Link Flight Simulator - Dirigible R-34

Dirigible R-34

First Craft to Fly Both Ways Across the Atlantic

the Link

First Successful Device to Simulate Flight

First to fly round-trip across the Atlantic - the dirigible R-34 made history. The Link, too, is a famous "first" first to simulate flight on the ground with all the realism of a plane in the air. The Link enables the beginner to develop an instinctive handling of airplane controls, and to absorb the fundamentals of flight.

The Link shortens your pre-flight training period by reproducing actual Right maneuvers - teaches you how to bank, glide and climb; and how to avoid stalls. You even learn how to fly on instruments through darkness and "weather," knowledge which will prove a vital asset to your future airmanship. Link training has long been standard with the Air Forces and the airlines. If you intend to fly, the Link will give you greater safety, skill, and range in your private plane.
