I can't say enough good things about our time at Global Flight Adventures. I gave my husband the 2 hour package as an anniversary gift because he's fascinated by flying and we made the trip from NJ to Canton to experience this simulator. Moses the flight instructor and co-pilot was awesome he made sure we had the full experience going from "cold and dark" at the gate to push off to take off and landing. We flew from Logan to LaGuardia (my hus was born in Brooklyn) and then we did a tactical maneuver avoiding an oncoming aircraft and then a take off and landing at St Maarten where it's a really challenging runway. It was so much fun we could have been there all day and as the passenger I really felt like we were flying and up in the air. The simulator is an exact replica of a 737 cockpit and really really impressive. I had no idea all that went into preparing a plane for take off and all of the instruments you have to keep track of during a flight. Amazing Amazing experience and we can't thank Moses and his wife enough for showing us an awesome time and really giving my husband a thrill to fly in the simulator. We came to Canton all the way from NJ to do this and if you're considering the trip I would recommend taking the train to Boston, staying overnight and then taking the T to Canton Junction(GFA is right down the street a 3 min uber ride) Thanks GFA for an amazing experience and a really fun weekend trip to Boston!

If you’ve ever dreamed of piloting a 737 Airliner, this is your chance to take the wheel of a professional flight simulator and take to the sky.

Paired with a Certified Flight Instructor, you will run through a true checklist to get your Boeing 737 up and running and then navigate to the city & airport of your choice, practicing approaches and takeoffs.

With a true flight simulator flight deck, straight out of a Boeing 737, it’s exciting and thrilling to take the reigns of this jet.

My only complaint was that a few of the key cockpit controls weren’t working (gear up and down lever had been damaged by prior pilot and not repaired, the thruster controls were not allowed to be operated by me) so it detracted from the experience somewhat, as I did not get to operate those controls that are so key to a simulation. At $300 for 90 minutes, I would have expected the entire flight deck to be in correct working order. This was disappointing, but did not ruin the entire experience.

Nonetheless, this was an exciting experience for a guy who so far has only flown a 737 on his MS Flight Simulator X. My instructor was great and made the experience really cool.

If you’re an “avgeek” or know one, this is a great gift for them to get behind the wheel of a professional 737 simulator - not something you get to do every day.

I went with my father for his 60th birthday gift and flew in the 737 simulator. This was an amazing and unique experience I highly recommend! It was extremely realistic and the equipment is an exact replica of a real cockpit. I've been in the aviation industry for the past 11yrs and have never done something like this. This is a perfect activity for aviation enthusiasts and anyone interested in experiencing what it's like to be a captain for a day. Moses was a great instructor as well.

This was an awesome experience, my second time going with my son. Receptionist is patiently, kind and friendly. The instructor did an amazing job with my child giving him a first hand experience of what it is like to fly a 737.

I am an old-time airplane pilot with thousands of hours flying, as a flight instructor and as a captain on commuter and corporate airplanes. It was 1962, as I drove my car past Norwood airport, that I decided to stop, and take an airplane ride. I fell in love with flying airplanes at that time and I acquired all of the licenses that were printed by the government, including the PhD of the air the Airline Transport pilot's license.
A few weeks ago as I drove by the airport again, 59 years later, when I saw the sign, Global Flight Adventures, I stopped and inquired about flying the simulators, I was terribly impressed when I walked in the door and I was warmly greeted by, Mary, the receptionist.
The cleanliness of the entire operation was excellent. The Cessna 172 and the Boeing 737-800 NG simulators were modern, clean, extremely authentic in every detail. I signed on for a 10 hour program to start a refresher course.
My instructor, Moses , was very proficient, professional, patient, and very knowledgeable about the aircraft and systems; he was especially considerate about teaching new students in the Boeing 737-800NG simulator, such as myself.
He put me into the captain's seat and he showed me how to start the engines and fly the airplane around Boston. He even let me land the plane not only that but he let me take the plane off the ground. He was patient and taught me how to fly the plane the correct way. It was so much fun flying with him in that beautiful airplane, I just can't wait to go back and fly some more. I feel like I died and went to heaven. Global Air Adventures beats going to Disney World for sure.
I guarantee that, no matter if you are a child with no experience or an old time Boeing 747 captain , you will enjoy this out of earth experience with great instructors
Sincerely,
Dan McCarthy.

My business partner and I made the trip from Portland, ME to check out this highly rated flight sim centre. As qualified pilots we had high hopes - safe to say we were far from disappointed. The simulator is second only to the service you receive on arrival to the extremely clean and well thought out centre. Be it you’re local or need to catch a flight to check this out it is worth every cent!

This was such an amazing experience. For my dads birthday I decided to get him a 60 min gift card for the Boeing 737. He LOVED it. As a self-proclaimed "aviation enthusiast" and a history of flying, he thought it was the greatest gift. The instructor was so kind, patient, and friendly. He went above and beyond for my dad. I will be going myself, as well as purchasing more gift cards for my dad.

We flew into Norwood Airport (KOWD) and took a short Uber (5 minutes) to get to Global Flight Adventures. Mira warmly welcomed us and made us feel right at home, and within minutes, Moses had the simulator set up and ready to go with all the options I had requested (I had done this before). Moses is great at both explaining things, but also patient enough to let you actually do what he's explaining. The flight was from JFK to BOS (an intro for my friend who was coming for the first time) and then a flight from JFK to LGA, flying the Expressway Visual to 31, which is a very challenging approach. Everything went great and Moses made sure we both had a great time as well as left learning a lot about the 737-800..and of course, preparing us for our next return to Global Flight Adventures :-)

My husband and our 11 year old grandson each had a session on the single-engine flight simulator. The instructor was very knowledgeable and patiently guided each one of them through the actions necessary for takeoffs, landings, and midair flight. Each was able to choose the airport he wanted to fly out of, and each of them got to experience sunrise, daytime, and night flight conditions. The instructor not only told them what to do, but explained the reason for each action. We all left with a much greater appreciation for the intricacies of piloting a plane, and we look forward to trying the B737 simulator next.

I can’t say enough good things about Global Flight Adventures. They are amazing! We tried it out for my (then) 14 year old son and he fell in love with flying. We signed him up for the classes and he thoroughly enjoyed the experiences and friendships be built both with the kids, Moses, Miri and the instructors. My son lacks confidence and he totally thrived in this class. It is pretty cool to be able to land a Boeing at Logan on your own! I am grateful to them for giving my sone confidence in himself. He has made lasting friendships from this experience. We also bought a session for my dad (in his 70s) and he was equally thrilled and excited like a little kid. Love love love them!!!
