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)

I can recommend this experience thoroughly. Once "in the air", you find it almost impossible to believe you are, actually, still on the ground. It is fascinating to find out what goes on up front when we ordinary mortals are relaxing in the back. The instructors are experienced commercial pilots who bring it all to life and make the whole thing an epxerience not to be missed. I will be going back!

Visited the simulator on the 19th of Jan. After an insightful 30 minute briefing we boarded the flight deck of the 737-800. After a quick review of the instruments off we went hurtling down the runway into the sky's around the Salzburg mountains. This was followed by a quick warp to Hong Kong for another take off, fly around the harbour then a night time landing! All in all a thoroughly enjoyable experience and worth paying the extra for an hours session and the hydronic flight deck!!!!!!

I spent a very enjoyable hour flying a full motion 737 simulator under the friendly instruction of a recently-retired 747 captain. The simulator is a real device formally used for training airlne pilots and as such is very realistic. We flew around Salzburg and then Hong Kong and the hour went by very quickly. At £99 including motion (special offer) this represents unbelievable value and is around 40% of the cost of the next cheapest full motion expereince. If you want the ultimate in realism, with a friendly briefing and instruction and are on a budget then this expereince is unbeatable. Highly recommended.

This was my retirement gift and well worth it. I upgraded to the full hour with motions and started off with LOWS to LOWI (except that the Aerads were missing for LOWI) so the destination was changed to LFSB, but declared a medical emergency into EDDM en-route....
That was followed by 3 night approaches into VHHX (Touch and Go, Go around and a full stop landing) and very realistic it was too....
Chris and his team did a fantastic job - will be back !
