Where can I do flight simulation in Northern England?
The Flight Experience centre has 4 different experiences on offer, and there will be various stages to each session. If you want to fly the Boeing 737 or the Airbus A320, the plane will start completely turned off, and your instructor will guide you through how to initiate its systems. You’ll then taxi to the runway, execute the takeoff and then cruise through the skies, flying to the airport of your choice across the world, while managing various aspects of the cockpit under the guidance of your instructor. If you want the best of both worlds, you can book a combined simulator experience to fly both planes, or an ultimate simulation experience, where you’ll fly with a current airline pilot for 90 minutes.
- The Airbus A320 and Boeing 737 experiences start at £85 for 30 minutes, up to £260 for 150 minutes.
- You do not need any experience – this is designed for all levels including beginners.
- The centre operates by appointment only, with the minimum notice being 1 hour.
