Do you ever wonder what all goes on in the cockpit of a passenger jet. The opportunity to experience what it would be like to take the controls of a large passenger jet is not available to the public in most cities, however London does have one such attraction - London Flight Experience Flight Simulator. This attraction offers a very realistic and immersive experience and is highly recommended by many of those who have tried it.
London Flight Experience Flight Simulator features a scale replica of a modern Boeing 737 cockpit with virtually every control simulated. More than just a ride, this is a real learning experience. With the exception of a motion platform this simulator is very much like the simulators used to train real pilots. Your experience will include a briefing and instruction from an actual pilot throughout the session. No previous experience is necessary. You will have the opportunity to take-off, fly and land in a very realistic and immersive virtual 737 airliner.
There are a variety of different experiences and price points available. The location is easy to get to via the Underground and only a 4 minute walk from the station.
This is certainly an experience to consider if you are interested in planes and aviation, but in most cases you must book your experience in advance, so be sure to visit their official website linked above.

Ratedout of 5
Had a awesome time. Great simulator, very realistic. And the instructor Umar was very helpful, communicates very clearly and makes you feel at ease. Was very surprised how heavy the controls are given you are flying a 737-800 and delayed response from the controls, which makes the session realistic. Overall had a great time was buzzing with adrenaline after managing to land the jet at Kai Tak Airport. Friendly welcome from Paul. Highly recommend Flight Experience as a gift or if you would like to have flight deck experience.

Fabulous experience and highly recommended. Took off and landed at Changi, Singapore in the Boeing 737-800, under expert guidance from the friendly co-pilot. Then we departed Hong Kong International Airport and landed at the old airport, Kai Tak, at night and in a thunderstorm! Great fun and great tuition from the instructor.

I can only recommend. Good simulator, excellent instructor. Perfect communication prior to the session. Very friendly atmosphere. I especially appreciate that Flight Experience managed to fit the session in on my son's actual birthday. Thank you again :-)
