Frequently asked questions
Not at all, the simulator experience is tailored around the needs of each customer regardless of experience or aptitude, whether you are a beginner or a qualified pilot. The session will be conducted with a flight brief beforehand, which gives the instructor an indication of your level of experience prior to commencing the session.
FIXED BASE Level 1 FBS: Boeing 737-800
FIXED BASE Level 2 FBT: Airbus A320, Boeing 737-800
FULL MOTION Level D FFS: Airbus A320 and A330, Boeing 737, 747, 757, 767, 777 and 787
Our fixed base simulators are (FBS) Level1, and are used by professional airline pilots for Jet Orientation Course (JOC), aircraft handling, procedural training and Line Oriented Flight Training (LOFT) exercises. They do not move, but by employing high quality visual systems along with vibration devices and audio-visual cuing your brain is tricked into thinking you’re actually moving. It’s not uncommon for the instructor to be asked at the end of the session “what motion platform was in use?” the answer is of course none, it’s all an illusion! – you’re senses have simply been fooled into thinking you were actually moving!
All participants under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult over the age of 18.
Because the cockpit is a genuine scale replica, it may not be suitable for people of certain body dimensions (height or weight). The space available is compact and if you are in any doubt as to whether you or others will be able to use the simulator, we recommend that you get in touch with us before you purchase any of our experience.
Please note that a degree of physical mobility will be required in order to access the flight deck and take up your seat in the cockpit.
Our (FFS) Full Flight Simulators or Full Motion Simulators may not be suitable for customers who are prone to motion sickness or with photo sensitive epilepsy / sensitivity to strobe lighting effects, have back or neck problems and those who are pregnant. It is your responsibility to ensure that you are in good health before booking to use the simulator.
If you have any queries about how a medical condition may affect your experience, then please contact our team who will be happy to discuss matters with you.
Our full motion simulators are not large spaces, and the facility operates 24 hours a day and is used by the airlines to maintain their pilots currency, so you may only bring a maximum of 2 adults (over 16) with you to the simulator, unfortunately the centre cannot accommodate more people than this.
