Runway views amazing, comfortable environment, very little noise, you can sit in bed and watch planes landing and taking off. Tea and coffee making facilities very good, a few biscuits would have been nice. Shame we did not know the destination of the planes taking off, but thank you Renaissance for a most enjoyable stay.

Want to land a 737? This is the place to do it....great staff and superb instruction. It feels very real but the Pilot will talk you through following a proper pre-flight briefing. You even get to decide where to take off and land....I chose Vegas having been recently. I actually landed first time around which was amazing.

Completely brilliant.

Very stimulating.

Not sure if I would have thought of or gone to the trouble of coming here had I not been brought along by a friend and his corporate event after a more deserving person suddenly couldn't take part. The website and other reviews spell out what happens. Suffice it to say that it is impressive from the moment you enter the building and see the size and scale of the kit. The basic guidance was clear and specific as well as perfectly suited to the simulation to follow. Never thought I would be interested or able to follow the training or make a half decent fist of the time in the simulator. But I did, I enjoyed it, and am proud of how well I did. But won't be retraining or throwing money at getting a private pilots licence. I will stick to sailing. Would however recommend a day at health row with this unit. Will always remember it.

Absolutely brilliant and well worth a booking for the plane crazy people around. Nearest to the real thing by far.

Instructor (from Easy Jet) very amiable and selected a level suitable for me with some tasks thrown in. It was my day and he made sure that I enjoyed the time that I had.

Arrival and welcome very good as was post flight session.

I purchased this for my husbands Christmas, he is very difficult to buy for and I knew a friend of his had done this and enjoyed it.
Met Chris the trainer and after a quick briefing and explanation of the controls we were escorted onto the simulator...
A fabulous experience to "fly" a Boeing 737-800 great fun and quickest hour ever.
Even as an onlooker, it was a true flying experience.
Would recommend this experience for any plane enthusiast

Steve from Virtual Aviation helped me not only plan my trip, recommended an awesome place to stay, but also provided me with the most amazing flight simulator experience ever. This was my second time to do flight sims with the company. I started my Virtual Check Ride with them. The team wants you to learn and will provide you with tools to suceed. It was far from ok time is up have a nice day. My pilot stayed to answer questions so that I could build on my experience. This company is amazing, I look forward to finishing the program this year.
