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.

My wife bought me this as a Christmas present. Captain Lowen was very informative and patient and made this a most enjoyable hour, "flying" a Spitfire and fulfilling a childhood dream. An excellent experience.
