Overview

Flight Simulators Midlands are delighted to offer you a thrilling experience on board a real B737-800 motion simulator or a Boeing 747-400 Jumbo Jet simulator with simulated motion or an Airbus A320 real aircraft, converted into a simulator. All are fitted with the latest Glass Cockpit Instrumentation (PFD/ND or EFIS)and the latest graphics available. Fly the mountains around Salzburg or the waterways of Hong Kong. These simulators have trained thousands of professional pilots over the years. (They are not replica simulators like many on offer). Now it's your turn to sit where they did and learn the tricks of the trade. We highly recommend a full hours flight time to get the best from your visit. Welcome on board. Captain Chris Rigby (Chief Pilot FSM)

Had a great time and made to feel very welcome. Our instructor, Penny Bowen, was very knowledgeable and patient and gave us both the confidence to fly. Well recommended.

Glad you had a good time with Rick. Yes the 737 is an excellent motion simulator and less than half the price of any other motion simulator in this country, so do book and come again. See you soon - Captain Chris Rigby

The flight simulator at the Coventry transport museum is absolutely fabulous. Sitting in the simulator, you can feel the real energy behind you, rushing and breaking the world speed record. Absolutely fabulous, for the enthusiasm. Must give it a go.
