“The kids outdid the adults”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2012

This is a volunteer organisation run with real passion, which always adds to the experience. Our Gamer children far out shone their parents flying the flights simulators and they describe it as the highlight of their holiday

I paid for a session in a simulator for my husband. It was good fun and interesting and we spent a nice half hour looking at all the airplane bits a pieces on display. Staff are lovely and obliging.

“landing a Boeing 737-800 at Gatwick.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2012

My daughter Sarah got me a Flight on the Sim at Atlantic airventure,went to the Museum,great artifacs of flight.Groups of Adults and kids were taken to the simulators and explained the theory of Flight,then the fun of flying your own aircraft,those who chose the 737 Sim were taken into the cockpit,what a treat for me at least,i love Aircraft and before 9/11 could ask to visit the cockpit on my many flights,but now that is over.My instructer John was great cause he explained even the way to get into the left seat which is tight and not knock any of the hundreds of switches etc.It is a future glass cockpit on the latest 737s.After instruction we were 12 miles and 5000ft above the track to Gatwick,I took command of the aircraft and brought her in on Runway L,Thank you John,I am booking my next flight,Palinbook
