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)

Was bought 747 experience as a Xmas present and extended it from half hour to an hour session so managed a flight to and from Salzburg plus in and out of Hong Kong airport.
Thoroughly enjoyable and very informative. Julian was a great instructor and perfect gentleman.
Despite having my helicopter pilots licence I still managed to crash into the harbour at Kai Tak. Will need to go back and get that landing sorted !!!!!!
Highly recommended

Thank you to Pablo for a very enjoyable hour (plus) experiencing flying a 747. Well recommended and I am sure my son and I will be back to experience flying the Airbus.

What a fantastic experience and the staff were very welcoming and helpful, the whole thing was made even better when Pablo Mason was the instructor, what a nice guy and great character.
Flight Simulators Midlands gain in having him on board is the commercial airlines loss.
Many thanks to all for a great day

I did the 747 simulator flight on 28th March ........ absolutely fantastic experience ! Great fun , but with a serious emphasis on getting the full flight experience . I can't say enough about my two "co-pilots" , Derek and Derek , they were great. Flew out of Saltzberg , phew those mountains are close ! Landing was a real blast , truly wonderful experience . The 1/2 hr was not long enough , I would really recommend going for the full hour .
