“Interesting but small - and forget the simulator!”

Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Pilot an A380 or B777 in a state of the art flight simulator. The Emirates Aviation Experience has 4 simulators on which you can test your take off and landing skills. A great value for money experience for advanced flyers and novices alike. Downstairs from the simulator zone is a unique interactive experience that takes you behind the scenes of modern commercial aviation. Learn about the science of flight and what happens to your body at 30,000 feet. Turn around an A380 quick enough to earn your gold wings or watch what happens to your luggage after check-in. All of this and much more is available at the Emirates Aviation Experience. Alternatively you could simply relax in our river facing cafe or browse in our shop. A great family attraction and right next door to the Emirates AirLine which allows you to cross the river Thames in a cable car.

Situated right next to the cable car this small but interesting exhibition is good for youngsters (13 years old max) who have an interest in the mechanics of commercial flight. BUT the simulator will set you back £45! Well beyond my budget!

Emirates is a big deal right so I had expectations of something quite smart. But the £3 entrance fee should have raised alarm bells!

Room is scattered with a few TV type 'experiences', a FaceBook connection thing (that wasn't working), a few rows of economy seats and a 'cockpit' that was more plastic than a cheap Japanese car.

Didn't go on the flight simulator (£50 for the family) but noticed that they were far less hi-tech than others that I've seen.

Left thinking 'what was all that about?' and £3 lighter.
