August 1 – August 26
Saatchi Gallery, London SW3 4RY
Through in-depth research, and in partnership with the Royal College of Art and world-leading virtual realists, British Airways presents
BA 2119: Flight of the Future. A first-of-its-kind exhibition at Saatchi Gallery which seeks to push the boundaries of imagination and explore how future generations will circumnavigate the globe in a world of advanced jet propulsion, hyper personalisation, automation, AI, modular transport, sustainability, health and entertainment. We hope you enjoy it.
EXHIBITION ENTRANCE: FREE
VIRTUAL REALITY EXPERIENCE: £20
Immerse yourself in the evolution of flight through a first-of-its-kind interactive, multisensory virtual reality experience that traces humankind’s relationship with flight.
Built by multiple award-winning VR creators and an Oscar-winning practical effects team, Fly turns you into a time-travelling pilot, from the earliest imaginings of Leonard da Vinci and his ornithopter, to the Wright Brothers’ first successful attempt at Kitty Beach, to British Airways’ predecessor, Air Transport and Travel’s inaugural flight to Paris. Travel on Concorde before jumping to today’s A350 and onwards to a possible vision of the future of aviation.
Full motion 8 minute experience: £20 per ticket
The full motion Fly experience is set on a large motion platform which is unsuitable for pregnant users or users under 140cm in height. Not recommended for children under 10 years of age.
