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.

I flew the 737 simulator with Steve Wallerstein, a real life retired airline captain. Steve was very energetic and a great teacher / copilot. He tailored the experience to match my interest level (I have a private pilot license). He coached me through the procedures and controls with just enough detail to enjoy it, and he did the rest as... More

This was a great time for my wife and I. If you like video games and/or you're competitive, this is for you. While the cockpit have no force feedback or giant subwoofer under your seat, they are realistic enough to make it feel like you're in actual plane. The graphics are meh...but the gameplay is good. I ended up with... More

Came here as a bday present, and I can tell you that it was worth the drive from Santa Monica. After checking, you can lounge in the "O'Club" listening to the flight/fights going on while waiting for your class to start. Then it's time for briefing and pre-flight. If you have played any decent flight simulator video game, you can... More

I received this as a gift for Father's Day 2014 and it took over a year before my son and I could find the time to get over to Flightdeck. What a great time we had! We did the Fox 1 experience and it was fun from start to finish. Our Flight Instructor, Josh was great. In less than 20... More

Love this place!!! My 11year old son flies on a simulator on his iPad, so I took him in for a 737 flight. Captain Waldo is very experienced, knowledgeable and patient. He makes is fun while giving an expert lesson. Make sure to ask for him when making the appointment. My don learned so much! We'll be back for sure!

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!
