The whole set up is extremely professional and everyone involved makes the experience so realistic.The simulator is awesome and makes you realise there is a lot more to flying an aircraft than we think.The instructor Nick was always calm and talked you through and explained all the procedures in a simple easy to understand mannerThe hour passed so quickly and really was an amazing realistic experience which I enjoyed immensely Have no hesitation in recommending the company and experience

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.

Wonderful experience for my 15yr old, myself and his dad. He was a lil nervous at first but was soon made to feel at ease by the pilot who explained everything to him. It was so realistic that I was a lil disappointed when we got off and we weren't actually in Newyork!! Haha x will defo come again! X

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.

Thanks for letting us know you enjoyed it. I think Pesto must have seen their business grown with the amount of our pilots who visit there!

We booked a flight experience for my daughter and what an experience, we were greeted and welcomed by a lovely lady who explained everything to us before going in to the simulator, our pilot gave us a warm welcome and invited us to our seats (there were three of us) the cockpit was just like a real aircraft with my daughter sitting in the co pilots seat and my wife and I behind we had a great view of all that was going on.

The pilot was informative very interesting and had us laughing with anecdotes, the simulator was just awesome with jet engine noises buzzers an audiable commentary just like the real thing .

We chose a flight from gatwick to amsterdam my daughter was encouraged to fly the aircraft at all times she loved it , the whole experience was adrenalin filled and well worth the low fee charged, the company is professional and i personally guarantee you will have an experience just like the real thing...........highly recommended.
