This 60 minute flight simulator experience is a great way to fly a fighter jet without having to leave the safety of the ground. You’ll learn everything necessary to take control of a plane – including taking off, flying and landing - as you take your seat in the cockpit of a real jet fighter and fly over a virtual landscape under the guidance of an expert instructor. This really is as close as you can get to flying one of these classic planes, and you’ll even be kitted out in a full flight suit including anti-G pants, helmet and mask.

Upon arrival you will be met by your instructor, who will welcome you with complimentary drinks before giving you a pre-flight briefing. You will then be kitted out in a full flight suit, including anti-G pants, helmet and gas mask. Your instructor will then take you to the simulator – the cockpit of a real jet fighter - and he will be on hand to help you to climb into the cockpit and strap you into the ejector seat. Your helmet and oxygen mask double up as your intercom to keep you in touch with the instructor, who will be in the rear cockpit to give assistance when necessary during your time at the controls of the jet fighter. During your experience you will be able to start up, taxi the plane to the runway, take-off, fly and land at your choice of virtual airports. The simulator uses photo real scenery which will enable you to follow roads and coastlines, towns and cities and use the navigational equipment in the cockpit to find your way – and as your simulation will be in real time, you’ll even experience real weather conditions.
