  • On the turf of some equipment can hop, there is fun. Spread had lunch there with small children. Facilities of the real cockpit, is authentic.

  • I think that fun place if you like airplanes. Indoor exhibits large aircraft model, engine and cockpit. Also, the outdoor exhibits including the YS-11 and helicopter. To see airplane takeoffs and landings because it is located on the edge of A runway, just around the corner. However, if you go with the car other than going by bus from the nearby train station and Narita Airport and is a little inconvenient.

  • What flying is like (fly the airplane than ones in General) I wanted, I went alone. First bus from Narita Airport was unusually going by taxi about 2000 yen, was surprised. Exhibition of so-so is where I went. They decided time is experience-based and not accepted at that time did not. Miss once, so don't do it frequently and have equivalent time until next time it a little frustration. Did not experience type after all! Spider webs or dirt is conspicuous exhibits out of helicopters and airplanes, so the number is so very disappointed. Can't seem to ride only when the event was in the cockpit. I want to improve very cockpit also further. I have high expectations because overall sense of disappointment was great.
