Flight Simulators Midlands are delighted to offer you a thrilling experience on board a real B737-800 motion simulator or a Boeing 747-400 Jumbo Jet simulator with simulated motion or an Airbus A320 real aircraft, converted into a simulator. All are fitted with the latest Glass Cockpit Instrumentation (PFD/ND or EFIS)and the latest graphics available. Fly the mountains around Salzburg or the waterways of Hong Kong. These simulators have trained thousands of professional pilots over the years. (They are not replica simulators like many on offer). Now it's your turn to sit where they did and learn the tricks of the trade. We highly recommend a full hours flight time to get the best from your visit. Welcome on board. Captain Chris Rigby (Chief Pilot FSM)

I could never have done this with a real 737!

This was a great experience, eye opening to see what goes on. I went with my sister and watching the other person have their go is as much fun as your go! Pay for extra time, its worth it.

An excellent present for somebody who has a fascination with these machines. Many of us won't ever get to fly a plane, but this next best thing is perfect. The staff are great, very informative, and friendly. The simulator was great. Once you close the door you have no idea you are just in a box! The cockpit is so... More

Thanks to my pilot, Rick, for a great time in the 737 simulator. While many people probably chose a 'classic' flight into a famous airport like the old Hong Kong Kai Tak, I elected to put the 737 down on my local airport, Halfpenny Green near Wolverhampton. It took three attempts to get it down, and with a runway about... More

Visited FSM for the first today as a gift and had an awesome time! Mesmerised by all the controls, knobs, buttons and instruments on board a Boeing 737 really was the really thing! Briefing and flight out and into Salzburg airport has left me feeling I want more! I want long next time as they also have a Boeing 747... More

An amazing opportunity to fly a simulator. All instructors are very helpful and informative. Great experience and ideal for a birthday or Christmas present for anyone. It is ideal to pick the 90 minute experience (30 minutes briefing and 60 minutes flying) or it is too short. I would go again.

This was a birthday present from my wife who came along as an observer, and we booked the 90 minute session (60 minutes flying) in a 737 with motion. I've flown many hours in Microsoft Flight Simulator, but the fact that the 737 is an actual aircraft cockpit converted into a simulator made me think that this would be a... More

Graphics amazing. A wonderful activity for all the family to enjoy,... More

A great afternoon out, with excellent pre-simulator training, which enables you to get the most out of your time in the simulator itself. Relaxed and friendly guidance and tuition from our pilot instructor Penny. We landed in Hong Kong, which was fantastic, as I hadn't been there since 1958! 5 Star experience! Highly recommended to all! Thanks to all at... More

Unfortunately had to cancel due to illness, followed by an operation with hospital stay and so lost all our money. Insurance is offered at £11.00 but is useless should you have to cancel. "Motion" is an extra! Apparently "motion" is not included which seems a bit odd - isnt that what a simulator is??? We knew we couldn't claim back... More

Sorry Jay, this is neither fair or true. Firstly I'm very sorry you had to cancel due to illness. But as is explained to you on the Groupon advert/voucher, and when you book, we operate a 7 day cancellation policy as we are usually unable to re-book your slot at short notice, should you have to cancel. If you took... More
