Seattle Museum of Flight Gains Sopwith Camel Flight Sims

Visitors to WWI Exhibit Can Fly the Legendary Dogfighter

The Museum of Flight in Seattle, Washington recently obtained a pair of Sopwith Camel flight simulators, allowing attendees to experience the closest thing to the original today.

The sims were designed and built by local company one-G Simulation in collaboration with Cignatec, an education tech company. These simulators will be one of the jewels of the Museum's WWI exhibit, offering visitors an immersive flying experience in the iconic aircraft. Rather than push newbies through the usual flight training curriculum of a flight sim, the Sopwith Camels will give operators a range of scenarios to play with, reinforcing repeat attendance and fresh experiences.

"As a longtime resident of Seattle, it has been a pleasure collaborating with the Museum of Flight, successfully bringing the experience of flying a Sopwith Camel into the hands of the general public," said Xylon Saltzman, one-G simulation CEO. "With a unique merge of one-G’s present-day simulation technology paired with traditional craftsmanship techniques, this project pays homage to the bravery of the pilots who flew these legendary aircraft."

"As a long-time member of the Museum of Flight, and advocate for STEM education, supporting the museum with this project has been a privilege and a lot of fun — and of course, it's always great to work with one-G," said Josh Swanson, President of Cignatec.
