This 60 minute flight simulator experience is a great way to fly a fighter jet without having to leave the safety of the ground. You’ll learn everything necessary to take control of a plane – including taking off, flying and landing - as you take your seat in the cockpit of a real jet fighter and fly over a virtual landscape under the guidance of an expert instructor. This really is as close as you can get to flying one of these classic planes, and you’ll even be kitted out in a full flight suit including anti-G pants, helmet and mask.
Upon arrival you will be met by your instructor, who will welcome you with complimentary drinks before giving you a pre-flight briefing. You will then be kitted out in a full flight suit, including anti-G pants, helmet and gas mask. Your instructor will then take you to the simulator – the cockpit of a real jet fighter - and he will be on hand to help you to climb into the cockpit and strap you into the ejector seat. Your helmet and oxygen mask double up as your intercom to keep you in touch with the instructor, who will be in the rear cockpit to give assistance when necessary during your time at the controls of the jet fighter.

During your experience you will be able to start up, taxi the plane to the runway, take-off, fly and land at your choice of virtual airports. The simulator uses photo real scenery which will enable you to follow roads and coastlines, towns and cities and use the navigational equipment in the cockpit to find your way – and as your simulation will be in real time, you’ll even experience real weather conditions.

surprisingly good gift Very interesting experience.. great instruction & good to be able to have a good go yourself. would recommend to anyone wishing to try this kind of thing. 24 June 2014
A Great Experience We arrived at the Stalybridge venue with our son-in-law, the recipient of the experience, a little early after allowing for traffic delays that thankfully didn't materialise. We were welcomed by Ian and Susan and after a pre-flight briefing the 'pilot' was kitted out with flying suite and helmet etc and took his place in the front seat of the simulator. The rest of us were seated in an upstairs room, complete with mugs of coffee, where we were able to view the same display as the pilot together with radar coverage of the flight and another screen showing a distant view of the plane in flight. After take off and a flight down the Menai Strait, the instructor performed a few loop the loops and rolls together with a pass under the Menai bridge. After this the 'pilot' took over the controls and after a bit of heather clipping on top of the Welsh mountains succeeded in performing some pretty good loops and a bit of inverted flying before heading back to the airfield. All in all a great day enjoyed by 'pilot'and onlookers alike. 14 June 2014
Top experience So you think you can fly a fast jet? This experience will prove it one way or another. Great realism, great fun and great tuition. Indeed experience made special by being able to 'fly' at times with no help from the instructor. And the wife watched it all on monitors in the reception - so she knows the real truth (unfortunately). 22 April 2014
Buzz the Menai Bridge I had a brilliant totally immersive experience from the get-go. Nothing was too much trouble and the team were very friendly. Amazing piece of engineering and software. 27 March 2014
