Over 5000 of this series of Boeing jet airliner have been produced so far and it’s used by short and medium-haul airlines all over the world. In fact the chances are you’ve flown on one of these at some point. It’s the most popular plane in RyanAir’s fleet for example.And although the simulator is physically based at Gloucestershire Airport you can choose where you’d like to depart from. A chat with your sim instructors who know the flight system inside out can help advise you on your choice. Some people like to fly into airports they’ve already been to (your favourite holiday destination is always popular) others want to test their mettle at an airport with a tricky approach. You can even control the weather to add in an extra factor to your flight!The sim boasts 120 degree graphics that are utterly convincing You’ll feel like you are really at the airport waiting at the end of the runway to take off in your very own Boeing 737-800. It makes all the right noises too.

The most popular duration is 60 minutes which allows you enough time to try take offs and landings from several airports. If you fancy really getting a feel of what the job of Boeing driver is like day to day on the two hour sim session there’s enough time to fly a full sector.
