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

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.

Boeing 737 simulation was great. The flight was great fun by a real commercial pilot. Highly recommend

I went to Flightdeck last weekend with my boyfriend after learning about it on Groupon. I was already sold once I read about it. We love gaming, so this looked like it might be the perfect fit. We had a fantastic time! The staff there were so nice and had great customer service skills. Our instructor, Kevin was such a... More

12 and 14 year old plus husband did this. Had an absolute blast One did fighter and two did the 737 simulator. Loved it. Young or old can do the fighters. 737 simulator was a little deeper. Lot of training (that they give) before you can do it. Quite technical but my 14 year old did it and loved it.... More

We were a party of 4 adults. We did the firefiight with the F-16s. This was really fun entertainment designed to be first fun, but also informative and a realistic experience. You're going to want to go back, trust me.

We had a blast doing this. Have three kids (12, 14, 17) and they all loved it. Great price for the length of the attraction. The instructors were a lot of fun. Tip: flight suits are optional - but wear them! - why not? adds to the experience and photo ops! So much fun - would definitely do it again.
