A nice Vintage Flying Experience in Sywell, Northamptonshire.
Aspiring pilots will relish the challenge of taking the captain’s seat in a convincing Boeing 737 cockpit as part of this ultra-realistic flight simulator experience, which can be completely personalised. Begin with a briefing and refreshments from a professional instructor, who’ll offer one-to-one advice throughout the flight, before a planning session. Choose the time, weather and location of take-off; some may want to try a night flight over the continent, whilst others may want to fly through a sunny afternoon in the USA, but every route offers its own challenges. Start up the jumbo jet using real Boeing controls, paying close attention to the realistic wraparound screen, and prepare for take-off and a total flight time of two hours.
Seven days a week throughout the year (opening hours are 10am – 6pm), excluding bank holidays.
Lasts around two and a quarter hours, including a briefing and two hours in the flight simulator.
The experience is held on a one-to-one basis with a qualified instructor.
One spectator is welcome to come along and watch the action inside the flight simulator with you.
Please wear comfortable flat-soled shoes (no heels or sandals).
Minimum age is 12 (children under the age of 16 must be accompanied in the simulator by a non-participating adult).
Each of the centre’s flight simulator instructors are trained commercial airline pilots.
