The construction of the new Flight Arena is well underway and is on schedule. A time-lapsed video of the construction so far, can be viewed here.
10×5 Wind Tunnel
The control rooms and instrumentation network are being installed at present. The tunnel will be complete by Christmas 2016/17 and commissioning will begin in January 2017.
The company XESA have been selected as the chosen supplier for the new full-motion Flight Simulator. The simulator will be housed in a dedicated simulator laboratory which is being constructed as part of the AMP phase 4 works.
Wind Tunnels T1 and T2
Both wind tunnels have arrived at Imperial and have been built. They are located in CAGB 203. The room in which they are housed will now be handed back to the main AMP contractor who will complete the services and functions of the lab. The lab and tunnels will be handed over to Aeronautics in July 2017.
