Flight Simulators Midlands are delighted to offer you a thrilling experience on board a real B737-800 motion simulator or a Boeing 747-400 Jumbo Jet simulator with simulated motion or an Airbus A320 real aircraft, converted into a simulator. All are fitted with the latest Glass Cockpit Instrumentation (PFD/ND or EFIS)and the latest graphics available. 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. We highly recommend a full hours flight time to get the best from your visit. Welcome on board. Captain Chris Rigby (Chief Pilot FSM)

Just got back from a fantastic afternoon at the flight simulator Midlands, from the moment you arrive you are made to feel welcome and relaxed by all the members of staff, for anybody that as the slightest interest in flying this is an experience to be missed. After a 30 minute briefing in which you watch a video of all... More

If ever I had bucket list this would be right at the top What. an experience can't thank the pilot Al enough for being so patient with me even though I nearly demolished half of Salzburg and the Austrian Alps would highly recommend this even if the two hundred or so passengers behind me would rather I didn't Thanks again

Well done Fred. Glad you enjoyed the trip. Do come again and try the 747, the JUMBO. You can demolish the whole of Salzburg with that one!! - Captain Chris Rigby More

Just returned from a flight on the 737 simulator. This was an extremely enjoyable experience (still not stopped smiling yet). I took my wife along for the ride and although she's a bit pessimistic and a fully paid up technophobe, she told me she really enjoyed it and would certainly do it again. (might even get her flying yet). We... More

I had a very informative and well explained hour in the 737 simulator.Take off and landing at Salzburg and the Hong Kong former airport was particularly good as we had landed at the latter some years ago and it brought back memories. Alistair was very helpful and patient and I throughly enjoyed the experience

Thanks John. Alistair is a current SFO on the 737 and it's always nice to have the latest input from our instructors. Glad you enjoyed it and do come again and maybe try the big bird - the 747. The JUMBO !! - Captain Chris Rigby More

This flight simulator is certainly an experience. It was brilliant. Especially the 737. If you book this, you need to book it in motion. It is so realistic and the pilot (Pete Green) was very friendly, and we were offered complimentary drinks.

Hi Craig. Glad you enjoyed it and yes the motion does add that little bit extra. I think you will find we are very good value when you consider the cheapest other motion simulator in this country is around the £500 / hour mark. We are less that half that price. Do come again - Captain Chris Rigby More

Flew the 747! What a fantastic experience. Vic soon had us fuelled up and underway really quickly. The half hour preflight briefing is really informative and consequently as soon as you are in the cockpit you really are ready to fly! Switching between hands on as well as autopilot was great as this prevents grey matter overload and when on... More

My brother-in-law and I got given this experience day as a Christmas present. Neither of us have any flying experience so we came in as total novices, but we had a short briefing to explain the basics of flying a plane. It was really interesting to gain an insight as to what keeps a plane in the sky. We had... More
