Long Description:
This restored blue box was the first simulator. It was developed in 1927 by Edwin A. Link. This small stationary trainer provides critical practice in essential aircraft control. During World War II an estimated half-million pilots learned aircraft control in this blue box trainer. Thousands of lives and many millions of dollars have been saved by this training. Today, more advanced systems are being used.
