What to expect
If you have ever wanted to fly a plane this is your chance to find out what it’s like! After checking in at the SimCenter located in Clearwater, you'll meet your instructor who will show you the ins and outs of your simulator. This 1- or 2-hour simulator experience will let you be the captain of a huge Boeing 737 plane. Pick your destination, airport and weather conditions then your instructor will walk you through each step. The software is in communication with the real airport traffic centers so you will get real time weather and real time traffic at the airports of your choice. Or, you can pick any part of the day and any weather condition and any emergency situation. If all you want to do is take a quick flight, choose the 20-minute simulator option where you can do take-off and land once giving you a quick taste of what it what it feels like to get behind the controls.

Cleared for Takeoff
Dec 2019 • Solo
If you have ever wanted to know what’s going on up front on your airline flight, or have a real interest in airline operations, this is a VERY realistic (although no motion) experience.

Several other reviewers have mentioned the fact that the instructor and autopilot do most of the flying, and I can’t argue with that, but that is pretty much how it works in real life. You are not going to understand all the systems and switches in an hour, so a lot is done for you. That said, the realism is spot on.

This isn’t a fly yourself all over the sky adventure, but airliners don’t work that way.
Good news is, they have options for you. Two fighter jet sims where you can literally fly through the Grand Canyon, below the rim at 300 knots, or race against a number of opponents on an F1 track.

Friends or family are able to watch as you operate any of the sims. The staff is friendly and the owner a very impressive guy who knows his stuff.

Highly recommend, unless you just want an arcade type ride.

Cool experience but wouldn’t repeat the 737
The setup for the 737 is quite stunning and I enjoyed sitting in a cockpit but the truth is the simulator is very realistic which means you can’t pilot it if you don’t have experience. The co-pilot (the owner) or the autopilot do most of the piloting and the instruction is very fast and intense. Upon arrival I was asked earnestly if I was a pilot and that was kind of a sign.

There are some more approachable experiences here. I would have liked to try the F-35 but I think that driving simulators would be cool. I’m not into video games but experiences like this seem worthwhile at least on paper.

I just think people interested in the 737 should be warned it’s not for inexperienced people and they should consider alternative options.

Flight from Southampton to London Heathrow
That was intense! Thanks a million to Pete who really communicates well the challenges of flying an airliner. He is patient, but also keeps you on track as you try not to cause your hundred passengers to vomit uncontrollably for an hour. While there are screens in front of you, you will not be watching them much since, being an airliner, your head is really inside the cockpit, which Pete has spent 20yrs and a kings ransom to recreate in great detail. Force feedback from the yoke seemed realistic and gave you the sense of ‘presence’. Highly recommend trying it out if your in the Clearwater area.

Incredible Place for People of All Ages!
Aug 2019
Peter's passion and knowledge, along with the very high tech equipment, made our experience at the Sim Center a memorable one!
So much that my son (who is 12) discovered a passion for aviation and flying! That's all he talks about and wants to go back to the center. Their 737 simulator is like nothing we had ever seen before. It is a fully functional, actual cockpit taken from a decommissioned 737, and the program mimics the actual weather conditions and time of day of where you actually are flying. Peter is sitting next to you briefing you in the entire flight and explaining all the buttons and procedures.
Flying simulators are not the only exciting activity; there is also an amazing Formula One simulator and several amazing virtual reality games and experiences.
The entire family can have fun there for a fraction of what Disney World would cost!
We STRONGLY recommend this place!

One of the highlights of our holiday.
We went to the Sim Centre with my 12 year old son who’s ambition is to become a pilot. The 737 Simulator feels so real, even down to the passenger cabin. He loved the simulator and learned a stack of new things from the friendly pilot instructor. It is an experience that we will always remember and I would recommend anybody interested in aviation to visit and try the 737 flight simulator. If we visit Florida again in the future, we will without a doubt be paying them another visit.

I spent an hour in the flight simulator. Very realistic, and does not look like a toy.
You really get to feel that you are flying the aircraft from start to finish. Very knowledgeable instructor, who will help you in any way you need. After an hour I was very satisfied and tired! Well worth doing, but you need to do the one hour session to get the proper feel of it.
