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.

My group and I had a wonderful time at the simulation center. We were suited up, given a detailed briefing and led into the impressive simulator room which contained 8 accurate replicas of F-16 Fighting Falcon cockpits. For the next 40 minutes, we had a great time blasting one another, all behind the realistic controls. I only wish it were... More

Authentic fun at every high speed turn. From the classroom session to prep all pilots we spend the bulk of our 90 minute session bringing down the opposition. JR our instructor was thorough and complete in his preparation and his in flight tactical pointers. I'm impressed and most definitely will return in the future. Be aware there might be some... More

What a great place to have a company sponsored event. the venue is a little ways from the convention center in an industrial park type area, but once inside you forget everything. Definiltey choose to do the flight simulator as part of a squadron and if you can the B 737 simulator too. Great food and great drinks, and the... More

I received a flight simulation gift for Christmas a couple years ago. I went and found that it is so much harder than it looks. So many controls and such. Gives me great respect for the pilots out there.

Here is a truly unique adventure, flying a fighter jet in a full-on dog-fight. All I can say is that I went to Disneyland, which was great, but getting immersed in flying a F-16 was the best. I'd choose that any day! My son and I had a blast, literally, he blasted me out of the air a few times,... More

The staff, the facility and the flying experience were fantastic. There were a few people in our group of eight who had little or no experience. The orientation was thorough and gave everyone everything they needed to have a great time. Someone may have already mentioned this...getting into the F-16 would not be easy for someone who has difficulty climbing... More

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
