Incredible experience! One of those on your bucket list!

Doug is professional and pays attention to detail. He makes you feel so comfortable and at ease as he is very friendly and knowledgeable. The pre-flight briefing is also very interesting and provides you with so much insight to the aviation business.

The simulator is an amazing piece of machinery, once you lock the door it feels you are in a real aircraft. I could have spent 24 hours in there. I recommend this experience to anyone who has any interest in aviation. It is worth every penny.

Pilot a REAL 767 aircraft simulator
Jul 2014 • Solo
I found Wingman Adventures (Wingman Advisors at the time) trough TripAdvisor. I had been looking for this for many years since a real simulator is very hard to come by.
I quickly got a reply after sending an inquiry and after a few emails to sort out what I wanted, I received a written offer explaining my experience in detail and I was introduced to Doug who was going to be my instructor. A partial fee has to be payed when you order and the remaining amount a set number of days before your experience takes place.

I had a few questions which were quickly replied to.

The simulator is located just to the north of the runway at Miami International Airport (outside the airport premises). It is easy to find and parking is free.

When I met Doug, he was just the professional pilot I had expected. Very friendly and with a lot of knowledge. The experience I chose included a 4 hour theory session where he explained everything I wanted to know, and all of the things I needed to know before entering the simulator. There is also lunch included but to be honest, listening to Doug supersedes any available lunch option in Miami….so I skipped it not thinking twice.

As I am more than average interested in aviation, Doug adjusted his level of information to suit my level of knowledge.
The simulator itself is something I have never thought should be so complex. Doug starts you off at an easy level, letting you learn things and getting to know the airplane. He is patient, pauses and explains, then lets you try again. No pressure, it is your day and he is just making it even better. My 2 hours went like a blink of an eye. You are allowed your own camera. I brought a Go Pro Hero Cam 3 HD. The mounting can be a bit challenging due to the movement of the simulator.
If you think you are good in flight sims...you will have a surprise.

Doing this is by far the greatest experience I have ever had and I will definitely do it again.

A few tips for anyone interested in doing this:

- Bring water. Although there is a air-condition working, you will get thirsty.
- Be rested. The experience is great fun and can be overwhelming so you will get tired at the end.
- Don’t hesitate. It is worth every cent. I flew from Norway to Miami just for this and I will do it again!

Excellent experience
Mar 2014 • Couples
its hard to describe it in words, we flew the simulator for 2 straight hours and at the end i was sweating heavy.. its and fantastic experience to get a feeling what the pilots do on a day to day basis. it will put you right back to earth, if you think you can fly good in flight sims.

Our instructor, James, was very professional and passionate, he made it more interesting for us, took the time to explain everything clearly.

i would definitely do it again, and i can recommend it to everyone.

What can I say.....wow, what a fantastic and incredible experience, this day has to be on everyone's wish list. The whole day was excellently organised from the moment we arrived.
The day was so informative and educational and the experience of being in the brilliant simulator was just fantastic. We were very fortunate to have both Doug and John for the day and they were superb with their instruction and guidance, they let you enjoy the experience and gently guide you through the procedures with no pressure but just fun, fun and more fun. Thanks so much guys for a most unforgettable experience, you were brilliant!

I have called them several times and no one has called me back.
I'm wondering what is wrong with this company.
It shows no responsibility on their part.

Cool! Awesome! That doesn't even come close.

Cool, Awesome--those words don’t come close to describing what it is like to be in a 767 simulator for the first time. This is a “Holy s**t, Batman!” experience.
When you first enter what looks like a large trailer box on a stem and see the cockpit, it appears to be just what you anticipated. After the door is shut, the flight procedure is explained, and the sim parameters are set, the sim experience slowly takes over. This system is so advanced it is not a matter of suspending reality and pretending you are flying; instead the system overwhelms your sense of training to the point your entire body believes you are in charge of, and responsible for, a $150 million aircraft, its passengers and crew. Landing the behemoth (or bouncing it off the tarmac as happens the first time), then keeping it on the runway and stopping it definitely elevates your heart rate! During post sim time review all I could think about was getting back in there, learning more, doing better, and perhaps tackling more difficult flying circumstances.

Glad you enjoyed it. This is fun for us as well--it reminds us why we fell in love with flying in the first place.
