It's a fun experience and should try if you want to get a hint of what happens in the cockpit. I took off and landed at couple airports. Choice available for any airport in world.

I Pilot is tucked away in the Westfield shopping centre, Shepherd's Bush, get the tube to the Bush and Westfield is on your left. There is much to do there from just shopping to having a very good meal. I bought this on a voucher from Groupon, ensuring you book in advance. We turned up, you will need photo ID... More

My son did a session with ipilot today and enjoyed himself immensely! The pilot was very polite and patient and definitely knew his stuff! We flew half way around the world and never left the ground! Vouchers can be bought as gifts and there are sometimes offers available. Worth a visit!

I took a half hour "flight" which was a present from my son using a Red Letter Days voucher. The booking and check in process were smooth. The flight itself was supervised by a professional pilot who explained the procedure and controls. It was interesting to see how the take-off and landing process works and the controls. The visual experience... More

I bought this package for my son and his two friends to have a 90minute flight in a 'simulator' used by professional pilots ..... Well! Anyone thinking about paying for this experience please DONT! It's a complete waste of time and frankly you would have more pleasure spending your money on a chocolate bar! It's just a box in the... More

I had the 1 hour session. I had never done anything similar before. It is brilliant. The qualified pilot staff take you through the controls step by step and before you know it you are flying a Boeing 737. Fantastic experience!

Went here with my kids. The fact they were bored after a few minutes says it all. Simulation should be used in loosest terms. Cons: -You press literally 2 buttons and move the steering wheel. That's it! -Graphics are terrible and resemble an old commodore Amiga. There are better graphics on my phone. -The cockpit is open for everyone to... More

I have to admit that this was one of the best flight simulators I have ever been to! Great for beginners and experts alike. The staff are very friendly, the instructors are actually real pilots, that have first hand experience in flying. The condition of the flight simulator is wonderful. The pilots also know a lot about the planes themselves,... More

Just returned from a Flight Sim Experience with iPilot at Westfield and it really is an experience you should try at least once. Any one with half an interest or fascination with Aircraft and Flying should try it. It is quite expensive but well worth it. I recommend you find as much info on the web regarding 737 instruments panels... More
