  • Wow!!! Had this experience given to me as a birthday present and loved every minute. I had Sam (instructor) as my 1st Officer and his professional guidance made sure we all returned without incident. A must do for anyone with a sense for adventure.
  • Such a fun experience. Bought this for my partners birthday and as a self confessed plane need he loved it. The team (Pilot Sam) were super patient and helpful plus really down to earth. I was made to feel part of the experience which was also nice. Definitely recommend!
  • Such a good experience, worth every penny. Sam who was my pilot was great teacher and answered every question I asked him.
  • My Experience with FLIGHT EXPERIENCE (Boeing 737-800 Simulator) in Sydney During our stay in Sydney, Australia, in January 2019, my wife Lisa made me a fantastic birthday present. She knew that as a computer scientist, I was generally interested in technology and especially in flying and wanted for a long time to experience a flight in a state-of-the-art flight simulator. The FLIGHT EXPERIENCE Simulator in Sydney is located at the Harborside Shopping Center, adjacent to our hotel on Darling Harbor and Lisa gave me a voucher for a 1 hour flight simulator for a BOEING 737-800 including the video that captured the entire cockpit stay. The reception was fantastic. The friendly instructor Jonathan welcomed us and completed the training and briefing. He explained in detail the instruments and switches of the plane and wanted to know at which airports I wanted to start and land (I was allowed to select two). Of course I choosed my home airport Zurich, Switzerland and our favorite airport Lindbergh International Airport San Diego in California. And then we took place in the cockpit, a wonderful feeling. Lisa took a few pictures of me in the captain's seat. Jonathan explained again all the instruments and switches and then we went, after working through the checklists, for the first start with the Boeing 737-800. I had to concentrate myself tightly, because a lot of information came to me, but after some time after the start I was able to cruise relaxed with the plane and prepare for the first landing in Zurich. There I did (of course with the professional help of Jonathan) a landing in summertime a go-around maneuver and then flew over me very well-known cities, villages, rivers, lakes and terrain and prepared a little later the second landing, this time in winter, with snowy terrain. In the second stage we flew to Lindbergh International Airport in San Diego, once a day and once a night. In conclusion I can say that I was amazed at how much automatic in the Boeing 737-800 at the start, cruising and landing supports the pilot and gives a good security. Since I had already done some simulation flights on my PC with military jets, I was soon familiar with the most important instruments, such as artificial horizon, compass, speed and engine power. The biggest difficulty for me however, were the processes that were unknown to me, i.e. in which order which manipulations have to be performed. That's what pilots have to learn in long theoretical and practical training. But Jonathan as an experienced pilot led me competently but unobtrusively through the processes. All in all this hour in the flight simulator was a fantastic experience and I was able to appreciate how exciting it must be for pilots to be able to fly such a machine with 200 passengers. Many thanks to Lisa and the FLIGHT EXPERIENCE team for this unique experience.
  • We have been bringing our son here for years and the experience just gets better every time. The staff are accommodating, patient and highly knowledgeable. This is a great experience for young and old.
