We are on a holiday from
Australia and we brought our boys aged 11,13 & 15 for the flight simulations- one did the 737 experience and the others the F16 and they all absolutely loved it. The instructors were brilliant and it was so realistic....More

He wants to try the fighter jets next, but to me that looked more like a video game, this was...More
There is no weight restriction but there is a size restriction. For example someone who is 6 foot 6 inches and weighs 280lbs would fit but not someone who is 5 foot 10 inches and 280lbs. Hope this helps.
