“Exiting but pricey”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

I have to say from the start that I did enjoy it. However as it is quite expensive I opted for a 30 minute session. Within that short time the pilot who basically does a lot for you (flaps, undercarriage, navigation in fact many of the things you want to do and learn yourself) explains the basics but as a keen virtual computer pilot, I know a lot already and wanted to know what and why he was pressing various buttons. The cockpit is as advertised, with all the hundreds of buttons and it would probably take an hour to explain them all. The simulation is static so you don't get any movement and although the graphics in the air are good as you see them through the cockpit window, the detail on the ground is a basic standard and the same from any airport you fly from and is no better than Microsoft flight simulator. Having said that, if you are a keen would be pilot, as I am, its a good experience leaving you wanting more..

“Great Experience”
Reviewed 4 February 2014

Booked the 90 min session for my husband as a birthday present. Being an enthusiastic aviator, he felt like it was a 9 min session… Time (literally) flew by. His instructor, a very nice licensed pilot, made the experience more professional and genuine.
Two comments:
1. When booking, check the last minute special offers before payment. It saved us 1,400 CZK (~€56).
2. Those escorting the "pilot" should take into consideration they need to keep quiet, in a dark room, for the entire length of the flight – not suitable for all.

“Great experience”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

I booked the fear of flight program as a surprise for my husband, as he once had a very bad experience on a flight and was anxious since then.
The program takes 1h and costs 3500CZK (135€). The instructor explained what are the procedures before and during the flight, then he showed my husband how to take off, fly and land. He could choose the destinations he wanted and set the weather, which was impressively realistic.
My husband enjoyed this experience and I liked it too, as I stayed in the cockpit during the program, as a "passenger".

“A320 under your control!”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

If you like me spotting the nearest planes above your head in your phone and loving entire industry with its spirit, challenging environment and technicality do not hesitate to try this attraction. Even if you spend only 30 minutes in the cockpit you will have the chance to feel like a professional heading A320 to the nearest airport under your full control.

A great experience accompanied by an equally amazing and very professional staff! Highly recommended for flying enthusiasts as well as complete beginners. The instructor's interference will conveniently vary depending on how much assistance you actually require. If you're an advanced simulator pilot, you're free to conduct the entire flight/approach yourself with the entire cockpit at your disposal, without any interference whatsoever. Whereas if you have no previous experience, the instructor will kindly explain to you all the relevant aspects of flying and will be there to help you land safely as well.
