Should have reviewed this earlier! Visited in September, I did the 1 hour experience which my daughters paid for for my Father's Day present.
I'd spent many hours in the past on Microsoft's Flight Simulator, but this is far far more "as real as it gets". With my instructor, Irwin, we flew from Amsterdam to Gatwick as a normal flight, arriving into Gatwick as it was getting dark. I did the take off, managed the auto pilot and systems, then hand flew over the North Sea, before managing a good landing at Gatwick, - something I've never managed on the computer!
As others have said, I was so engrossed in the flying, I didn't really look out of the window, but my daughter sat in the jump seat couldn't believe how real it was and that we didn't move!
Thanks for a sweaty palm & wobbly legs afternoon, would love to fly again one day!
