Looking for a flight simulator experience with a difference? Well our Manchester simulator gives you the full flight deck experience – complete with a fully enclosed cockpit and replica aircraft cabin so up to 12 friends and family can fly with you!This is your ticket to the virtual skies and you will be the captain for the duration of your experience with an expert instructor alongside you in the simulator as First Officer for the flight. This Manchester venue may be nowhere near the airport but there is a definite airline theme as you ‘check in’ on arrival and have your photo taken for your special crew pass with friends and family waiting as airline passengers would in the departure lounge. Once you’ve had a pre-flight chat with the team about how the simulator works and what sort of flight experience you’re after you will all board the plane via the air bridge. This time you get to turn left and head straight onto the flight deck. This is the fascinating world that’s now behind locked doors. With all your passengers safely seated it’s time to dim the cabin lights make your welcome announcement and give details of your flight path. This simulator has some fantastic flight scenery packages available and it’s an incredibly realistic experience for you and your passengers as the images are in the cockpit and on all eight windows of the cabin. Head out of Manchester Luton Heathrow or Gatwick airport and it’s all systems go for a fabulous flight. What you want to do on your experience is totally up to you. You can simulate multiple flight take offs and landings tackle a tricky approach amidst the mountains of Innsbruck swoop over the city skylines of Paris and New York test your mettle over Kai Tak in Hong Kong or have fun on a charter to Palma de Mallorca. Whilst all this is happening in a discrete venue just north of Manchester you will feel a million miles away as you pilot this amazing fixed base flight simulator. Even your ‘self loading freight’ (that’s cheeky aviation-speak for us passengers!) behind you will be able to keep an eye on progress watching the flight deck’s onboard camera feed and checking out the moving flight path map. We think this full cabin display 737-800 flight simulator experience near Manchester is a brilliant day out for not just you the budding airline pilot but also your entourage who get to ‘fly’ with you. You can even allow one passenger at a time in the ‘jump seat’ a little fold down seat directly behind the captain in the cockpit. Brilliant stuff for any aviation fan – and their friends and family too!
