London, home of great attractions including the London Eye, Madame Tussauds and The Tower of London now also boasts the first Flight Simulator in the capital. "What a great experience, highly recommended" comments THE OBSERVER. Available at Central London for tourists and Londoners alike to enjoy, iPILOT is a dream for budding pilots, allowing you to take control of a major passenger jet, with guidance from qualified pilot instructors, in a flight simulator similar to those used to train future pilots, starting at a hugely affordable GBP 49 for a flight Experience.The simulator gives you a choice to fly from and to 24000 different airports - allowing you to try to land into some of the trickiest airports and taking in panoramic views of some of the most beautiful cities in the world! Visitors to London might also want to recreate their own flight with themselves at the controls. As features by CNN, the Sunday Times, the Observer, The Telegraph

Bought as present. Had to wait on the street until it was time for my experience. Lucky weather was good. Would not recommend. Waste of time and effort to get to Edgeware Road.

Hello Paula, Thank you for your review. We usually close our stores if there is a customer flying so the customer will not be disturbed during their flight. That is the reason we tell our customers, it is also written in our booking confirmation email, to be there max. 10 minutes before the appointment. Edgware Road is the nearest tube... More

Had this as a gift from my partner, very realistic flying. Instructor was very good going though all the controls. I had a 60 mins flying time , which I think is a must , or longer to get the real feel of the experience.

I bought this for my partners birthday - we found the place easily (it's less than a ten minute walk from Baker street), and were welcomed by the pilot. After a short wait, he took us through to the simulator - its fixed base (i.e. doesn't move) and it is in a normal office room (which is a bit wierd... More

Dear elenamadgett, Thank you for your review. Unfortunately you only had a 15 Minutes Flight Experience, which is good for a taster. We recommend a minimum duration of 30 or 60 minutes, especially for beginners. Our instructors are trained and they are trying to make the experience as realistic as possible.

Kids really interesting in flying so I booked a session on this 737-800 full flight simulator. Tuition really patient and clear. We were all taking off and landing successfully. Staff were super helpful before and during our visit. Thoroughly recommend it and have booked another session. Go try it out.
