Consistently voted one of the top things to do in Orange County, Flightdeck...

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.

Flew a 737 jet. The instructor was excellent, and the after a 20-minute classroom session, the real fun began. Flying a 737 for over an hour! Very exciting and very realistic, even without the added motion that the more sophisticated (but also more $$) flight simulators have. If you go, select the long (90-minute) session. It's not cheap, but you... More

Since I am a licensed pilot, my son-in-law surprised me with a flight session for a Boeing 737 to experience something other that a Cessna. Dave was our instructor (retired airline pilot) who took us thru what we were about to do. It's amazing what one must do to prepare and execute a flight on a major passenger jet. The... More

Was in the area for a conference in early July and decided to stop by. The Garrett and Lily were great fun, it was challenging and the simulators were top notch. Had such a blast I immediately tried to join the next group but no surprise they were booked solid! If I'm ever in the area again I will definitely... More

After a quick but informative training we climbed into our stationery cockpits and prepared for battle. I don't play video games, neither does my husband, so it took a few minutes to get the eye-hand coordination down. It was a fun time for a reasonable price.

This is a great experience for the family to fight each other with jets over san diego. It was very fun and worth to do on multiple occasions so you can get used to flying the jet well.

A very sophisticated flight simulation center. The F-16 and Boeing 737 cockpits were very realistic and the staff made the experience fun and exciting. It was well thought out for beginners to aviation all the way to the experienced aviator. A must for anyone that loves aviation.

I had so much fun and I learned a lot about the Boeing 737-800. The simulator felt like the real thing! I definitely recommend it.

After suiting up and receiving helpful training, you sit in a full scale cockpit with actual F-16 cockpit displays and controls. The wide view screen displays the airport, sky and earth with high quality realism of a video game - it feels like you are sitting in a real life fighter jet cockpit. The screen and HUD update simultaneously as... More
