Enjoyed this experience enormously! The customer service during the booking - and our numerous change requests - was excellent. The guiding during the take-off and landing procedures was professional and friendly. Can recommend this highly to everyone!

Got a captain course as a gift and wow, the visit beat all my expectations! From excellent hosting and training from co-pilot Panu to the very immersive experience of flying an Airbus. Recommended to anybody with or without experience in flying!

I did the "most dangerous approaches" program and it was really cool to fly them with the sim. It is really immersive with the full cockpit.
