You could almost make a perfect vacation in this complex. Fly your own vacation flight to St. Maarten. Land on the famous airport next to the beach. Then you can go to biitsi.fi place to feel the beach. But seriously speaking. Very nice simulator experience....More

Enjoyed this experience enormously! The customer service during the booking - and our numerous change requests - was excellent. The guiding during the take-off and landing procedures was professional and friendly. Can recommend this highly to everyone!

Got a captain course as a gift and wow, the visit beat all my expectations! From excellent hosting and training from co-pilot Panu to the very immersive experience of flying an Airbus. Recommended to anybody with or without experience in flying!

I did the "most dangerous approaches" program and it was really cool to fly them with the sim. It is really immersive with the full cockpit.
