Flight Simulators Midlands are delighted to offer you a thrilling experience on board a real B737-800 motion simulator or a Boeing 747-400 Jumbo Jet simulator with simulated motion or an Airbus A320 real aircraft, converted into a simulator. All are fitted with the latest Glass Cockpit Instrumentation (PFD/ND or EFIS)and the latest graphics available. Fly the mountains around Salzburg or the waterways of Hong Kong. These simulators have trained thousands of professional pilots over the years. (They are not replica simulators like many on offer). Now it's your turn to sit where they did and learn the tricks of the trade. We highly recommend a full hours flight time to get the best from your visit. Welcome on board. Captain Chris Rigby (Chief Pilot FSM)

Had a brilliant few hours flying in a 737 simulator. From the first breifing about basic flight and aircraft controls to climbing into the simulator pilot seat can only be described as "awesome".

This was booked for my Son who is 13. Upon arrival we went through the pre flight information which was informative (just need to up the graphics a little on the PC's). In no time at all Joe our Pilot for the flight introduced himself and we went to the Airbus A320. My husband and I sat in the jump... More

Upon arrival we were greeted by a very welcoming and efficient young man who checked us in. We'd arrived early so we went upstairs to the cafe and had some hot drinks and sat and read some magazines. When our slot was due we were collected from the cafe and we had our souvenir photo taken which was fun, and... More

My Father was really looking forward to this experience and when taken, he was overjoyed with the 1 hr Simulator Flight on the B737. My Father is 80 and has numerous health problems, so before booking I rang the office and spoke to Milly for her thoughts. She advised the B737 and can't fault the choice. Our instructor was Rick...

Very impressive, and thoroughly enjoyable visit. Matt (my instructor) suggested a trip through the mountains piloting an Airbus 320, and back for an ILS landing. Matt also suggested a few things I might be doing wrong with my home PC flight simulator!

My 14 year old daughter flew the Boeing 737 simulator for 30 minutes and now can't stop smiling. Informative pre-flight briefing and instructor Rick was very friend and helpful, plus he put my daughter at ease with his enthusiastic tutelage. Now my daughter wants to be a pilot. Guess I'll have to sell a kidney ;-)

Great set-up, very friendly, accommodates everyone from those with a general interest who want to see what its like from the flight deck to those with a more technical interest. The pre-flight briefing is quite good, although its tough to cover everything from principles of flight right through to glass cockpit instrumentation and use of the Autopilot in 30 minutes....
