I had a great experience flying a Boeing 737 from Gatwick to Schipol under the expert tuition of Nick and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to have a taste of what being a pilot is all about.

Hi Amanda and thanks for your feedback. Sorry we could not take you to the real New York but hopefully we got close enough!

From our arrival to our departure, we were treated with courtesy, consideration and respect. The flight simulation was very enjoyable, educational, kind and friendly. Finally, its location next to an excellent pub (Great italian food), made it a good day out for us.
