I asked my girlfriend to buy me this for my 27th birthday as I've always wanted to do this! I like planes and the simulators you see on tv are amazing! With the hydronic legs high off the ground etc. This however was not the case. This thing is pretty much sits on the ground and doesent move at all,... More

My son, who is 12, is a budding pilot and we gave him this voucher as a treat. He absolutely loved it! This experience was the highlight of his holidays. His instructor Tom, from the Brisbane simulator, was very enthusiastic and was obviously very passionate about flying. He took the time to explain the all the controls and instruments to... More

I bought this as a birthday present for my 11 year old grandson who is dead certain he wants to be a pilot. I can say it was money well spent. He absolutely loved it and will be raving about it for a very long time. His father and older sister went with him, and his sister wants me to... More

What a great experience. We had Mark for our flight and he went above and beyond. There was room at the back of the cockpit for a few people to watch. We got to pick what airports we wanted. I have seen a couple of real life 737 cockpits and this was definitely the real thing. I was amazed at... More

I was given a voucher for an hour on the simulator as a birthday gift. I play flight simulator on my home computer but I appreciated the pilot (instructor's) experience.. I really enjoyed being in the cockpit using actual controls and having the depth of view. I took my lesson seriously. Because I had an hour I wanted to fly... More

I'm not a pilot, or even a would-be pilot. I'm an adventurous lady aged over 50 and I had my sim experience at Newstead. My experience with Jet Flight Simulator was very positive. A voucher for a sim experience would be a great gift for someone who "has everything" or loves travel or aviation. You can choose your preferred airports... More

For those who haven't dabbled in flight sim games at home, this is a fantastic experience. I've done a bit of flying on flight Sims at home and whilst I was super impressed with the setup and instruction from the pilot, I felt like I could have gotten a little more for my money. It is something I'm happy to... More
