Went for a flight simulator experience with 3 other family members. Initial 30minute briefing was quite deep and a little intense. This was followed by a 30 minute flight each with Rick, our pilot instructor. Very realistic experience and great fun. Highly recommended

Hi Peter. The briefing is intended to give you the basics so you get the most of the actual flight session. Lot to take in though as you say. Glad you had a good time - Captain Chris Rigby

Looking to make a booking for my 50th Birthday. Can't decide on Full Motion 737 or static 747! Can anyone please advise on their experience if flown both. Cheers

Probably not. You really need the course that we run which has a short simulator trip at the end. - Chris
