The Deal

  • $44 for a 30-minute flight-simulator experience ($89 value)

After an introduction, you’ll slip into the high-fidelity cockpit of a Boeing 737-700 Next Generation flight simulator. An exact replica of its namesake plane, the simulator features a 180-degree wraparound screen and a standard-issue “extra peanuts” button for the copilot. An instructor will supervise as you spend 30 minutes taxiing to the runway, taking off, and practicing your level flying, turning, and smooth landing. As you fly, familiar landmarks appear on the panoramic screen, giving you a real taste of the pilot experience.

Flightdeck Flight Simulation Center

"Shake it!" your headset blares as you push on the jet's throttle. Your nose tips, the ground becomes a wall, and you're diving in a last-ditch effort to lose the fighter behind you. Its shots go wide and it swoops overhead, leaving you to level out just as the radio tower ends the dogfight: "Knock it off, knock it off." With your wheels back on the ground, you step out of the simulator's cockpit and catch your friend’s eye: Missed me.

At Flightdeck Flight Simulation Center, aerial battles between friends take place on the ground. The screens of nine authentic military fighter-jet simulators broadcast the same views a pilot might see while soaring at 600 knots. Though the simulators remain on the ground, all the controls, radio orders, and UFO weigh stations mirror those encountered on an actual flight. People may come in with a friend or with a party, where guests and friends target one another during virtual missions, from the introductory Fox-1 experience to the three-hour Viper-1 course, which covers advanced topics such as missile avoidance. After team-building events, participants can even receive personalized dog tags as souvenirs.

Flightdeck Flight Simulation Center also has an exact replica of a Boeing 737-700 cockpit. Inside, a 180-degree wraparound screen transports pilots to airport runways from around the world. Commercial-flight drills present common challenges such as piloting through turbulence and wiping spilled coffee off the controls, testing visitors between their takeoff and landing.

So much fun. Great facility, trainers and experience

Fun experience

It's OK you get what you pay for. Obviously an actual flight simulation center would be more expensive. This is good for the kids.
