Where are we going today?
Ever wondered how you actually fly a plane? What goes on behind those doors to the cockpit?
Flight Experience lets everyone over 10 years old experience it first hand in their very realistic and super fun flight simulators!
It's about as close to the real thing as you might get! What's great - if you battle with nerves of flying, or just haven't had the opportunity to get on a real plane, you can enjoy it all without having to leave the ground (or the US!)
When you arrive, you will be taken to get your boarding pass at Check-In. (We did say it's just like the real thing!). You will then meet your First Officers, who are all real pilots and done all the training, so you will be in great hands! Use this opportunity to ask them any questions you have always wanted!
After an initial briefing, it's time to FLY! You get in your cockpit, strap yourself in, and take to the controls! What does it feel like as the nose wheels lift off the ground? YOU are in control! Take in the incredible sights as you fly across the world, but don't forget there's still a lot of work to do - no rest for the pilots!
Once you reach one of the 24,000 airports that you can choose from, you begin your descent. It's perfect for those who have never been in a plane, and just as great for experienced pilots. If you do have that extra level of experience, there are always extra challenges you can take on, such as bad weather.
There are a number of flights that you can choose from, but the 60 minute one is their most popular. There are seats for two extra people so if you want mum and dad to come and watch, at no extra charge they can come and see how you've done!
An incredible experience for anyone, and one you will never forget!

Flying Start is geared especially for students, where they can be put in the Captain’s seat of a Boeing 737. A great way for kids to learn about aviation from professional pilots! .
Any Top Tips?
There are cheaper, shorter packages available, but kids always seem to love the 60 minutes. 30 just seems not long enough! .
Can I get one of those?
You can grab a number of Boeing merchandise, or even a DVD of your actual flight! .
Parents can watch with the two extra seats in the cockpit (at no extra charge!).
