Messerschmit Simulator.
Ìt wasn't a jet, a Second World War German fighter plane. The instructor, Andy. was very helpful (he built it) and the simulator was really realistic with surrounding screens that made you feel you were actually flying! I've been on other simulators but I found this "aircraft " difficult to control and even crashed trying to take off, never mind land! But then, you're thrown in the deep end, so to speak, and it's only a bit of fun. Makes you appreciate what airmen on both sides experienced during the war and I can recommend it to anyone interested in trying something different. Well worth it.

Yes, these aircraft were very tricky to fly. Probably as many pilots died training, landing or doing other manoeuvres as were killed in the conflict. The P51 had heaps more power so maybe come and have a go in that one too. - Captain Chris

Top flight experience
Oct 2021
Wow!! What a great experience! Pilot Josh did a brilliant job. Briefings and tuition top class. Taking off and landing from challenging airports with very realistic 'views' and banking at 6.000 feet over the Alps watching the landscape changing below was amazing. All felt very real. Big thank you to Josh for making this a very special experience and also to Captain Chris Rigby and all the team for managing my pre-Covid booking and making it happen.
The experience was shared with my two adult sons. We combined two bookings which really made the most of our time in the simulators with Josh. We would certainly do it again and would recommend to anyone looking for an informative and fun experience that can be done any time of the year.

I experienced the Boeing 747 simulator. My pilot Josh was very friendly and explained things perfectly along the way. It was so realistic and although my booking was for an hour the time just flew! Would recommend this experience 100%. All the staff were really helpful and friendly. I had a fantastic time.

Oct 2021 • Family
Went here with my family for my Dad to experience the Boeing 747 flight simulator. Our pilot, Paul, was very friendly and made the experience really engaging and fun. My Dad thoroughly enjoyed it and it was fun for everyone even though we were the “passengers.” It was a great experience and would recommend.

Fantastic!
My 10 year old Son flew with Josh on the A320 simulator this weekend and had a fantastic time!

After learning the basics of handling a jet plane, Josh then familiarised him with the instrument panel (a real A320 cockpit, re-purosed especially for the sim) and they took off from Dubai, had 1/2 hour air time over the gulf and then completed a smooth landing back on Runway 2.

This place is fantastic and I would highly recommend the experience and the staff who were all professional, helpful and friendly.
We will definitely be back!

The best fun you'll have in a very long time!
Sep 2021
A couple of days before my flight, i got a phone call saying the motion on the 737 was out of action, and it was up to me whether to attend or rebook, i chose to attend.

Upon i arrival, all the staff were great. Once we checked in ( excuse the pun ) we watched the pre flight instructional video on how to fly the 737, then we met our Captain - Sarah. She was great, so laid back, made me feel at ease. Once we got in the cockpit, she explained what we had to do for the pre flight checklist ( i felt like i was a real co pilot! ), work our the fuel, the heading, the autopilot etc.

Flying was truly amazing, the graphics were brilliant, all the sounds coming from the cockpit were so real. I flew from New Yorks Laguardia, around Manhattan, Statue of Liberty, and back into JFK. Second flight was from Las Vegas, flying around the strip of Las Vegas, and back to Las Vegas. I had an hour in the cockpit and it was such an amazing time. Even though the motion wasn't working, it didnt detract from the experience in any way.

Thanks alot to all the team, and see you again soon.

Fabulous experience
Sep 2021 • Solo
I was gifted a flight simulator experience for my 30th birthday which was last year and FSM was kind enough to let me keep my voucher and rebook for this year which was great - my dad and I had our flight simulator experience today with Josh and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. Josh was our lovely captain who explained everything to us and helped us fly our 747 to and from our chosen airport. I really enjoyed the whole experience and feel that this has topped off my love for aviation and would love to do it again soon. Thanks again to Josh for everything today, it really did feel like we were flying.

Experience the job of an airline pilot !
A great experience that I would recommend to others.

I flew an Airbus A320 in and out of Zurich airport, over the Alps, and also in and out of the famous old Kai Tak airport in Hong Kong.

I was superbly hosted and coached by Josh.

Learned to fly in 2 hours :-)

Brilliant day out - highly recommended
Sep 2021
I did my flight on Friday 3rd September 2021, I flew the A320 Airbus & it was brilliant. My partner bought me the experience as a Christmas present after completing a Flying without Fear course……….. I have a fear of flying but I’m fascinated by aircraft & aviation. On arriving at Coventry we were met by Chris Rigby who is very friendly & welcoming, not to mention very knowledgeable & professional. After watching the flight briefing, which was very informative, I met Josh, my Instructor Pilot. Josh is brilliant. He was really friendly & I felt comfortable with him straight away. He is also very knowledgeable & professional. I did 2 flights & got a real adrenaline rush……..in fact it’s quite addictive! I’ve booked to do another flight on the 747 👍😀 Fabulous afternoon, lovely people, thank you to everyone at Flyfsm.
