The website and other reviews spell out what happens. Suffice it to say that it is impressive from the moment you enter... More

This is my first ever review on tripadvisor so here we go. It's out of this world, a great day out if you like aviation and a treat if you have kids. Recommended

Having worked as a navigation clerk and trained as an air stewardess many years ago and spent time in the cockpit looking for the navigator's maps (that's what we had then) I though this would be fun. I don't like flying now and the pilot who was with me tried his best to explain all the safety features, whilst we... More
