We offer a range of packages to suit your budget, time and interest. All packages include a DVD recording of your flight, allowing you to replay the adventure from within the cockpit.
30 Minute Flight ($175)
This short flight offers a compact sampler of what it feels like to take the controls of a commercial jet airliner. You can select from thousands of airports around the world. Popular choices include flying around Paris at dusk, seeing the sights of Rome from the air or flying a circuit of your local airport. Whatever your choice, you can take the time to admire some familiar landmarks, but only if you can tear your eyes away from the cockpit screens and instruments! Apply your new skills to execute a perfect landing at the end of your flight.
45 Minute Flight ($225)
The 45 minute package allows you to combine introductory flight training with the opportunity to see the world. Master the basics of take-offs and landings in a modern jet aircraft while experiencing some of the world’s great sights. Recommended flights include: Las Vegas to Grand Canyon; New York City – depart JFK and arrive La Guardia; London – depart Luton and arrive Heathrow; Canberra to Sydney; or a “touch and go” at Hong Kong’s Kai Tak.
Take a regional sector flight from your local airport and navigate your way to another airport in your region. On landing at your destination, test your skills by trying a challenging approach. Perform an instrument approach in minimum visibility, or land the aircraft at night, or in severe wind shear.
Develop your skills with take-offs and landings. Complete a couple of circuits of your local airport to hone your flying abilities before tackling a difficult approach. Take your pick from our extensive menu – including Innsbruck in a snowstorm and Madeira’s famous Funchal Airport, where the short runway is surrounded by high mountains and the ocean.
60 Minute Flight ($275)
The 60 minute flight is our most popular package. Whether it’s your first time on the flight deck, or you’re an experienced simulator pilot, this package delivers an outstanding selection of flights. Perfect your skills with a series of take-offs and landings, or perhaps a sector flight from one city to another. For the experienced aviator, why not try a challenging approach or landing in bad weather? Whatever your choice, you’ll be exhilarated by the thrill of flying a modern jet aircraft over some spectacular sights.
Fly from London to Paris, Boston to New York, Christchurch to Queenstown or Melbourne to Sydney. Or select a city pair from our menu of 20,000-plus airports. You’ll use real airline procedures and checklists as you take the captain’s seat for the entire flight – from take-off to landing.
Take-Offs and Landings
Practise the most challenging aspects of flight – taking off and landing. And just when you think you’ve mastered the skills, we’ll throw a gusting crosswind or reduced visibility at you to test your ability.
There are a number of airports famous for their white-knuckle approaches. Whether it’s Kai Tak’s towering skyscrapers, St Maarten’s perilous beach approach, Paro’s short runway nestled among 17,000ft Himalayan peaks, or any other aeronautical thriller – it’s your choice.
90 Minute Flight ($375)
With the ultimate package, you’ll experience the full joy of flying. Extend yourself with a flight around your local airport, including take-off and landing. Then set yourself the challenge of flying a City-to-City sector. You might decide to really test your new skills by flying the sector in adverse weather, or land at an airport known for its challenging approach. Get your adrenalin pumping by managing an in-flight emergency and diverting to another airport.
The serious enthusiast might decide to pilot the 737-800 in a multi-city airline run. This package includes a full cockpit orientation, route briefing, entering the data into the Flight Management Computer and executing the checklists. You will be flying the aircraft according to airline Standard Operating Procedures, and you can select your departure airport from our full range of 20,000-plus airports. The ultimate package delivers the ultimate challenge.
Watch this space
We’ve got some new packages in development that will let you experience “life on the line.” You will fly multiple legs from city to city from start up to shut down, reprogramming the systems and flying tight, efficient routes against the clock over great scenery around the world. We’re also working on “emergency scenarios” to really test out your flying skills: do you have what it takes to safely bring back a crippled airliner?
