The first flight simulator in History. year: tags: Cockpit 10 miles description: Francisco J. Campos reports: "in December 1927, the first commercial flight between Barcelona and Madrid for Spanish Airline Iberia took place with a huge success. This gave Doctor Andreu a great idea: create a ride for his park imitating a plane flight. He commissioned the construction of a replica from that plane, a German-made Rohrbach Roland able to transport 10 people and its crew. The plane was hanging from an elaborate crane rig, allowing it to fly in a circle pattern, powered by its own propeller. Since the whole contraption was placed in top of the mountain, and "flew" over open space, the passengers had the exact feeling of a real flight over the city."
