60 Minute Flight Simulator Experience in Northamptonshire
Get a load of this Vintage Flying Experience located handily in Sywell, Northamptonshire.
Calling all aspiring pilots, get a taste of the real thing (well, almost!) with this cutting-edge simulation experience. Get comfortable in a pilot’s chair in front of a 180 degree wraparound screen with high-tech graphics and genuine Boeing 737 cockpit controls, with a professional instructor on hand to offer guidance and encouragement. Start with a briefing and refreshments, before picking airports to take off from and land at; there’s a huge range of countries and climates, and pilots can even select which time of day they’ll be taking off. Then the fun begins: take the controls, start the engine and head down the runway, utilising real commercial flying skills to manoeuvre this huge jumbo jet into the air and safely to its destination.
Seven days a week throughout the year (opening hours are 10am – 6pm), excluding bank holidays.
Lasts around 1hr 15 minutes, including a briefing and 60 minutes in the flight 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.
