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)

Utterly astonishing I cannot recommend this highly enough. The whole experience from start to finish was wonderful. All the staff were brilliant but in particular the pilot who was in the simulator with me, Andrew, was the perfect host. Friendly, chatty, helpful and interesting. Brilliant guy. The simulator was fantastic. I expected to feel tipping to the left and right,... More

Thanks David. Andrew is our tech wiz kid so you were in good hands. Come and try one of the other simulators. The 737 also has motion and although the 747 is static, your brain tells you that you are moving. We've had people fall out of their seats in there. It's so realistic. Look forward to seeing you again.... More

From the very beginning it was first class, the initial tutorial was explained in... More

The whole experience lasted around one hour, before entering into the flight simulator, an online tutorial was given which basically informs you of some of the dynamics of flying. Since we were a party of four, the instructor said "the pilot trainee" from our party could fly the Airbus as there was enough passenger seats for three in the Airbus... More

Very pleased you had such a good time with Andrew. We have professional aircrew coming to fly the Airbus, just to practice their handling skills because they don't get enough manual flying when they are working, so you can be sure how realistic it is. Do come and see us again - Captain Chris Rigby More

Glad he had a good time Sue. You might be stuck with an annual trip to see us with him. Once he's got the bug!! I was 14 when I decided I wanted to become an airline pilot. The careers officer suggested I should be a policeman. No, that's not what I wanted to do. Captain Chris Rigby More

My wife and I bought this experience for our 23 year old son as a Christmas gift. What I didn't realise was that my wife also bought one for my birthday!

Flying a flight simulator was something I'd always wanted to do, so I was very excited when I got a voucher for Christmas allowing me to do just that on the Boeing 737 simulator!

Well done Kelvin. You can come back anytime. If you didn't buy another voucher on the day with the £50 return discount offer, you can still get £25 off as a past guest so do mention that when you phone to book. - Captain Chris Rigby More

Was bought a 30 minute Boeing 747 experience for my birthday, and my only complaint would be that it simply wasn't long enough! Absolutely go for an hour, it's well worth the money.
