My brother and I had a joint birthday experience here through Groupon. We had an hour's flight each, divided into 30 mins each and swapping. Whole family (two parents) in the cockpit which was nice. Just as well I didn't choose to be a pilot as it turns out I was rubbish, though I did the landing at Kai Tak... More

I was given an hour in the simulator as a Christmas gift and thoroughly looking forward to the day. We arrived early and were greeted by very friendly staff. During the briefing the instructor went through my experience (a few hours in FSX and X-Plane) and asked what I wanted to achieve out of the hour. As I just wanted... More

I rarely write feedback on experiences, but felt on this occasion I must. From start to finish Jamie was a fantastic host and coach. He was excellent at answering our questions, offered us to "fly" from any destination and was therefore equally very interested in one of our chosen airfields in South America - which at 16K feet was one...

Had a 1 hour session in the 737NG and loved every minute of it. Got there a little early but that was no problem, staff were friendly and chatty. My instructor Jamie was great, could ask a whole bunch of questions and was happy to answer anything. You can choose whatever you want to do and wherever you want to... More

This was a surprise 60th birthday treat from my family. I couldn't have asked for anything better! I had a Private Pilot's licence that expired about 30 years ago but the trainer (Dean), a First Officer on the B737, soon had me 'flying' again. He was keen to share his enthusiasm for the B737NG and answer any questions we had.... More

This was a Christmas present from the good lady and it was great fun. From arriving at the location we were met by Lee who my flight instructor and all through the experience Lee was brilliant. He explained everything really clearly and was very interesting to talk to about the aviation industry he also included the good lady sitting behind... More

Superb people to deal with throughout. I had a one hour simulator experience and loved every second of it. A friend and I flew into sywell, on arriving I had a call to say that they were running 15mins ahead of schedule if I came earlier I could get started. On entering the building we were greeted by two big... More

Pleasant and welcoming staff made my birthday present of a 90 minute session in the 737 simulator with Paul a time to remember! It is very easy to become totally immersed with events and is a welcome change from the small screen on my home pc system!!! At the end of the session it is quite a shock to return... More
