This is a most amazing simulation experience and well worth doing, or giving as a gift for a special birthday, which is how I came to it. The cockpit is not a mock-up, but the real deal, and the outside screens do an excellent job....More

I was only an observer, but my two friends who actually did the flying really enjoyed the experience, you need to concentrate on what you are doing, the staff are very patient & knowledgeable & make flying the B737 a persperation inducing reality!

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
