulance team will be here on site at Lakeside in one of their charity vans which has been converted into a unique mobile flight simulator.  Your chance to take to the sky without even leaving Lakeside!

The Sim Van is an opportunity to experience flying the Air Ambulance.  Budding pilots can experience the thrill of flying a helicopter with realistic simulations of the physical, visual and auditory sensations of a real flight.

The team will set the runway for our local airport, and you can even fly over your home before landing.  Test your skills as a pilot and see if you have what it takes to complete an emergency mission.

The Sim Van is a unique flying experience suitable for those aged 11+ years.

If you’d like to have a go and find out more about the great work of the charity, pop along the lawn area in front of Building 2000 (where the street food stands are) on Thursday 7 September from 12 noon to 2pm.

Please book your spot on the My Lakeside occupiers app.

Come fly with us!
