Simulation business available to purchase

Ever dreamed of owning your own company? An incredible opportunity to own a flight and F1 car simulation business and its assets are now being offered for sale.

Real Simulation, which is currently based in Harrogate, has put the business, which included all the existing assets under the hammer. Should a buyer not be found, acting agents BPI Asset Advisory RICS, will be auctioning all assets individually via online auction with BPI Auctions.

The following assets would be included within the sale of the business:

– Boeing 737 200 Series Simulator on Hydraulic Motion Platform (Analogue Cockpit Dials)
– F4 Phantom Fighter Jet Simulator on Hydraulic Motion Platform
– 3/4 Size F1 Car Simulator
– Full Size F1 Car Simulator
– Trailer to transport Car simulators


The Formula 1 full-sized car is based on a 1982 design and was built as a show car for one of the teams, which was then converted into a sit-in and drive simulator and a pitstop challenge car, facilitating wheel changes against the clock. The vehicle could also be used as a show car, with various company corporate branding applied.

The F4 Phantom came from a MOD sale about 6 years before Real Simulation took over and it had been used as a procedural trainer by the RAF during the time that Phantoms were operational. Experts believe it is a F4J type of Phantom aircraft, which was an American version, with genuine aircraft fuselage and genuine controls inside.

The current owner, Adrian Martin, set up the business in 2005 after purchasing the Boeing 737 200 series (with the analogue cockpit dials) and an F4 Phantom fighter jet, both on motion platforms, for £88,520, before adding the full-size F1 car (bought for £40,000) to the roster in 2008.

The primary streams of revenue streams for the business include gift voucher experiences for the general public, as well as corporate team building days and exhibition magnets for other companies.

Andy Cromack, Director for BPI AA said: “We are thrilled to be able to offer such a unique proposition to our customers, as the purchaser will not only own the business but inherit the fantastic assets that come along with it. We anticipate a huge surge of interest for this amazing opportunity, so we recommend getting in touch as soon as possible if you think this business venture could be for you”.

BPI Auctions is requesting interest and proof of funding by 4pm on 29 July 2022.
