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)

Had a great time.. Staff were brilliant !! Could have done another 2 hours in the sim very easily.. Get the motion add on for an extra few pound and you will get the best out of the experience.. I will be definitely having another go in the near future!

I have had three 1 hour sessions at Flight Simulator Midlands and can't praise the staff and venue highly enough. This is without doubt the next best thing to actually the airliner itself. Anyone with even the slighest interest in aviation will enjoy an hour flying one of these simulators. great fun.

I took the 90 minute option - a very comprehensive and useful 30-minute briefing followed by a 60-minute "flight". I had previously "flown" a B737 elsewhere, and was interested in learning about the differences in the 320, which uses a lot of different technology. My instructor, Matt, took me through a couple of take-offs and landings and was excellent in... More

Thanks Sandy. I'll pass on your remarks to Matt. Don't forget that we have a real 747 simulator too. That's a great trip with amazing round screen graphics. I had a lady fall out of the observer seat the other day, so convinced was she that we were airborne. - Captain Chris Rigby More

I received a flight in the 737 simulator for my birthday. Very interesting experience, made so much better by the clear, patient instructions given by my instructor Anthony. A quick flight around Salzburg then off to Hong Kong for a seat of the pants landing at the old airport. A superb experience I would recommend for everyone to have a... More

Had a fantastic time piloting an Airbus A320 around a virtual Salzburg with my instructor Matt. Makes you fully respect how much work is going on in the flight deck. But loved it.

Yes, the A320, which is a real aircraft cockpit back engineered into a simulator, is very good. We also offer Space Missions of the future in that machine. Come and try it out. I'll pass on your remarks to Matt. It's always nice to hear the guest has enjoyed the time. - Captain Chris Rigby More

Very friendly and welcoming people. Dave my instructor really does all he can to make sure you get the most out of your session. It's worth paying the extra to have the motion on, it feels just like you're on a real plane. Amazing fun.

Well done Nigel. Yes the motion on the 737 adds that little extra to the feeling of reality. Do come back and try the JUMBO! More

The kids gave me an hours flight simulation for my 70th Birthday. Wow what an experience. Yes, there is a lot to take in and you do have to concentrate but with a calm and professional instructor ( Chris ) sitting alongside me the 747 flight out of Salzburg and into Hong Kong at dusk was just superb
