Having purchased a Boeing 747 Flight Experience voucher for my husband’s birthday in 2019, we finally managed to book this after delays due to Covid. We had a great time, in fact my husband will say it’s one of the best things he’s ever done. Paul was our instructor, and he couldn’t have been better. We have booked two more flights, and can’t wait to bring our eldest son back to have a go too. Thank you to all at FSM. See you soon.

We were apprehensive to visit following the reopening of the Centre after covid restrictions. We were reassured on arrival to find every precaution had been taken with all staff being very professional and comforting. The flight experience itself was superb, starting with a video briefing, very informative, good revision for qualified pilots and insightful for the uninitiated. I had an hour in the 737 simulator with the excellent instructor Josh. He knew his stuff, an experienced pilot with an aptitude to get the best out of his student. He put me at ease. We explored the flight controls and systems, got used to flying the 737 before landing. Second flight out of Hong Kong International landing at the Old Kai Tak Hong Kong Airport, what a fantastic experience... I have to say Josh was fantastic and made my birthday experience outstanding, worth every penny 😉

A massive thank you to all the team at FSM. I initially booked for January 2020 but had to re-arrange and then COVID delays meant further re-arrangements...this was all handled superbly. My flight in the 737 was amazing. Josh was absolutely superb, so friendly and informative and it was so good to hear some of his real life experiences. Flew in and out of JFK and then had a pop at Kai Tak which was pretty daunting but ultimately a fantastic way to finish the hour. Have already booked again and fancying a bash in the A320. Thanks all!!

Excellent. The Airbus is a wonderful simulator which started life as a real aircraft - G-BUSF , flying with GB Airways in British Airways colours. The nose was cut off and we have reverse engineered it into an amazing machine. We are hoping it will be licensed soon by the CAA to enable us to do formal licence training for new pilots. Look forward to seeing you soon - Captain Chris

My 3rd time and back on the A320 again, getting more and more confident thanks to the brilliant instructors. This time I had Captain Kirk who I have to say has to be my favourite, really professional and let me take control for most of the flight and also showed me how the autopilot works. We flew from BHX-NQY which filled the time nicely and was where I wanted to go. Already booked another session on the A320 in December, can't wait!

What an amazing experience on the 737! Captain Kirk was very informative, humble and made the experience very enjoyable. Being very interested in aviation and the experience I received at flight simulators Midlands I’ve booked to return and do the a320 experience. Can’t wait to return next year.
