A day to remember

TripAdvisor 2015 & 2016 Customer Service Excellence Winner
Business Link – Best customer service, best overall business award 2014

All of our instructors are experienced commercial pilots having flown thousands of hours and will tailor your session to your own experience level.  Friends or family members can join you in the cockpit as you fly them around any one of our 24,000 world airports. A 180 degree wrap around screen, realistic out the window scenery, and real aircraft sounds will fool your senses and most people soon forget their not in a real aircraft, and how it gets the adrenaline pumping.

You choose what you do?

Whether you want to practice take offs and landings,  try your hand at engine failures, fires or hundreds of other emergencies or simply test your hand eye control by flying into some of the world’s most challenging airports its your experience and you can do whatever you want!

You at the controls not the instructor!

An important point we NEVER forget is that its you and not your instructor that will remain at the controls throughout the session, taxi, take off, general handling and landings, your instructor will offer advise but the flying part is all down to you. Very rarely will you instructor touch the controls unless they are demonstrating a particular technique.

    I had received a one-hour Boeing 737 experience at Virtual Aerospace for my birthday. Having practiced a little bit on a PC-based flight sim, I wasn’t prepared for quite how different it would be!

    Firstly, both the receptionist (Evie – who was very accommodating in my rush to find a suitable time slot) and the pilot (Simon) made me feel very welcome. The briefing was pretty short and just involved asking whether I’d had any flight experience before and a decision on our starting airport and destination.

    After a slight hitch with a simulator that had been newly re-engineered, we moved to the other simulator and got cracking. The hour doesn’t begin until you’re up in the air so you never feel rushed at all which is good because there’s so much to take in, even if like me you knew what most of the instruments are for.

    The realism of the thing is brilliant and I was made to feel at ease. The pilot did a lot of the work so that I could concentrate on pitch and altitude, and getting used to the sensation of controls that I’d not used before.

    We landed at our destination with a touch and go before coming round to do it twice more, each time a slightly better landing than the last. This filled the hour and gave a real sense of achievement to the experience knowing that I was improving! I came away mentally knackered having been so focused for the hour, but relaxed enough that I could talk with the very friendly pilot about his experiences and tips for the future.

    So thanks for making this experience memorable and hopefully I’ll be back to do it again in the future soon. Highly recommended to anyone who has ever thought they’d like a go – even if you have no experience at all.

    Brilliant!

    I was brought this experience for my 30th birthday in Feb and have been looking forward to it since. I had a 90 minute flight experience and it flew by (sorry about the pun). You have the option of doing a long flight which isn’t very exciting as once you take off the autopilot kicks in and you just sit there!! My experience was split into 3 30 minute flights all of which I did the take off and landing all at various airports across the world some of which were successful and some not so!!! I wouldn’t hesitate doing it again. The staff are very friendly and talk you through everything. Highly recommended.

    I could resist no longer so booked myself on the 10 hour two-day course recently following a few 30 minute sessions. The two day course obviously costs a fair bit more than a 30 minute sortie, but you are able to settle down, get used to the environment, ask plenty of questions and have time for it all to sink in. You get so much more out of the experience if you do a little homework first. All the team were very friendly, and it’s a great facility. Lee my instructor was just brilliant, and I learned so much during the experience that you just can’t get out of reading books and manuals. It culminated in me managing and flying an entire real-time flight from Gatwick to Sola airport in Norway with Lee as my F/O. A trip I’ve done around 40 times over the last 8 months for work however the first time with me in the Captain’s seat knowing what I’m doing! With a final successful solo circuit around Gatwick, Lee declared me fit to use the the simulator on my own without any instructor in the future with a discounted cost. Wicked! I’ll be back for some of that.

    OK so it’s a fair slice of money, and there is always something else (bills etc) to spend your hard-earned on. However, if you yearn to fly some heavy metal this is probably the closest you’re ever going to get. Trust me, just do it. You wont regret it. Best money I’ve spent in a long time.

    I was brought this experience for my 30th birthday in Feb and have been looking forward to it since. I had a 90 minute flight experience and it flew by (sorry about the pun). You have the option of doing a long flight or completing circuits of an airport of your choice. Great fun – highly reccomended
