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

This experience is very worth while. the 45 minute presentation beforehand was very clear - a daunting array of knobs & screens! I had the "jumbo jet" simulator & flew out of Salzburg airport at dawn in spring - the graphics were really amazing & realistic. Landing was fun as I had to dodge an aeroplane flying out but Pete...

! hour is simply not enough to fully capture the fabulous enjoyment obtained from this flight simulator experience. Although I had previous experience of flying light aircraft, the 737 air liner was a very big step-up. My instructor was, Josh who knew the simulator inside out and made it quite easy to follow his guidance, especially during the approach and... More

From the initial call to the day itself I was very impressed by the friendly, helpful and professional attitude of the team. I am a flight simulator fan and so was really looking forward to experiencing a 'real' simulation. It was absorbing and exhilarating. Captain Chris Rigby was very clear in his instructions, very supportive and I felt proud of... More

Bought this as part of a Groupon offer. When I booked it I upgraded to an hour and paid for the hydraulics to be switched on as well. This is well worth it as time in the simulator goes in a flash. The hydraulics add an essential extra element of realism. Well organised visit with a photo souvenir for an... More

My husband booked this for my birthday and what a great experience - Josh was my instructor on the day and he was brilliant at explaining how everything worked - the hour literally flew in - so much so that I'll probably do it again!

My wife purchased a voucher for me as a present and I upgraded this to the full hour in the simulator. It obviously adds to the cost, but would recommend this as there is plenty to take in and the time goes very quickly. The team are very friendly and Chris was clearly very knowledgeable, and explained the steps very... More

A truly wonderful experience "flying" the 747 simulator. Learnt so much and the staff were great especially the instructor Josh. Has rekindled my interest in learning to fly and explore getting started on the route towards a private pilots license.
