Overview

Fly A Flight, flight simulation is based in Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire. It is a small, family run business which helps keep the costs down allowing our clients the best, personal experiences for the most affordable prices. Fly A Flight is run by a pilot with over 25 years of experience on many different types of light aircraft and many hours of 737 simulator training. The simulator is a fixed base Boeing 737NG to exact scale, running full commercial software and hardware for the novice. You do not need any previous flying experience to be able to take part! We can fly from any airport worldwide in any weather day or night and have many various scenarios available for all levels of ability. We now also offer a unique Spitfire MK9 and Messerschmitt BF109 flight experience. Both simulators built to original specifications with full working gauges and controls.

First time I've tried out a simulator, wish I'd done it before! Really enjoyed it, and the Captain's coaching and support were superb. Definitely recommend, and will go back there myself very soon hopefully. Jamie
