Had a fantastic 60 minute flight experience here. Nick, my instructor was a very pleasant,capable and experienced pilot who wasted no time in getting me settled in and 'ready to fly'. (So no time lost and straight into the task on hand). A suggested flight from East Midlands airport to Edinburgh airport was perfect. Nick showed me how to enter the flight plan into the computer (nothing at all technical thank goodness). Then we were off! I enjoyed every minute and was grateful for Nick providing just the right amount of support so that I really did do all the flying while he handled all the other tasks such as the engines, wheels, flaps, etc. I was very grateful for that! I had a brilliant time from start to finish.

What a fantastic experience. We booked this hour long flight session for our son for his tenth birthday, we looked at several places and spoke to a few of them, but these guys came across so friendly.
I can’t fault them from the first phone call we made to the experience itself every step of the way, we dealt with very professional and friendly people.
It really is the perfect gift for anyone who is interested in flying or planes.
My son Callum is obsessed with planes, and is determined to be a pilot one day.
After nagging us to take him to the airport regularly to watch planes landing and taking off we thought about trying a real life simulator. This blew our minds. I can’t stress just how comfortable and welcome we were made to feel.
Thanks to everyone there for making my sons birthday very special, and we will see you again soon.
We have already booked while we were there to do another session.

Fantastic afternoon in this flight simulator. The staff were so friendly and helpful answering the many questions I put to them. If you want an enjoyable and exhilarating experience you must try this flight simulator. I`ve already booked my next flight and thinking about the one after that.

The staff at VFE are to be complimented on excellent customer service from first contact. Went out of their way to accommodate a flight experience for my boys. Actual experience was professional and fun. Thank you to Steve and team - highly recommended
