“Great Fun Stuff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

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 flew into Port of Spain in Trinidad. The staff were pleasant and so was the experience. You get a dvd of the event which is probably more alarming that the experience as you really look as if you are in an aircraft. Luckily the sound of the flight covered what I was saying whilst I was telling the guy my life story! I was at Westfield not Heathrow and I had a kgb voucher so for me it was a very positive experience. Whether you like flying or are afraid of it try this anyway, it is good fun and quite different to most 'what to do next' experiences.

It was a nice experience to feel like you were actually in the cockpit of a jet fighter doing acrobatics.
