Always wanted to fly a plane, but don't know anyone with their own airline who can lend you one? Don't despair, because The 60 minute Flight Simulator Experience lets you experience all the thrills and challenges of piloting a Boeing 737 without actually leaving the ground. Your one-to-one instructor will talk you through every step of your 60 minute 'flight' and tailor his tuition to your level of flying experience. You'll find that being inside this state-of-the-art simulator is exactly like sitting in the cockpit of a modern commercial aircraft, with all the visuals and sound effects recorded from real planes during actual flights. You'll be able to choose from 24,000 destinations, pick the virtual time of your flight, and even the type of weather conditions you'll encounter as you guide the plane along its flight path. Up to two 'passengers' are welcome to share this experience, so invite friends or family members to brave the virtual skies along with you. A dream come true for aviation enthusiasts and armchair adventurers alike.
Need to Know
Having chosen between four locations, Shoreham-by-Sea, Bacup, Cheltenham or Sywell, you'll be welcomed on arrival and invited to relax in the waiting lounge until your appointed flight time. Before taking your seat in the simulator cockpit your instructor will lead you in a pre-flight briefing to plan your simulator experience. Once you've selected your departure and arrival airports, weather conditions and time of day, you'll be tutored by your instructor on taking off and setting course. You will then enjoy 60 minutes of 'flying' time before touching down, virtually of course, at your chosen destination. You'll be able to share the experience with up to two 'passengers', so take the opportunity to give friends or family a unique experience too.
