Cockpit Tours

Our special cockpit experience tours give you an opportunity to sit in the pilot’s seat of some classic aircraft in the Museum’s collection. You’ll be accompanied by a knowledgeable guide. You can choose from any of the following aircraft:

  • Macchi MB326H jet trainer flown by the RAAF
  • DHC-4 Caribou transport aircraft flown by the RAAF
  • Douglas C-47 transport aircraft flown by the RAAF
  • Fokker F27 flown originally by DCA and then by CSIRO Division of Cloud Physics

Your guide will show you the cockpit instruments, controls and basic operation of the aircraft. This is a rewarding experience that will provide lasting memories.

The tour cost is $30 per person per aircraft for 30 minutes. If two people want to sit in the same aircraft at the same time, the cost is $50 for both (30 minutes total). All four of the above aircraft have two seats in the cockpit.

Please note this is in addition to the normal entry fee.
