Located close to Newcastle International Airport and helmed by a qualified aerobatic display pilot with over ten years’ experience, Flight Sim Centre offers budding pilots a chance to get behind the controls of a trio of simulators. Visitors can try flying a Boeing 737, with options ranging from short trial flights to flying a circuit of Newcastle Airport or even taking on the infamously challenging approach at Kai Tak Airport, Hong Kong. Alternatively, hop behind the controls of an F-35 fighter jet for a fighter pilot experience, or don a VR headset to try out dogfighting in a Spitfire. Sessions can be arranged to special occasions, with simulators available for transportation to a particular location, while the company also offers pilot refresher sessions, stag and hen parties, and more.
