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

The staff have been wonderful putting up with endless questions and requests.They have been particularly patient with providing just the right level of information and direction to make each flight a memorable experience....

I have flown the simulator on three occasions now and will be going back for more. Flying this 737 simulator is as near to the real thing as you will get. if you are scared of flying, try this and you will appreciate what goes into flying an aircraft and better understand the movement and noises of an aircraft in...

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.
