Great experience

Experienced flying a Boeing 767, instructions were very informative and there was enough detail to take off and land. A brilliant experience and would do this again.

This is an amazing experience for those interested in flying as you get to "captain" a 737-800. You sit in the simulator cockpit and as you look out the cockpit window it looks like you really are flying. I chose to take off and land at Auckland airport and it really is the Auckland landscape. Then I flew from the... More

It was a birthday gift for our 8 year old son. Having chosen this over a party with his mates, he enjoyed the experience throughly. Tom, who was the instructor was great and managed to squeeze in 3 take offs and landings in 45 minutes.

I took my 16 and 13 year old boys to Flight Experience on a recent visit to Melbourne, and they loved it. There was a pilot assisting them with the controls, and they could pick airports of their choice to take off and land. Very realistic and a great experience. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Definitely recommended.

My kids gave me a voucher for Flight Experience for Fathers Day. I was unsure how I would go and if I would enjoy it but once we got started it became a very enjoyable experience. After some tuition in the workings of the Boeing 737 the simulator was set up for Melbourne airport and so with the help of... More

If you are an aviation aficionado like myself having logged over 1.5 million air miles for business and leisure travel, visiting Melbourne offered an opportunity for me to cross off one more 'bucket list' item while visiting Australia! Since my wife is not interested in aviation, Simon Greenland, our private guide (www.theprivatetourguide.com), and I arrived at the Flight Experience facility... More

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. No motion but very, very real. Ask to do an approach to the old Hong Kong airport if you have the kahoonas.... More
