Owner description: Flight Simulators Midlands are delighted to offer you a thrilling experience on board a real B737-800 motion simulator or a Boeing 747-400 Jumbo Jet simulator with simulated motion or an Airbus A320 real aircraft, converted into a simulator. All are fitted with the latest Glass Cockpit Instrumentation (PFD/ND or EFIS)and the latest graphics available. Fly the mountains around Salzburg or the waterways of Hong Kong. These simulators have trained thousands of professional pilots over the years. (They are not replica simulators like many on offer). Now it's your turn to sit where they did and learn the tricks of the trade. We highly recommend a full hours flight time to get the best from your visit. Welcome on board. Captain Chris Rigby (Chief Pilot FSM)

This experience was fantastic ! I bought a voucher from groupon for my dads birthday and from my initial conversation with Roy on the phone to make the booking, to dads actual session on the day, we had a fantastic experience.Clive the pilot gave dad one to one instruction during the half hour briefing and hour flying session. The professionalism and courtesy demonstrated were second to none. Thank you to Captain Chris Rigby and his team for providing dad with a fantastic birthday treat and a brilliant day !!

I got this as a Birthday present and can highly recommend the experience: Great fun. I fly often on business and wanted to get a bit of an idea of what actually goes in in the cockpit and this was perfect: You get a thorough briefing as to what will happen, how things work and then you take the seat and after take-off the controls. I had the session booked with motion - well worth paying extra - and with the high quality screens, the real-life controls and the noise and movements, you really forget that you're sitting in a hangar in Coventry and feel like you're flying over the Alps.
A great present!

An excellent experience. The simulator is extremely realistic and enables the lay man (or woman) to get a real appreciation of the skill and discipline needed of a professional pilot. If you've ever sat in the back of a plane and wondered what is going on up front, (or even if you haven't), this is the thing for you. Then, next time you fly Easyjet or Ryanair, and you start to roll down the runway, you can impress your fellow passengers with call outs "V1, Rotate, Positive Rate - Gear Up!" Also the cost is far more competitive than other simulator experiences available and so represents excellent value. 5 Stars without hesitation.

Excellent value for money experience. We did the 30 minute flight. As well as a full 30 mins flying the simulator you get a comprehensive introduction into the theory of flight and how the controls on board the 737 work. Highly recommended and we will be going back.
