Take the controls and learn to fly a Boeing-737!

This experience is perfect for the first-time flyer who wants to discover what's happening in the cockpit during flight. You’ll feel like a real pilot as you push the throttle, adjust the rudder, and guide the plane’s nose towards the sky before attaining optimal altitude. It’s a unique, unforgettable adventure for almost any age and experience level!

Take a flight over your favorite city! During each simulator experience the pilot (that would be you) can select their airport of departure, weather conditions, and time of day.

The 737-800 flight simulator exactly reproduces the flight deck of a Boeing 737 NG. The seats, throttles, pedals, yoke, and switches are original parts of the real Boeing aircraft. The flight deck is a 1/1 scale reproduction with all the aircraft systems in the flight deck operational. The cockpit is surrounded by a 220° wraparound screen with HD imagery giving you a ‘as real as it gets’ feeling.
