We travel quite a lot and every time we go on an aeroplane, my partner says he would be able to fly the plane if something happened. Time to put your words in to action! I bought him the 1 2 1 60 minute flight experience for christmas. The bonus for us was that I was able to join him for the pre flight briefing and join him in the cockpit for the flight. So no chance of him bigging himself up! Lol. The staff were extremely nice and made us feel very welcome. Pete, my partners pilot was a gem with extensive knowledge. We could listen to his stories forever! The pre flight briefing gave my partner a general understanding of the controls and which instruments he was going to be using and monitoring. The whole experience was a blast, however, my partner said it didn't feel like he had much input to flying the simulator himself. Maybe we had high expectations but we thought there just wasn't enough time. It would of been a little better if he had instructions from an air traffic controller ( perhaps pre recorded) and allowed to have put some data into the instruments himself.This would of made it much more realistic. A second experience would probably make the 'penny drop' but at £369 that's probably not going to happen. Overall a great once in a life time experience but could of been made a little more realistic. Thank you Pete, it was a total pleasure meeting you. X
