Musée de l'aviation militaire de Payerne

From the Vampire through Venom, Hunter, and Mirage III, to the F-5 Tiger, this display of high performance aircraft shows the rapid progress made in subject matters of aerodynamics, weapon systems or materials.
Located in Payerne, the main Air Force base of Swiss F/A-18 operations, the Museum of military aviation "Clin d’Ailes" shows the military aeronautics of the second half of the XXth century.
On demand, we organise guided visits or you could see the original Flight Simulator of the Mirage IIIS in action (www.clindailes.ch/downloads/mca_visite_ca.pdf). The Flight Simulation Center FSC organises initiations to the world of virtual flight (www.fscenter.ch)
