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

The perfect present for someone who likes planes....and absolutely fascinating as a passenger! Great staff who get the pilot involved from minute one. Would definitely recommend an hour so you get the practice....and look out for the offers. I got mine half price through amazon local. Seen the comments about the background noise...but to be honest.....I was so absorbed in... More

I haven't been flying too much of computer simulators. I loved this! Important part was real cockpit with all the controls, how difficult it was to keep controlling those few things, tried night-time with meters only, thunderstorm etc. Naturally would be cool to have hydraulic one but checked those and that's totally different price range. Some said it bothers to... More

I was given the 15 minute experience "Flight" as a gift by my wife. Being an aviation nut, this was a logical choice. I've had the opportunity of an introductory flying lesson at our local light aircraft airport, and thoroughly enjoyed it, but being able to fly in something bigger, is restricted to highly trained pilots, so the gift of...

I bought a 30minutes simulator session as a birthday present for my husband. This had been advertised as a flight simulator session in which you can learn to take off and land a plane from a choice of 1000's of airports. We were very disappointed to find that the simulator was very basic with three screens in front of two... More
