My partner has just returned from here having experienced flying a 737. He enjoyed every second of it. From the moment he took off from Nice to landing at Luton airport 20 minutes later, which was his choice. Mark the instructor was absolutely brilliant!
Would he do it all again, yes!!

Exhilarating experience. From the friendly staff to the realistic simulator. This is a treat for pilots and non-pilots alike.

I really enyoyed the experience. I had the opportunity to land and take-off a 737 from Nice, San Fransisco, JFK NewYork, and Hong Kong.
The pre and in-flight instruction was pitched perfectly.

What a great experience. The staff and the flight instructor were great and very welcoming. I had the controls of a 737 and took off and landed at 4 different airports. It was so realistic and a fantastic day. Many thanks, highly recommended :-)

I received this experience as a gift and thoroughly enjoyed it. We were given a very warm welcome and the hour spent flying the 737 simulator was great fun. Excellent instruction at whatever level is comfortable.
Would certainly visit again - maybe have a go in the Spitfire next time!

Simply incredible!

Wow. Having been an aviation enthusiast for a number of years, I’ve always wanted to do something like this so when my girlfriend bought me the 737 simulator experience for my birthday, I was very excited! Quite simply put, this experience was incredible and blew my expectations out of the water - it was SO realistic. The staff were so friendly, with a special shout-out to Dan, who was my instructor. His knowledge, passion and general personality made the experience what it was. Living in Brighton, it’s a good 5-hour round trip on the train, however, needless to say, we are already planning our next trip. I’ve certainly found a new hobby. Thank you Dan, Captain Lowen and your team. Unforgettable experience - look forward to the next one!

Fly A Flight exceeded my expections. I booked a 1hr flight simulator on the Spitfire. As Briefed I arrived 15 minutes earlier than my actual flight time and I was greeted by a very friendly and smiling Laura at the reception. Laura then introduced me to Dan who was one of the instructors. Dan kindly briefed me on what to expect and we went through the controls etc. Dan then introduced me to Victor who would also be taking me on the last 30 minutes of flight time. Both the guys and Laura were great and the 1 hr experience of being in what truely felt like a spitfire cockpit was great. Dan and Victor are great instructors who obtain patience and are considerate and very polite. I so wish to return and hopefully have further flights in the 737 - 800 and perhaps the Messerschmitt. Thank you to the team at Fly a Flight.

Great experience for our 12 y/o on the 737 simulator. The instructor was excellent - clearly a professional pilot and a good teacher.

Don’t be put off by the unlikely location….
