This is no game! Our high-tech simulators utilise the latest technology to fool your senses into believing you are captaining a jet airliner. Flight Experience is similar to the flight simulators that airlines use to train their commercial pilots, and its 100% authentic replica cockpit delivers a total immersion virtual reality environment.
Strap into the captain’s seat, plant your feet on the rudder pedals and clamp the thrust levers and control column... You’ve had a full briefing from your instructor and you’re ready to fly the plane!
After clearance from Air Traffic Control, you advance the throttles and your Boeing 737 hurtles down the runway and lifts off, climbing to 2000ft before banking into a 45° turn away from the airport.
Forget sightseeing; you need to manage your air speed, maintain your altitude and watch your heading whilst simultaneously monitoring a dazzling array of screens and indicators.
Your destination awaits you, and whether you’ve chosen your local airport, an international hub airport or a white-knuckle approach (like Hong Kong's Kai Tak or Paro's short, 17,000ft peak-surrounded runway) you must keep a cool head to apply your new aviator skills to nail your landing.
The Boeing 737 is the most popular and successful jet airliner ever produced. It is used by most major world airlines, such as Qantas, Virgin, United and British Airways. With the City Circuits, you’ll get 45 minutes which can be used to visit two cities and make three or four circuits taking off and landing and from the nearby airports.
Reward yourself with this Experience or surprise a loved one and help them realise their fantasy of becoming an Airline Pilot. They’ll love you for it. (We can even provide the Captain’s hat and jacket!) With this Experience get the chance to be the pilot and discover what it’s really like in the cockpit of this amazing jet airliner and don’t worry, we’re here to guide and assist you.
As the Pilot-in-Command you will be partnered with an Approved Flight Instructor who doubles as your First Officer. Your flight plan will be decided after a detailed Pre-Flight briefing. With thousands of cities to choose from, or with guidance from us, you select your departure airport. After watching an informative video presentation to help understand the array of instruments, gauges and controls, you’ll enter the cockpit.
Our diverse range of products caters to those with no aviation experience right through to the professional pilot wishing to train or renew their licences with our CASA (Civil Aviation Safety Authority) approval.
We have two ‘jump seats” so your Experience can be shared with others at no extra charge. At the end of the flight session, we offer souvenir cockpit photos and DVDs to re-live the dream!
