I booked one hour in the simulator and I had a great time in it. I usually fly the Airbus A320 in a flight simulator on my computer at home, so flying it in a full size cockpit was amazing. It is also good for people who know nothing about airplanes and want to try it, and you can even bring more people as passengers for free.

I also appreciated their night offer, which costs half than usual! As I was in Prague for tourism, besides saving me some good money, I was able to go there without interrupting my visit to the city.

My son and I spent an hour this morning at iPilot. During our hour the instructor Captain Martin was awesome. He speaks good English, he is patient and explains a lot.
He worked with my eleven year old son to keep it interesting , he let him choose airports and even simulated an engine fire with a single engined landing.
The simulator runs seven computers, requires a full time instructor and significant hardware, very interesting.

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..

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.

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".
