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

Great place to have some flight experience. The instructors were very knowledgeable and helpful. It is a wonderful experience for me and my family to come here and have some flight experience on F16 and Boeing 737 simulators

This is a non-nauseating simulation ride. Excellent visuals of the scenery in the state. Very corny warm up that is so hokey it is almost worthwhile just for that

Missed your opportunity to become a "Top Gun" pilot? Not to worry. Flightdeck is your place. No previous flying knowledge is required, so even novices can participate. An aviator flight suit is provided prior to the pre-flight briefing. After that, be prepared to feel the adrenaline rush of flying a fighter jet and the exhilarating thrill of being engaged in...

I am not a real pilot however I have over 2,000 hours of flight simulation time with various online Virtual Airlines and countless thousands of hours before I found and became part of the Virtual...

If you have never flown a real plane this is a great experience, but don’t go alone! The best is getting to shoot it out with your friends (or at them if you prefer). Be warned this is a full experience, right down to the flight suite! If your looking for a full motion thing, don’t bother. Think back to... More

Got a visit to Flightdeck for my birthday and I finally went there with my girl-friend last Sunday. That was great fun and highly entertaining! Very friendly crew there and the overall experience was definitely worth every minute. In fact we're planning on going back with a bigger crew of people next time. After getting into an air force jump... More

Just finished our flight, family of five, and we all "loved" this experience. Steve -"Gums", and "Zulu" - the instructors were awesome. Great personalities, very helpful, and they literally "made" the experience a great one. As to the flight simulations, it was/is a really fun experience that I found well worth the cost. Will definitely do it again and recommend... More

I visited Flightdeck Flight Simulation Center at the beginning of May as a birthday gift to myself. I am an avid aviation enthusiast and I spend a significant amount of time flying virtually using FSX (usually an airbus A321). However, I wanted to have a more authentic experience and Flightdeck did not disappoint. When I arrived, I was introduced to... More

I took my two grandsons(14 and 16 years) and they had a blast. It was the highlight of our trip. My oldest grandson was the top scorer of the group. My youngest was also an ace. They could not quit talking about how cool it was.
