Learn what it’s like to pilot a commercial Boeing 737-800 aircraft with this private, flight simulation exercise. During this thrilling, one-of-a-kind outing, you’ll attend a safety briefing, practice general handling, and then, with your instructor, take the plane through different circuits. Practice landing in bad weather, simulate engine failure, and otherwise test your piloting mettle.

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Jet Sim School, Unit 9 Maxwell Road Woodston Industrial Estate, Peterborough PE2 7HU England

After arriving at our simulator school, one of our highly experienced instructors will give you a safety briefing and discuss the basics of flying our Boeing 737 flight deck. We will ask you which of the 24,000 airports in the world that can serve the Boeing 737 you would like to fly from (so get thinking!) Once boarded onto the aircraft, you will take your seat in the Captain's chair to the left and your instructor will assume the role of your First officer on the right. There is room for up to eight spectators to watch from the cabin. Time to take off and it's straight over to you! With the instructor's guidance, you will fly over 70 tonnes of metal, jet fuel and passengers into the sky! Here at Jet Sim School, we firmly believe in letting you be the boss of your flight!

I had been bought a voucher for this experience last December, however, due to lock down did not get to use this until September 2020. I was not really sure what to expect (I have played flight sims on PCs etc, however, have not been in the cockpit of an airliner since the days when small children were allowed to go upfront (Like in Airplane!). There were good instructions provided as to how to deal with the current covid-19 issue. We had not picked up that they had moved since the voucher had been bought so we went initially to the wrong place (perhaps a poor start from a viewpoint of then virtual-flying an aircraft). The instructor was very thorough but also really friendly. Due to covid-19 they have not yet been able to complete the approach to the simulator, however, in due course it will be like walking on an airbridge. The voucher entitled me to an hour, however, I am pretty sure that we had somewhat more than this. It is really quite intense but fascinating and leaves you in awe of the people who do this for a living. It was interesting to find that one of our favourite holiday destinations involves a tricky approach over mountains with nothing other than visuals to help with the approach to landing! It was quite hairy! One of the unforeseen challenges is quite how difficult these aircraft are to steer on the ground! A great experience. You do get the opportunity to buy a memstick video of your experience and it was interesting to look over. Great experience, very informative and great fun.

Really fantastic experience. It was the first time I'd done anything like this, the instructor took the time to ask questions to understand my prior knowledge and what I was interested in so the experience could be tailored to my preferences. During the experience the instructor was hugely patient and really clear while managing it so that I could get as much as possible from the experience and help ensure it was successful. I would highly recommend no matter what experience you might have as they will coach you through everything and make it a really rewarding and enjoyable experience.

I bought this as a surprise birthday present for my husband and the title of this review is a quote from the man himself! Arrived at the school to a warm welcome. Both of us were included in the briefing, even though I wasn't taking part and not a second of this time was deducted from the experience duration that I had booked. The cockpit was very authentic and actually very interesting to me as the back seat passenger - I had thought I might get a little bored sitting watching but I was utterly engaged for the entire time. More importantly, my husband loved every second and can't wait to go back. His instructor was engaging, patient and funny and made every minute in the simulator count.

Was recommended to me by someone and ended up booking the 60 minute session, with the Fire It Up addon. By far the best decision I've made.

My son absolutely loved this flight experience. Stu was great with him and went out of his way to make the whole event special for all of us. A fun and friendly service that we would definitely book again without hesitation.
