Do you know someone with a passion for aviation, or even a rookie pilot? Ever wondered what it would be like to glide through the sky and land at globally renowned airports? With this great experience, provide yourself or a lucky aero enthusiast with the chance to discover the joy of flying within a contained, safe but absolutely exhilarating environment! Take control of a fully functioning Boeing 737 simulator for 1 hour, taking the controls from take-off to landing.
This state of the art machinery is used by professional pilots for training purposes, meaning every button and switch is accurate with appearance and function to a real aircraft. A combination of incredible graphics and an impressive sound system means that you hear and see everything just as it would be in reality. Combined with a brilliantly integrated software set up, be prepared to immerse yourself in your flight and feel every vibration, but without actually leaving the ground! Select your own weather options and even the landing airport, as this experience is highly adaptable to your own flight preferences.
Upon arrival, you will welcomed by your instructor and given a in-depth and comprehensive health, safety and flight briefing. Your instructor will talk you through every step; however, the session can be tailored to your unique preferences, whether you would consider yourself a beginner or pro. Enjoy a calming, relaxing trip or a raucous storm; the turbulence level is completely up to you! After this, you will be taken through to the cockpit where you will get the change to practise a take-off and several landings at some popular airfields, depending on your location of choice. Your co-pilot will assist with operations such as fuel pumps and electrical power, but it’s you who will start up the engines and take it from there. You’ll be travelling in manual mode as much as possible rather than on autopilot and you will also have the opportunity to assist as co-pilot before your post flight de-briefing.
With a full hour in the air you’ll soon be getting into full-on airline pilot mode. The sky is your playground.
