SimJet Center

Once visitors take a seat in one of SimJet Center's replica Boeing and Airbus cockpits, they're pilots—almost. They can control what sort of flight they take; for example, they can embark on a gate-to-gate flight between any two airports or tackle a flight with a built-in challenge. And they can also man the fully interactive and functional cockpit controls. The resulting experience is so lifelike that it serves as pilots' license practice, in addition to an adventure for hobbyists. But there are some subtle hints that it's all a simulation: An instructor oversees from the passenger seat and—perhaps the bigger giveaway—the simulators never leave the ground.

Customer Reviews

Everything was great! Owner and instructor were friendly, helpful, and energetic. The simulator was very realistic and you actually felt like you were flying. Bring a camera or phone to take pictures and video!

Our son had a fantastic time flying in the A320 simulator. Paul and Dinos were fantastic with my child and answered his questions and explained everything to him. His smile was huge when he landed the aircraft in Austin, even after if his first attempt was an aborted landing! He has already asked when he could go back. Very pleasant experience and recommend.

I took my 11yr old daughter to the sim class! She wants to be a pilot when she grows up! Wolf took his time and taught her a lot of the basics and made it easy for her to understand! She had a great time and wants to go back! Kelley was super friendly and returned my calls promptly and made sure My daughter felt welcomed!
