The Sky's the limit
Oct 2021 • Couples
Loved all of the experiences in the Boeing 737-800, from powering down the runway for take off to " landing" in Manchester, keeping the plane on course and taking the controls for the ILS landing etc. An hour was too short. Next time got to try the Airbus 380 for a longer experience.

The 737 Experience
Aug 2021 • Couples
Great experience. The equipment is very professional. The instructor was friendly and very knowledgeable. I would recommend this 737 experience.

This was a gift as I like to do things I haven’t tried before - and this lived up to this. I wasn’t sure what to expect but was so much more than I expected.

Give it a go - how often do you get to fly a plane?

737-800 simulator experience, a great way to spend an hour.
Oct 2021
After a long wait (thanks Covid) I eventually got to enjoy my birthday gift from 2019.
On arrival we were met by Alex who explained what was going to happen and the flight plan he had for me NCL to MAN. Alex was excellent and really took time to explain what was what as I started up the "aircraft".
I really enjoyed the whole experience and I was amazed at how much needs to be done prior to actually flying a passenger jet.
I was accompanied by my daughter who works for BA as cabin crew and has experienced many take offs and landings sat in the cockpit of lots of flights and she said this was just like the real thing, she even complimented me on my landing at Manchester. I really enjoyed turning to her and saying "cabin crew doors to automatic and cross check"!!
Thanks Alex you made the whole experience thoroughly enjoyable with your excellent descriptions of every function in the cockpit.
To anyone with an interest in aviation and flying this is a must.

Pleasurable Experience
Oct 2021 • Couples
This was a birthday present for my husband. He loved the whole experience, it actually felt like you were in a cockpit of a real plane. The instructor was very good at giving advice & instructions throughout the experience…you don’t realise at how much goes on in a cockpit. I was able to sit in & watch which was really interesting. Well worth the money and we would definitely recommend it to others. Thank you.

Retirement Gift Boeing 737-800 Simulator
Oct 2021
This was a Gift dating back to 2019 but because of the Pandemic i have finally got round to a visit .
Arrived 15 mins early at my booking time of 09:00 for a 90 min slot . I was greeted by a member of staff who explained what the procedure was on my visit .
I had chosen the Boeing 737-800 Simulator as i have flown many times on the real aircraft , the Instructor was very knowledgeable and explained every part of flying this Aircraft .
Overall i had a fantastic time at this Experience , i would highly recommend it .
They also have an Airbus A320 Simulator as well which i might try in the future .

Great family day
Oct 2021 • Family
Visited with my 2 boys we were like kids in a candy shop, we were made to feel so welcome by the staff so helpful from start to finish.
The experience was so real you actually thought you were flying in a full-motion simulator your body and mind made the turns with you.

I would highly recommend The Flight Experience.

I have now been 3 times and I have to say it’s always a pleasure turning up and flying a simulator. Staff are always attentive and keeps you informed about all aspects of the flight

The perfect gift
Oct 2021 • Family
The perfect gift for our Son who had an interest in piloting a passenger plane. We had hoped the simulator would give him an idea of what it would be like and it certainly did. His guide/instructor was so unbelievably knowledgeable as well as fun. Could not have hoped for better.
