Booked this company as a gift for my father.
Got to say it was absolutely a boys dream to take part in this flight simulation, even just watching my dad made Me Feel Like a child In a Candy shop.
Absolutely worth every penny and more.
Will be returning for me to take a flight very soon.
One emergency after another - loved it! Just another Sunday afternoon dealing with airborne emergencies including rapid cabin depressurisation, left engine catching fire and turning it off in flight, not enough fuel to reach the emergency runway, 50mph landing crosswinds with one working engine, aborted takeoffs... absolutely loved it. The magic of Mak the instructor was in full play.
Amazing Flying and Landing Simulation Experience My sons and their partners celebrated our Xmas 19 'get together' in Brighton and we spent a wonderful 4 hours plus at Virtual Aerospace. We simulated taking off, flying and landing a 737 from/to a wide choice of airports, through a variety of weather conditions. The family had a splendid time and we wish to extend our sincere gratitude to Richard and Mak, our pilots and guides for the day, who were informative & amazingly patient with us all. We had an incredible experience and would definitely recommend to friends/family. Thank you.
Flight experience I had my flight experience today, it was far better than I expected, I really enjoyed myself and the experience of taking off, flying and landing a Boeing 737 was fantastic. Mak was a really good teacher, calm and explained all I needed to know. I will definitely be going back and taking my friend who I know will enjoy it too
Fantastic experience A fantastic experience. Very good training instructor Mak. My son learned so much and we all enjoyed the flight, take-offs and landings. Highly recommend.
was a great experience thankyou mak so much for the experience today had such a good time and if I come again this year I'm requesting to have you again I wouldn't have been confident without you explaining things and being patient with me and I am comming back soon highly recommend this place
To Mak thank-you and this was a great experience Loved the experience today a massive thankyou to Mak who made me feel comftorble and not as nervous thankyou for today means a lot and I hope when I book again this month to come back you will be my pilot again and just had the most best time I have ever spent with my life x
Fabulous Flying Thank you Mak! My wife bought me a 90min gate to gate flight simulator experience for my birthday. Best place to be (indoors) doing this experience while storm Dennis was raging outside!! Mak made us feel instantly welcome and set about explaining the controls and basic skills how to fly. Mind boggling the amount of buttons, procedures and safety checks - once through that you start your first taxi, take off and landing - I selected Gatwick to Heathrow, Cape Town international and finally the old Hong Kong airport. Time flew by and even my wife sat in the 3rd seat in the cockpit for the entire duration. Great experience - thanks again Mak.
2hrs and gate to gate experience Had my 2 hours session today and it was amazing. Mak was simply superb in explaining everything I nedded to know for my experience and also made it very funny.
Best bit was when I took off from San Francisco and flew under the golden gate bridge and back to the airport.
Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to take their 'DIY' flight simulations from home to the next level
A truly superb afternoon, thank you so much to Paul and Mak Arrived a little early, met by Paul and Mak who straight away asked me my level of knowledge so they could conduct my session at the right skill level for me. I extensively use my desk top pc with FSX flight simulator so I was really looking forward to the next best thing up from my desk top.
Paul sat with me in the simulator and talked my through some scenarios. I opted to fly from Gatwick to Heathrow using the SID's and STAR's and going into a holding pattern. Paul talked me through everything I was required to know to get the best out of my session. With Paul's instruction I hand flew from take off to touch down which was fantastic .Lots and lots of concentration required but huge satisfaction when I'd landed.
Second flight was Oakland to San Francisco, same as the previous flight Paul did not engage the autopilot at all.
After second flight I still had a bit of my 90 minutes left so Paul suggested an approach into Hong Kong's Kai Tak at night. Absolutely amazing, Paul pointed out points before we could see the checkerboard to get me in the right position to make the approach, amazing to see the checkboard and lights at night, I managed a pretty good landing at my first attempt but messed up the second attempt which would have been an overshoot but alas I ran out of time.
I cannot thank Paul and Mak enough for the time I spent with them. I will be returning to see them as soon as I can and hopefully for a little longer.
Fantastic experience, anyone interesting in flying should definitely do it What a most fantastic afternoon, thanks to Rafa and Gary for making the whole experience worth while.
Definitely recommend paying the extra for the pre flight checks, taxi and take off, you learn so much, it was a most fantastic experience and one I would definitely do again.
We managed EMA, BHX and two landings at Gibraltar in the time.
Nothing was too much trouble and the training was first class.
Thanks guys, hopefully see you again soon
Strasbourg to Innsbruck (Gate to Gate) Very comprehensive flight experience on 737-800 with a full brief on systems/procedures too. Thoroughly enjoyable all round. What a difference to the PA28, although the principles are broadly similar!
My instructor was MAK. Very easy going, and his approach, input and insight added to the day itself. Thanks MAK
Absolutely amazing experience This was absolutely amazing. As ex-RAF the Vulcan is iconic to me. My instructor/pilot was lovely, so informative and interested in us and not just getting on with it. My wife stood at the back watching the whole time and took pictures. I had the First Class package, which includes a video and picture. Amazing to try and feel how it feels to fly her. Would definitely recommend this.
B737 simulation Bought this by our 2 sons for my 65th birthday as I love flight sim on kyy pc..
Mak was my co-pilot and explained everything before the flight. He really is a superb instructor.
I chose to fly Gatwick to Jersey as a flight I have made several times before on my pc and so knew the route etc. I wasnt prepared for how I would feel ..... BLOWN AWAY. A tremendous experiance, lost my left engine, then electrics failure after the most appalling weather conditions, from a lovely sunny day to thunderstorms (talk about unlucky) finally landing on the engine, and landing visually (as apposed to ILS).
Mak, thank you a thousand times you were a great co-pilot and I look forward to flyong with you again
HIGHLY RECCOMENDED. ... Howard Walker
Vulcan Simulation Had a great time on the Vulcan simulator. Great set up and it’s amazing how much you feel like you are flying despite not moving. Andy (instructor) was a real enthusiast and gave it that feeling of being something special. Definitely recommend it to anyone interested in the Vulcan. Old school flying!
Great experience Great experience & ensure you realise Sywell is not full motion. That said it was still great fun & you soon realise how you need good hand eye coordination. Took off from Gatwick, around London landing @ Heathrow, the same a JFK. Could have chosen from thousands of airports. Great instructor who understood my level of experience & helped talk me through everything. Had enough confidence in me to turn off some helpful systems & ended up landing much better 2nd time around, was a very personal experience & would do it again. Realise what you going to, it’s not you flying a ‘fly by wire’A380 - this is more old schools & one that that is very enjoyable
Fantastic experience forgot we were in a simulator Our instructor Rafa was excellent claming and made us feel as easy, make the expierence that bit better, if was fabulous nothing short of excellent face hurt from smiling so much, going again as soon as possible
First class Fun day out. Bought it for a friend so I can’t give a first hand review. Think he enjoyed it. Seems happy.
Brilliant experience yesterday at Shoreham. Mak was brilliant from start to finish, great instructor. I really would recommend this to anyone who's ever wondered what goes on behind the cockpit door.
Excellent day & superb staff Had a 1 hour flight experience today which was a gift. I’d done 5 hours a loooong time ago and my pilot was superb. He gave me a great overview and offered to answer any questions I had. Honestly can’t rate this enough
What A Great Day !! I was expecting good, but didn't expect brilliant. The experience of flying from Southend to Paris (my selected departure and destination) gave me great respect for what is involved in being a pilot. The concentration required to 'Captain' a flight is quite intense, yet exhilarating. Totally recommend this as an experience. Thanks to all involved.
Great experience! What a great experience, as a non flyer, it was such fun and nice to dream! But very well done from start to finish. He took his time , from gate to gate, 2 landing in the 737- 800.
Thank you Robin.
It was an amazing experience, Daniel was very knowledgable and explained everything very well and was so friendly, would highly recommend
