'Fly Victor' …

The Mission – should you decide to accept it?

Would you, a family member or close friend love to be in command of an icon of British aviation history?

You can help us deliver another classic full-cockpit simulator by supporting flight time to be redeemed with vouchers in 2020. Ideal as a treat for yourself or as a gift for someone special - whatever the occasion - fully transferable and valid all the way through to 31st December 2020.
It will be just like flying the real thing!  

We need your help to achieve £48,000 of an identified funding shortfall in order to deliver this new and exciting Cold War experience. Donate to support 'Fly Victor' during this campaign and when we reach the target, we will send out vouchers that can be redeemed once we are underway and open. These are discounted to normal rates as a ‘thank-you’ for helping build the experience.
If we don't, you get a full refund from this site, so there is no risk.

With prices ranging from £85 through to £850 for a full corporate day for 8 people, there is something for everyone. See our various packages in the right-hand column. 

We are also looking for a title sponsor who will be associated with this project and featured in our premises, and all final branding, promotional materials, website and social media, then at airshows in 2020 and 2021.

1-year package = £5,000 or a 2-year package = £8,000
(We reserve the right to vet the type of product/s or services/s any such sponsor sells to ensure they meet the expected standards of our audience).

We will track progress on our social media channels, not only while Crowdfunding but during the build stage too.  

Here is one we prepared earlier - The Vulcan Flight Experience!
We hope you will come with us on this exciting journey - should we say, flight! 

The far more complex Victor cockpit!

Is this a mission you wish to accept? Then do please, read on …

'Fly Victor' is literally what it says on the tin… you (or a gift voucher recipient/relative/friend or work colleague you nominate), can fly in a 1:1 full-scale replica cockpit of a Handley Page Victor aircraft in a fixed-base simulator format to be built as part of a new Cold War aviation experience, right next to RAF Cosford.

With accurate reproduction of the Victor environment, complete with avionics and controls of the period, a top-grade audio-visual system, worldwide scenery database and vibration plate technology mixed with other supporting effects, you will soon be lost in a world of realistic flight missions in this iconic aircraft – a marvel of post-war British aviation design.

This Cold War warrior was the last of the British V-Force aircraft to make its maiden flight and was the most technically advanced of the three. It was also the last to retire from RAF duties in 1993. Unlike modern-day aircraft with their computer systems, this simulator will offer real ‘seat-of-your-pants’ flying in a cockpit that uses traditional analogue avionics and systems that will really give you a feel for flying a large, but agile, 4-engined Cold War aircraft. This is no computer game - it's as real as it can get to flying a Victor - safely!

'Fly Victor' will be built by the same team (seen above in XM715) at Virtual Aerospace that brought the Vulcan Flight Simulator to Manchester. (featured video above) This has proved highly successful and has a long waiting list. 'Fly Victor' will add another of the V-Force aircraft - some maintain the most futuristic of the three - to a Midlands location that is rich in aviation heritage, with a former WWII building right on the edge of RAF Cosford already reserved as the experience centre.

The RAF Museum and the National Cold War Exhibition are just 10 minutes away so this experience will make the ideal two-stop adventure for aviation enthusiasts or the general public, alike. The rewards are based on the various flight times that will be available and represent a 30% saving from the rates that will be published on the website once open. It gives supporters and donors to this project a discount for their superb and highly valued support. A family and friends package for 4 people or a 'challenge day' for between 4 to 8 people is also available. 

As the build time is 6 months, the 'Fly Victor' attraction is scheduled to open in January 2020, with all gift vouchers given as rewards valid until 31st December 2020. On successful completion of fundraising, applicable time vouchers will be posted to all donors, with on-going updates given by email (if provided), or on our website and social media channels. See: www.fly-victor.uk or our Facebook and Twitter feeds. Do please follow us for updates.

________________________________________________

As with all Crowdfunding projects on this platform, if we fail to reach our first target, you will receive a full refund for the pledged donations made. Your gift voucher reward is therefore secure - as monies will only be released to us for the experience once we have sufficient financial resources to complete the build.

To help everyone who supports us, the more you can tell others of this limited time offer - the better. Under the rules of this crowdfunding platform, we have to cover our needs or we do not move forward with the project.
