Step into our Tornado Jet Cockpit Experience

Immerse yourself in the heart of aviation history by stepping into the cockpit of a Panavia Tornado GR4 fighter jet.


Reserved for special public events and external exhibitions with our volunteer events' team, this unique opportunity allows you to experience the thrill of immersing yourself or your family in a military jet fighter cockpit.

The Tornado GR.4, was a multi-role combat aircraft (we've the full size original in the hangars too — ZG771), played a pivotal role in British military operations for nearly three decades.


Its cockpit, features a tandem seating arrangement, with the pilot at the front and the navigator/weapons officer behind.

Its stark, utilitarian interior is dominated by a multitude of controls, dials, and displays. Meticulously arranged to provide the pilots with the information they needed to navigate the skies and execute their missions for the RAF.

Imagine the surge of adrenaline that would course through your veins as you engage afterburners and break the sound barrier.


Feel the rumble of the engines vibrate through the fuselage and the wind whipping past as you soar through the clouds!

By allowing you to sit in the front seat, we hope to inspire a new generation of aviation enthusiasts and foster a deeper appreciation for the technological marvels that have shaped our world.

Don't miss your chance to experience the Tornado GR.4 cockpit in person.
