Flightdeck Flight Simulation Center, Anaheim

Experience the thrill of air combat in an F-16 at Flightdeck Flight Simulation Center. Put on your flight suit, then get briefed on aircraft controls and flying maneuvers before heading into one of the eight F-16 simulators. Cruise down the runway and begin a dogfight as you go head to head with other pilots. After the battle, test your landing during day and night conditions. Hang out afterward in the officers' club and compare your scores. Guests can view and listen to all of the action on large LCD monitors, as well as hear the interactions between pilots. Boeing 737 flights are also available for 30-, 60-, or 90-minute intervals. You can choose from several levels of missions for more advanced training. Advance reservations are required.

  • Flighdeck hosted our corporate entertainment event and it was a great experience for the team. They hosted us in two groups, which switched between dog fighting and jumbo jet landing. Fun competitions...  more »

  • Considering I wasn't feeling well the day we went, I actually had a great time. The instructors were nice and funny. They explained everything before we actually sat in the simulators. While in the simulators, they continually gave instructions to make sure your experience was enjoyable. I would certainly go back and do it again the next time I am in town. Super fun.
  • The experience is fun but it's a little confusing who this is for. It has a very laser tag feel to going through the briefing and setup. It's​ really cool to climb into a mock fighter but the end experience is not much better than a stick and throttle setup at home. It was very disappointing to not have rudder pedals in the plane as it's weird to bank and yank in a fighter. The software looks like a very capable simulator but unfortunately is limited by the hardware available. It was fun but pricey and short.
  • This was great. I recommend it to anyone who wants to have 2 pure hours of fun. I took my brother and our 65 year old parents and we all had an awesome time. The flight training class with Roke was great, taught you what you needed to know. And being in dog fighting in the f-16 simulator was extremely convincing and life like. Would definitely do as a work outing or with a bunch of friends. If you're slightly curious, you'll definitely be glad you did it. It's a very cool space with a very friendly team. Leanne answering the phones during the morning was particularly helpful.

  • Waldo was the best flight instructor. He taught me well. I will never forget Waldo because he knew his information and he knew how to teach it to me.

Where to stay in Anaheim
