60 Minute Flight Simulator Experience in 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.
