Had a great hour in the simulator with several take offs and landings (day time,night time, fog and engine failure). Great experience and would recommend a... More

We booked this along with a weekend stay in Harrogate, Real Simulation is only a 15 minute drive from the town so it was a perfect base for us. The day starts with a coffee and a bit of form filling before you enter the hangar, then comes the pre-flight briefing by Jim who makes thing sound so easy. I... More

Just spent a brilliant two hours with my 13 year old son on the F4 flight simulator! The instructor, a former pilot, spent an hour going through the controls of the F4 while also discussing flying procedures, flight characteristics and even trivia about the F4. The flight simulation was great with several flights in many different conditions and the hour... More

I purchased a flight on a Phantom for my Husband's Birthday and I would highly recommend it. He had a brilliant time. I also attended the briefing- the Instructor was friendly, knowledgeable and made me feel welcome. I watched my Husband's flight- and plan to have a go myself next time!

My partner bought me the 60 minute Phantom F-4 experience on the recommendation of a friend in the RAF. From start to finish I cannot fault the experience and if it was not 275 miles away I would probably be back on a monthly basis! Given the excellent "pre-flight" briefing (boosted by the welcome coffee) I was able to enjoy... More
