My wife booked me in for a hour as a surprise ..... I almost fainted. As a private pilot with 30+ years experience and many more hours in FSX I was keen to combine the two experiences. Wow.

What a great experience! The sim was very realistic and great fun to fly into the old Kai Tak airport. The instructor Leigh was very passionate about his work and gave us great instruction! Will be recommending to others for sure.
