Horizon Flight Center’s qualified flight instructors accompany airborne acolytes in full-motion flight simulators, where guests can experience the adrenaline rush of flying without the long lines at airport security. For 30 minutes or a whole hour, faux flights zoom through digital clouds, through make-believe wind, and among wisecracking seagulls for students to record the adventure in a first-time-pilot logbook with an instructor endorsement. Pupils familiarize themselves with the Garmin G1000’s glass cockpit, which prepares them to manipulate other switchboards upon actual airborne aircrafts. After its completion, the flight-simulation experience can be counted toward pilot proficiency, instrument proficiency, or a juggling-while-flying plaque.
