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.Hours This Week:

Ratedout of 5
We absolutely loved our experience from start to end. Our flight instructor Nick who is a pilot for one of the big airlines was the best instructor we could’ve asked for. We booked 80 minute experience and time just flew by. Nick was so patient, fun and an absolute natural at teaching us how to fly the plane. We really do believe that our experience was 5* all because of Nick and his kindness. 100% recommend booking the experience! If you have a curious mind and love planes I definitely recommend trying it. You are able to fly anywhere in the world through VR and any weather. The chair and every button is exactly what you’ll find in a real Boeing plane.

Great experience for aviation geeks and aspiring pilots, but I also think they are able to cater for novices. Ideal for individuals and small groups. My instructor, Domenic, was a friendly B737 airline pilot who was able to tailor the experience and answer all of my questions about flying. Thank you!

Having been invited to experience the FlightPad simulator experience, we had a fantastic time with the supportive staff who were excellent teachers - and it was thrilling to step into a model of a real plane cockpit & see the world as we learned to land, take off & fly from anywhere in the world!

I had a flightpad simulator experience gifted to me for my 15th birthday two years ago but wasn't able to do it due to covid, I managed to attend on the 25th of August 2021 and it was better than I'd imagined it to be. Domenic was very professional and I learnt a lot from him, he explained everything incredibly well, looking forward to returning. Thank you for such a great experience!
