We were fortunate to have bulkhead seats on the flight Melbourne to LA The extra leg room and stand-up space reduced the trauma of a flight of 16 hours plus We also had the privilege of interaction with flight staff Worth consideration

This is a most amazing simulation experience and well worth doing, or giving as a gift for a special birthday, which is how I came to it. The cockpit is not a mock-up, but the real deal, and the outside screens do an excellent job....More

Went on the 60 minute Flight package. The cockpit is a total replica of a 737 plane, with all the knobs and buttons that work. My co-pilot Andrew was very good at explaining how it all comes together and what to do. After a take...More

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
