What's included

Up to two spectators can join you in the cockpit.

Well what can I say? I mean when are you ever going to get to fly a 747! So realistic in terms of motion. The actual cabin does not actually move on hydraulics but you would never believe it if you did not know! A great experience and a great day out.

Get an hour flight. I wish I'd got two. My view is that is great value for a once in a lifetime experience everyone can enjoy. Wish I had one of these in the basement!

Interesting insight into complexity of being a pilot. Extending to full hour on simulator would be worthwhile as would give more time to get used to controls.

15 January 2015 John United Kingdom

New experience that was informative and enjoyable.
