Experience the challenge of aerial maneuvers at 500 knots, aircraft take-offs and landings and the excitement of air-to-air combat. Up to ten people can fly at the same time, each in their own authentic F-16 flight simulator! There is also the "Officer's Club", an observation area where guests can view and listen to all of the action on large LCD monitors, where they will see what each pilot is seeing during their flight and also hear the interaction between the pilots and the ATC crew (air traffic control).Flightdeck offers 45 minute air combat flights and 30, 60 & 90 minute Boeing 737 flights. Advanced reservations are required. « less

I knew this was not a simulator with hydraulics to move the thing around. But with the wraparound screen and the projected video the feeling to fly was very real. My wife, sitting behind me during the 'flight' felt the same. Actually, since this simulator is a true copy of a 737 cockpit, it is used by professional pilots to... More

What a great place! We were a group of 6, consisting of adults and kids over 11 years of age. All staff are super friendly and courteous. The trainers were awesome; super patient and full of information. They walked us through the entire process (suiting up, briefing, flying & dog fighting, and landing) and made sure every last one of... More

I gave this as a gift to my husband, son, and son-in-law. They had a great time. I will say that my son isn't a video player so he didn't like it as much as the others but they all agreed it was good.

I had a great hour long flight in the 737 Flight Simulator with Angelo one of Flightdecks flight instructors. We were able to simulate an emergency landing at LAX and he was able to talk me down from 30,000 feet. Definitely a unique and fun experience that I would highly recommend! While the simulator is stationary, the wraparound projected view... More

I had a great time. I've always dreamed of landing a jumbo jet. The 737 flight simulator at Flightdeck was so realistic that I had to look behind myself for bearings because it felt like I was actually moving. The staff member (pilot instructor) was knowlegeable and helpful and the overall experience was fabulous. Highly recommended! Bruce from Alhambra, CA

Three generations of my family took part on the F15 mission here and had an amazing time. Great experience from arrival to departure from the suits which are optional, the briefing to which spectators are also invited to getting into the simulators with plenty of time for picture taking, the mission and the debrief. Spectators watch all the missions on... More

Each year we are faced with the decision about where to have our kids' birthday party... We were thrilled to find FLIGHTDECK!!! Instead of the same old bounce house party, we took a bunch of 7 year olds on an exciting Top Gun style fighter jet adventure. I wasn't sure what to expect and hoped the kids would like it.... More

I'm sad I couldn't get a groupon deal for this place but it was still worth every penny! $59 for a flight simulator for the Fox-1 jet. I would suggest for you to reserve your time & day over the phone first as it seems that they do get pretty busy. I took my bf for a belated valentines gift... More

Everything about the place is cool, except for the main reason you're there. The staff is super friendly, you get a flight suit, "training", and some coaching while you play the game. That's where the experience falls apart, you're playing essentially a game that's of the same quality as any Windows flight sim you can purchase off of the shelf.... More

Great tour, seemingly flying over various areas of California. Even our young kids loved it. Great break from the heat too...
