We did the Fox 1 & 2. It was a very realistic simulation. Instructors were very informative and helpful. Would go back again. Looking forward to trying the 737 experience when I go back.

I signed up for the Fox 1 fighter jet session. Everything ran smoothly and on time. It was pure joy flying over Korea shooting down enemy fighter jets and seeing what it was like first hand to sit in a F-16 cockpit. Before flying you...More

As a fighter pilot in my youth, I thought I would be good at dog fighting in an F-16 Simulator. I was average. Young guys and gals with computer and video game skills, plus faster reflexes, were much better. This is an awesome experience for...More

I'm not sure. The best thing to do is to call the FlightDeck folks and ask them. They are very helpful and friendly.

There is no weight restriction but there is a size restriction. For example someone who is 6 foot 6 inches and weighs 280lbs would fit but not someone who is 5 foot 10 inches and 280lbs. Hope this helps.
