All are fitted with the latest Glass Cockpit Instrumentation (PFD/ND or EFIS). Fly the mountains around Salzburg or the waterways of Hong Kong. These simulators have trained thousands of professional pilots over the years. (They are not replica simulators like many on offer). Now it's your turn to sit where they did and learn the tricks of the trade. Welcome on board. Captain Chris Rigby (Chief Pilot FSM) « less

One of the most enjoyable and memorable experiences of my life. Right from the moment we arrived we were greeted with smiles and friendly pilots and instructors who instantly made you feel welcome and 'at home' The pre-flight briefing was not what I expected at all , I just expected to sit there listening to someone drone on about push...

This is the second time I have visited Coventry Aeroplane Club, my first experience was in the 737 for half hour which was also very good. The power point presentation give you information on how a plane flies etc, which is very useful to those who have no experience of real or simulator flying. This time I chose to do... More

A most enjoyable experience donated by my family as a birthday present. Having undertaken this experience I am keen to repeat it at my own expense. The whole trip from the induction on P.C. to the actual flying i n a genuine 737 in the capable hands of Captain Josh as instructor was first class and highly recommended. Thanks to... More

What a morning... flying over the mountains of Salzerberg landing in La Rochelle on the west coast of France. It was so good learning about all the controls and actually taking control of a 200 tonne plane. Josh was a great co pilot and was helpful patient and encouraging. I have already recommended to my friends.

18/07/14. What a great 60th birthday present. What can i say thats not already been said? Go for the hour with motion if you can, It is worth every penny. Everybody was so professional, My CoPilot,Josh was brilliant, if you make a mistake, its not the end of the world, Only used The Hangar Cafe Bar for coffee which was... More

My husband had an hour in the 737 with motion and I sat in to watch. He thought the experience was fantastic, and appreciated Josh's instruction. With his guidance, my husband was thrilled to land at the old Hong Kong airport. He'd had a half hour on 747 about a year ago which he enjoyed, but this was even better,... More

My dream has always been to become a commercial airline pilot, and FSM has really made me realise that! After having a photo taken (which annoyingly cost an extra £10) I was shown a very interesting 1/2 an hour video on how a plane operates, and although I was supposed to go in the Boeing 747 simulator, unfortunately it suffered...

The pre flight session was very interesting and you go through it at your own pace. The whole experience is very professional and with aircraft outside the door and Captains in uniform it felt like the real thing. Captain Chris Rigby led me in the Boeing 747 from Salzburg, across the snow capped alps and into the tricky Innsbruck airport.... More

Was so looking forward to the '747 experience' and was not disappointed!!! Exceeded expectations and now looking at doing the 737 one. Capt Chris Rigby was professional and courteous throughout and my wife and 2 children also had a go. Would strongly recommend these guys and hope to be back again very soon. The Kay family
