Was bought 2 30mins as my 50th birthday present. I shared it with my best friend. I didn't know it was going to be in basically a shop with the noise of screaming kids outside. I wasn't aware there was a "back room" version or I would have chosen that. To be fair the guys were nice and pleasant in... More

Our family of four spent an afternoon flying with Captain Ross. It was one of the most memorable afternoons we have spent as a family. Our instructor, Ross, trains commercial pilots as well as nervous flyers (like me). It not only increased my comfort with flying, it was a treat to be able to sit behind my teenaged daughter and...

Took 2 x 11 yo boys who are both mad on flight on a Bank Holiday Monday. Westfield Centre was a nightmare - incredibly busy and the iPilot unit was not easy to find. Also, I found booking quite hard, as the person I spoke to on the phone did not have english as a first language - I'm not... More

I booked an hour "night flight" for an evening while I was in London on holiday. They did ask if I would like the cd\dvd and a picture, which I took being on vacation and all, but they didn't strike me like the types to stress out over a few pounds. I am a recreational pilot and found the graphics... More

We went to Ipilot on Friday evening. On arrival we were asked for our identification and voucher. I flew the simulator as a gift from my husband. We were both disappointed with the simulator itself, poor graphics and rather 'unreal'. The co pilot practically did all of the flying, allowing me only to push the odd button. A big push... More

I´ve walked past the flight simulator at Westfield many times, but finally decided to give a try. 50 GBP for 15 minutes was the price, and made it possible for a short flight between the largest cities and the Norwegian part of the Arctic, Tromsø and Alta. The instructor gave a short brief beforehand, and we were off. I enjoyed... More

Both my sons 10 and 14 enjoyed flying for 30 minutes each. Jordan was a super instructor. I would recommend a flying session as a present for any teenager (this was a birthday gift from their godmother). Fun even for the parents to watch !

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.
