Overview
More
We are a Flight Simulator Experience venue with an AVRO Vulcan B2 bomber simulator with themed briefing room where up to 6 guests can watch your flight via video feed and a Boeing 737-800 simulator with replica cabin to seat 12 guests. Our aircrafts are a Boeing 737-800 NG and an AVRO Vulcan B2 which are both fixed base state of the art simulators with very humble beginnings. Your flight and the experience you have with us is the most important thing and we tailor your time to suit what you want to do, whether thats flying from A-B, Touch and Go Manoeuvres or hand flying into some of the trickier locations we have to offer. We also have a large departure lounge and meeting rooms and can cater for groups both private and corporate.

Visited here for an hour’s experience in the 737-800 sim. Was absolutely brilliant. Great instructor and is the closest I’ll ever get to the real thing. Would definitely recommend it and would love to do it again

Hi Linda, Thanks for your enquiry, the Vulcan does indeed vibrate to give the feeling of motion. If I can be of any further assistance please let me know. Kind regards, Vicky Everson
