Dear Terrence44, Thank you for your review. On weekends and public holidays our admin offices are closed. Additionally, we write in our booking confirmation (in red letters) to be there maximum 10 minutes early. Our pilots, as was the case on this occasion, come down to the entrance 5 minutes before the scheduled time to pick up the customers. We... More

I was given a 1 hour session as a Birthday present and it was very good. There are some limitations (no rudders or movement), but all the other instruments, sound, and visuals very good. For the avoidance of doubt this is not a full-on motion simulator, but then this one is about 1/3 price. I've done both and this one... More

Bought as present. Had to wait on the street until it was time for my experience. Lucky weather was good. Would not recommend. Waste of time and effort to get to Edgeware Road.

Hello Paula, Thank you for your review. We usually close our stores if there is a customer flying so the customer will not be disturbed during their flight. That is the reason we tell our customers, it is also written in our booking confirmation email, to be there max. 10 minutes before the appointment. Edgware Road is the nearest tube... More

Had this as a gift from my partner, very realistic flying. Instructor was very good going though all the controls. I had a 60 mins flying time , which I think is a must , or longer to get the real feel of the experience.

Dear elenamadgett, Thank you for your review. Unfortunately you only had a 15 Minutes Flight Experience, which is good for a taster. We recommend a minimum duration of 30 or 60 minutes, especially for beginners. Our instructors are trained and they are trying to make the experience as realistic as possible.

Kids really interesting in flying so I booked a session on this 737-800 full flight simulator. Tuition really patient and clear. We were all taking off and landing successfully. Staff were super helpful before and during our visit. Thoroughly recommend it and have booked another session. Go try it out.
