The aviation experience was an added extra after our trip on the Emirates Air Line. We did not get on the simulator as it was occupied but enjoyed the interactive exhibition. It was great fun playing the games but very informative as well. I didn’t...More

I paid 60 British pounds to fly a 777 for 30 minutes. I was told I could do a number of landings in that time. The lady who was called the instructor knew only the most basic things about the instrument panel. She could not...More

B777 or Airbus 380 flight simulator. In the next 30 min you will learn how to fly a jet. How to take off and land. So funny to see how you will crash yourself into the trees.

This was an excellent experience involving the very able, friendly and informative Jackie and her colleague from Corsica. I was able to experiment with various airports and learned good skills. We intend to re-visit.

Got on the Emirates skyline and added the Emirates experience onto the ticket. Not worth it. Just an advertisment for Emirates. The only thing dlualf decent would be the flight Sims but you have to book and pay extra. Save your the me and money
