HARS Flight Simulator Project

Illawarra Rotaract Club and the Historical Aircraft Restoration Society’s (HARS) Cockpit Hall project revolves around the adaptation and maintenance of real aircraft cockpits into working flight simulators. These simulators
will be unique and multi-dimensional with the project focussing on five objectives;


  1. The installation and maintenance of two advanced QANTAS made flight simulators.
  2. The conversion of an ex-military Sabre simulator to accept modern hardware.
  3. The development of a network to simultaneously host numerous simulators.
  4. The conversion of a Cobra gunship into a simulator. The ‘crown jewels’ of simulators, Cobra gunships are incredibly rare pieces of military hardware.
  5. Develop a fun, family experience for the public to enhance HARS’ status as a tourist attraction.


Once these objectives are achieved, the project group will start an organisation called the ‘Friends of the Cockpit
Hall’ which has a mandate to maintain and improve the simulators in the museum.
