120 Minute Flight Simulator Experience in Lancashire
We really like this Vintage Flying Experience within easy reach of Stacksteads, Lancashire.
Many have wondered what it feels like to take the reins of a mighty jumbo jet, but few discover what it really feels like! This convincing, high-tech experience allows aspiring pilots to control a Boeing 737 using the latest simulation software for a full two-hour flight, with a real commercial pilot next to them to offer one-on-one guidance. Beginning with a welcome, briefing on the genuine flight controls and refreshments, the next step is to select a take-off and landing airport from a range of international destinations, before choosing the weather conditions and time of day to fly in. Then it’s time to get comfy in the convincing cockpit, which boasts a 180 degree wraparounds screen and outstanding graphics, before taking to the air!
Seven days a week throughout the year (opening hours are 10am – 6pm), excluding bank holidays.
Lasts around two hours and 15 minutes, including two hours in the simulator.
The experience is held on a one-to-one basis with a qualified instructor.
One spectator is welcome to come along and watch the action inside the flight simulator with you.
Please wear comfortable flat-soled shoes (no heels or sandals).
Minimum age is 12 (children under the age of 16 must be accompanied in the simulator by a non-participating adult).
Each of the centre’s flight simulator instructors are trained commercial airline pilots.
