Try to imagine this – your instructor is sitting beside you in our 15-million-pound flight simulator but only you are touching the controls. Throttles forwards and you will be pressed into your seat as you accelerate to 150mph, a firm pull on the controls and you will feel as the aircraft rockets into the virtual sky, quickly accelerating to 250mph. You will complete a full circuit of a major airport before attempting to bring the aircraft back in to land again. For more information read below.

What to expect
Upon arrival, you will be met by one of our fully qualified, commercial pilot instructors. Over refreshments they will give your group a brief overview of how the session works, a safety briefing followed by a more in-depth 20-minute briefing on how to fly the Boeing 737 800 or Airbus A320 aircraft, hopefully with crashing or getting lost! After the briefing is complete you will be escorted to one of our 50 feet high, £15 Million-pound flight simulators, each machine is capable of replicating every feeling felt in a real airliner including high winds & severe turbulence!
A Friendly Competition
Although not compulsory we always find the best sessions are those with a bit of friendly competition. Our instructors mark each pilot on such criteria as, accuracy, not getting lost and being a full motion machine not giving everybody back ache with heavy landings! At the end of the session the marks are tallied up and a small prize if presented by our instructor.
If a member of your group has some real flying experience you should inform the instructor who will add a handicap based on experience to keep it all fair.
You at the controls
Whichever aircraft type you decide to fly you will be at the controls for the full flight, from take-off, all the way back to landing. Your instructor will provide advice and suggestions throughout the flight but at the end of the day it’s all down to you! We can fit up to 5 people in the simulator at a time including your instructor and throughout the session you will rotate around until everybody has had a go.
Time at the controls is approx. 20 minutes which is the time it usually takes to complete a full circuit.
Our full motion simulators are based at Burgess Hill, East Sussex, when not flying you will be able to relax in our crew canteen or designated briefing area.

This simply MUST HAVE Addition to your experience producing a keep sake you will spend hours watching and re watching, time and again! We have positioned 3 HD cameras in our cockpit to capture every second of your flight experience. From the moment you strap yourself in we start recording from 3 different angles.
Our headsets also capture every sound and discussion held in the cockpit.
At the end of the session you will receive a USB drive in our branded gift wallet to immediately take away.
THIS IS A SIMPLY MUST HAVE ADD-ON !
Ever wondered how to start and prepare an airliner for departure? Or want to taxi to the runway? For just £25.00 extra you can add this MUST HAVE 15 minute add-on to your session and really get that full airline experience.
Once your briefing is complete you will enter the cockpit to find it completely shutdown and parked at the Gate – or cold and dark as we describe it, this is how real pilots find it when they turn up for the first flight of the day. Guided by your instructor you will slowly bring the aircraft to life, you will follow real world checklists, program the flight computer and prepare the aircraft for flight. You will then be pushed back from the gate, start the engines and configure the cockpit for taxi. With both engines started and the pushback truck out of the way you will taxi the aircraft to the holding point at the runway. With final checks complete and lined up on the runway you are ready for your session time to begin.
This add on is a MUST HAVE addition to all our flight simulator experiences. The level of realism this adds cannot be underestimated totally immersing you in the world of the big jet pilot.
