Consistently voted one of the top things to do in Orange County, Flightdeck is a flight simulation attraction providing civilians the opportunity to pilot fighter jets in actual cockpit simulators and a Boeing 737 flight simulator. Experience the challenge of aerial maneuvers at 500 knots, aircraft take-offs and landings and the excitement of air-to-air combat. Up to ten people can fly at the same time, each in their own authentic F-16 flight simulator! In the "Officer's Club", guests can view and listen to all of the action on large LCD monitors.

Flightdeck also offers "Group Events at the Speed of Sound!", with event space for groups of 8 to 80, this is a unique venue where the spirit of Top Gun inspires the adventurer within with a variety of aviation themed experiences for corporate groups, team building (serious or fun), incentive trips, parties, customers events, sales events, seminars, product launches, off-site meetings etc.

Flightdeck offers an immersive flight experience coupled with fun competition, Our experience started with basic flight training with our host "Roxbury" coupled with about 10-12 min of practice time in the simulator before actually dogfighting, the Fox 1 level of the program is designed for beginners and offers 40 minutes of flight time. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful... More

Very professional group. These guys know their stuff yet take the time to explain and make you feel comfortable. No matter what your skill level, they make you feel like a pro. Thank you guys for keeping the egos in check and making everyone feel welcome. In a world full of negatives, these cats find the positive! Rock On!

Really good fun, good team of instructors and the simulation itself is fun. No flying experience is necessary as a pre flight briefing and short practice session precede the actual dogfight. The dogfight itself is good fun where you can team up in groups against other teams, or take on everyone else on your own. At the end you have... More

Son has been here before. 1st timers you do Fox 1, then you can do the Fox 2 mission. My son LOVES this attraction. You sit in an actual "cockpit" and you can wear a flight suit if you desire. You have a briefing and then you participate in a dogfight with other pilots. You finish up by trying to... More

This event for me was a Christmas gift from my parents. They knew that I love aviation and want to be an aviator. My heart and mind opened up to my full love on aviation. The activities I did at Flightdeck Flight Simulation Center were the the fighter jet Fox 1 package and the Boeing 737-800 ninety minutes package. The... More

My husband and I came to try this out. I had a lot of fun. He was a bit more frustrated, but he is used to doing well at athletic events and struggles with technology. I just had fun and intentionally crashed when I needed to reboot or get more ammunition. It was fun to wear the suit and be... More

My son and I signed up for the F-16 "Fox One" and 737 flight experience. The F-16 briefing was very through and prepared you well for the flight. The flight itself was a blast! The "controller" knew all the "lingo" and kept things moving along while helping you keep track of the action. My son was interested in the procedural... More

I visited this attraction last week after wanting to visit for over 2 years. The place is a must for any aviation geek. While I was there, I was able to fly both the F-16 and 738 simulators, and both were entertaining and informative. The F-16 sim is very accessible to novice pilots. The staff does a great job of...

Tries as much as possible to reflect the whole experience from briefing to debrief including assistance with getting into the cockpit with a perspecs canopy including flight suit. Best experienced with six friends to shoot them out of the sky.
