Players enter an immersive environment — facing the screen and standing on the rondel to activate this intuitive experience. Authentic aircraft imagery takes centre stage as players fly a realistic rendering of the Canada Aviation and Space Museum’s Sopwith Ship Camel biplane. Moving their arms up and down, and tilting their bodies, players manoeuver an airplane onscreen — dodging enemy aircraft and aligning themselves to fire.

This flight experience is based on Ace Academy, an educational game produced by the Canada Aviation and Space Museum in partnership with SEED Interactive. The game features other aircraft from the Museum’s extensive First World War collection as it guides players through levels that explain how aircraft fly. Ace Academy and its sequel Ace Academy: Black Flight are available for free on the App Store and Google Play. These games complement the exhibit, extending players’ engagement and learning beyond the flight experience.
