From Our Editors

The Emirates Aviation Experience in London has made it its mission to educate visitors about commercial air travel. Spread out across 300 square metres, state-of-the-art technology, interactive displays and aircraft models are on-hand to show and tell people how modern aviation works, and how it came about. Expert staff can also impart their knowledge, and guests can even step into the shoes of a pilot themselves with a flight simulation experience.

The experience was fun but I considered it overpriced for what was offered in terms of content.

The person to whom I gifted this item said it was a terrific experience , really exciting and great fun. Landing a plan in Honkong was more than a little nerve racking!!!

The cafe is fab. Give yourself time to do the exhibition too. You can do the cable car and the flight simulators as a package. If you drive, there are car parks within two minutes' walk.

It had been my impression that this was an actual simulator experience, rather than just an oversized computer game! There is hardly any sound, no movement and very little real interaction - you certainly don't feel like you are flying at all and it is almost boring for those who are not in the pilot seat! Even with the Groupon discount it seemed expensive for what it was and the additional charge for the rest of our party made it even more costly. This was part of a birthday gift and I ended up apologising after because it was not what I had expected at all. It is advertised as a life-like flying experience and it certainly is not. The lady showing us what to do was friendly and kind enough to allow us an extra 5 minutes so that all our 3 kids could have a turn 'flying'. I would not recommend it to anyone who is looking for a flight simulator experience.

Superb value. The guide for the Sim flight -Connor- was superb with my twelve year old boy. Informative but never condescending. The Sim itself was also excellent. I can recommend for any budding pilots.

Not very exciting. Maybe needs to explain more about the experience, for example the simulator does not move and is not enclosed. Lots of them all together. Still had a nice half hour, but with 3 of you doing it, it's not long enough.
