Have a go at this, it`s great. Very realistic. I must admit I wasn`t very good at flying but I really enjoyed the experience.

Enjoyed my first visit to a flight simulator. I had a 60 minute session, this included a real time 30 minute flight from Manchester to the Isle of Man, a repeat landing at the Isle of Man and three landings at Gibraltar, one of which I landed in the sea but no harm done. Glad I've done it but I don't think I will be booking another visit.

We purchased an hour in the 737 sim field our 11 year old son for his birthday. Booking was easy and full details and directions were provided. The centre was fantastic, so friendly and professional. The sim itself was just incredible, for passengers and pilot. Daniel, the instructor, was phenomenal and we enjoyed a flight to Heathrow and a selection of landings. My son had a fair amount of experience on computer apps and programmes and Daniel gave us great tips for sim set-up on a home pc and was also great with our son - really encouraging and complimentary. We will definitely book again and want to thank everyone in the Bacup centre for a brilliant flight experience!

I’m a bit of a plane spotter and a geek anyway so i was delighted when my wife bought me a two hour flight experience for my 40th birthday earlier in the year. It’s clearly a popular place as when i booked, December was the first date i could get on a weekend. We arrived and sat in the departure lounge and then Daniel, my instructor came to introduce himself and ask a bit about my experience about flight simulators and the like. He took us down to the simulator where my wife and lad were comfortably seated in the cabin whilst Daniel and i headed for the cockpit. I had asked if I could do a flight from Manchester to Glasgow which i did with no autopilot, really was amazing how quickly it went by but still required a lot of monitoring on my part. Daniel then suggested a few challenging approaches and landings and I surprised myself at not crashing but still had an absolutely amazing time and would do it again in a heartbeat. Thanks to Daniel for being an excellent host and guiding through the procedures and the like as well and pretty sure I’ll be back for more.

This was a birthday gift for my husband and we went along as a family and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. My husband had the experience whilst my son and I sat in the passenger seats behind him. It was very authentic and the instructors were very knowledgeable and gave plenty of tips and advise. We will hopefully return again soon.
