Description

Virtual Aerospace is the UK's largest flight simulator company, home to three fixed base Boeing 737 simulators which professional pilots use to practice drills and emergencies. With a great reputation, superior facilities and world-known partners, they are the premier choice for both flight experiences and professional flight training.

Arriving at the airport-inspired reception, you will be escorted to meet operations staff and enjoy pre-flight refreshments. When ready, make your way to the fully operational Boeing 737NG (Next Generation) used to train professional pilots. The to-scale simulator mimics a real aircraft, affording a realistic experience for aviation enthusiasts.

Join fully-qualified commercial pilots in a tailor-made, 1-on-1 session aboard any of the simulator fleet. A friend or family member can even join you in the cockpit and share in the experience from the jump seat as you virtually fly to one of 24,000 world airports available. A 180 degree screen, extremely realistic out-of-window scenery and proper aircraft noises will trick your senses and get the adrenaline pumping.

Practice take-offs and landings, try your hand at engine failures, fires or hundreds of other emergencies or simply test your skills flying into some of the world’s most challenging airports. With hands on the controls for the entirety of the flight, this is an immersive and thrilling experience.
