Description: Consistently voted one of the top things to do in Orange County...
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. Up to ten people can fly at the same time, each in their own authentic F-16 flight simulator! In the "Officer's Club", guests can view and listen to all of the action on large LCD monitors. Flightdeck also offers "Group Events at the Speed of Sound!", with event space for groups of 8 to 80, this is a unique venue where the spirit of Top Gun inspires the adventurer within with a variety of aviation themed experiences for corporate groups, team building (serious or fun), incentive trips, parties, customers events, sales events, seminars, product launches, off-site meetings etc.

As a retired pilot who had not flown for many years, I decided to try out the B737 Flight Simulator. The session started by a briefing from my instructor Steven Wallerstein. He covered the systems and procedures of the aircraft thoroughly. I found Steven to be very knowledgeable. He brings a wealth of experience from his previous job as an... More

Such an enjoyable experience! Got to fly the 737 with my husband and mom watching. I have a flight simulator at home, but this is way better and so worth it! Looking for a fun opportunity to learn to fly, this is the place. They also do combat flight simulation which I'm sure is equally as exciting! We got a... More

Stephen Leong was totally awesome! He took care of our birthday celebration for a group of 15+ teens and he did it flawlessly. We had 3 major venues for this special day and it was only at Flightdeck where the compliment was given. We highly recommend everyone to Flightdeck for an amazing time, especially for a group of teens. Paul... More

Everyone at Flightdeck was simply awesome! We were there as part of our dad's 90th birthday celebration. Our dad is a retired USAF fighter pilot and we decided this would be one of several ways we would celebrate. Paul, Steve, and the rest of the Flightdeck crew treated our dad like royalty! We all had a wonderful time. It was... More

First off, I would like to personal thank Dave Hansen (my instructor) for being my copilot in the sim. He is a great pilot with many years of knowledge on planes and flying in general. The overall all experience is great! They also have 9(If my memory is right) fighter planes that have dog fights against each other. To wrap... More

A great experience flying the Boeing 737. Former pilot Captain Waldo is an outstanding instructor and the experience was very real. Highly recommended as a solo flight or with a friend or relative. Ask for Captain Waldo!

The 737 simulator is fantastic! Captain Steve was awesome! He flew the aircraft (along with others - 767,757,MD-80) for decades, so he was a perfect pilot/instructor. Started form a "cold/dark" airplane and did two roundtrips! He acted as instructor first, then as watchful co-pilot for the return leg. SO EXCITING! I am avid "flight sim-er" at home, but NOTHING can... More
