Consistently voted one of the top things to do in Orange County, Flightdeck is a flight simulation attraction providing civilians the opportunity to pilot fighter jets in actual cockpit simulators and a Boeing 737 flight simulator. Experience the challenge of aerial maneuvers at 500 knots, aircraft take-offs and landings and the excitement of air-to-air combat.

Do you want to have the time of your life? Well, then, come on board! My girlfriend and I gave the Fox 1 experience to our husbands and tagged along to watch their fun...and fun it was. The viewing screens for the "cheerleaders" and "audience" make it a double value. The guys so enjoyed the flight and also the "briefing"... More

My 21-year-old Autistic son has wanted to take a flying lesson for several years. He also has cognitive deficits, however and not everyone is willing to work with people who have special needs. After reading good reviews of Flightdeck, I decided to give them a call. I told the receptionist about my son's limitations and asked for an instructor with... More

This is a great experience for everyone, but my really loved it! They got to play pilot for the day! The experience is really enhanced by actually wearing a pilot's suit, use of headsets and climbing into an actual cockpits seat! My son is a 16 year old and this is a super fun experience for teenagers! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

My son wanted to do something different for Father's Day- and he couldn't have done anything better. What a thrill- I am a retired Air Force vet and never got to get in a cockpit of a fighter jet- this was so much fun for me, especially the dogfight! The personnel at Flightdeck are friendly, courteous and helpful throughout the... More

Our family has been coming to Flightdeck for several years. It is a regular for my son and husband. Although they often know one of their gifts is a flight tour, it is always welcomed and the 'trash talking' begins of who is going to be the "Top Dog" on this next flight. The first time my husband went, he... More

The experience felt like it was real. The controls and the response of the simulator was very impressive. Peter Griffin, this was an amazing experience. My son will definitely remember his birthday.
