Simulator Experiences

What is a Flight Simulator Experience?

At Aviation Insider, Simulator Experiences offer you the opportunity to delve into the airline world and take to the controls of a jet aircraft under the watchful eyes and guidance of our trained pilots.

Enjoy a 30 minutes briefing, then a 1 or 2hr simulator flight! easy peasy! Minimum Age 9+

Aviation Insider offer experiences ranging from basic introductions to airline flying, to challenging stormy approaches. Fly to your favourite holiday destination in the Airbus A320, or land at London’s world famous Heathrow Airport in the Queen of the Skies – the Boeing 747.

We offer a range of different simulator experiences like:

  • Big Jets: Flying large jet aircraft differs greatly from small light aircraft. Let your
    instructor take you through the basics of handling the big Jets.
  • Bad Weather: Landing an aircraft in bad weather is all part of the job for an airline pilot. Have a go at landing the big Jets in bad weather. Do you have what it takes?
  • Night Landings: Landing a large aircraft at night is very different from landing during daylight hours. The lack of visual cues makes it difficult for the pilot to assess where he or she may be in relation to the runway. Our instructors will take you through the techniques used by real airline pilots.
  • Create your own session by emailing us. We would be happy to try and accommodate your request.
