In order to align NAS Pensacola with security directives issued by the Secretary of the Navy, the air station commanding officer has directed that beginning February 1, 2016, all visitors to the National Naval Aviation Museum, Fort Barrancas and Pensacola Lighthouse who do not possess a Department of Defense identification card or are unescorted by the holder of a Department of Defense identification card, will be required to enter the installation via the West Gate located off Blue Angel Parkway.

Motion Based Simulator

The new and improved HD Motion-Based Simulator is a five-minute, multi-sensory experience that combines a movie-like audiovisual presentation using a high-definition projection screen and surround-sound, with the motion of the ride compartment. The fully enclosed simulator capsule, which accommodates up to 15 passengers, can move in six directions, allowing you to experience horizontal rolls, longitudinal pitches and vertical climbs.

There are two different rides you may choose from in our Flight Simulator. In the Blue Angels Simulation, riders experience flight in a Navy F/A-18 Hornet, including high-performance turns and maneuvers. Or you can take off from an aircraft carrier and do battle in the Iraqi desert in the Desert Storm Simulation.

Rides start every six to seven minutes and run continuously from 9 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. Look for discounts on combo packages that include Laser Powered Giant Screen Digital Theater movies and simulator rides. Passengers must be three years or older to ride the Motion-Based Simulator.
