Our son (age 13) received this as a Christmas present from his favourite uncle.. and what a gift! The instructor (? Adrian) was fantastic.. supportive and attentive, and our son was delighted by the whole experience. This is not inexpensive (but then this is London), but well worth the money for a special occasion. Plan in advance.

It's a good job that I don't live closer to London as I might be spending quite a bit of money here. A gift from my daughter for Christmas gave me a 15 minute experience on the 737 flight simulator. Pilot Tony was attentive, pleasant and keen to teach. I have a lifelong love of flying and this met all... More

An excellent hour behind the controls - Adrian the instructor was extremely patient and gave great hands on tuition to make the experience as realistic as possible. I thoroughly enjoyed it and was well worth doing it. As for Adrian at White City Westfield as he is a commercial pilot and very enthusiastic and really good tutor

Received a sixty minute flight in the I pilot simulator for a Christmas present. The experience was very enjoyable and educational. My instructor, who was a fully qualified commercial pilot, took me through the flight deck controls and then talked me through take off and landings to and from various airports of my choice. The simulator is static but as... More

My wife bought me this for Christmas and I was looking forward to it. The experience is quite good but what I did not enjoy was being given what can only be described as the bums rush. The literature from Ipilot clearly said that I would have a half hour instruction followed by a half hour flying making it a... More

Until you are put in the seat to have a go yourself, you just don't realize how switched on you really have to be to become a commercial pilot, I knew it would be hard (my first time) but the guys are really friendly and help put you as ease straight away. They help every step of the way so... More

I have done simulators at Flight Experience Bangkok, Emirates Flight experience London and this one being the third - and the most disappointing. The autopilot and rudders did not work. There was no approach data available for any airport other than Heathrow and the simulator environment was not as realistic as what I experienced with Flight Experience in Bangkok. The... More

I had a flight at ipilot just over a week ago. The instructor was great (forgotten her name) but that was the only part of the experience that was. The simulators are old and dusty, the majority of the dials don't work. I have some basic flying knowledge and one of the dials came off when I tried to change... More

We are an open plan concept simulator experience. People can walk in and observe and fly an airliner simulator. Unfortunatelly due to fire regulations we are unable to close the doors. Thank you for bringing to our attention that the cockpit appeared dusty. We will address this issue immediatelly. More

My Wife and I booked a half hour session each. We arrived at the shop to find it was quite open, but once we got started we forgot about our surroundings completely. Ross, a qualified pilot, took us both through the orientation together to save time, and then we were off. During our sessions we learned basic controls, did a... More
