I'm a private pilot, haven't flown virtually at all for a decade. This 60 minute 737 simulator experience was great. I chose to do 2 circuits at JFK, ridiculously landing in a thunderstorm with lightning striking the runway just before touchdown (hint - don't do this in real life). Then we departed Hong Kong Chep Lap Kok for the nearby (and non-existent in real life) Kai Tak airport to do the legendary "chequerboard" approach, second time around with one engine shut down due to fire. The simulation is totally compelling - it really is like flying the real thing (commercial pilots can in fact log time in it). I've "flown" a full motion simulator and I can say that this one loses little in comparison as an immersive experience of what it is to really fly one of these jets.

Thanks heaps for your review, P4969ZLdavidh, it sounds like you had your hands full in that experience! We are gald you enjoyed it so much, it really is an amazing simulator and you do get an incredible sense of motion. Have you tried the Virtual Reality simulators? These have been designed and devleoped by pilots to be as close to flying as possible, and they are incredible. If you have done the 737 sim, I highly reccomend trying the VR ones too.

Bought this experience for my father in law as he has a passion for anything that flies! He thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it! He flew out of Malta and was bought to tears at 5e reality of it all. Thank you to his co pilot for his patience and expertise! Thoroughly recommend this experience! Most likely will be getting another one soon!

Hi 907arlettag, thanks so much for the review, it means a lot to hear how much our customers enjoy their experiences. We have upgraded the simulator a lot over the past few years, so I am not suprised he was struck with the realisim of the experience! Doing the experiece again is always awesome as he would now have some of the basics sorted and we can start getting into the more technical and challenging aspects :)

My hubby did the Boeing experience. He loved it. I really enjoyed watching - what a great way to learn a little about piloting a plane! Jack was a great, informative instructor. Be prepared to have to concentrate.
