From Our Editors
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.
Absolutely fantastic day out. The staff were fantastic, the experience is great. Perhaps the best 14th birthday pressie of them all!

Take your money but very difficult to book a session. When you do get one they offer times that are antisocial that are difficult to make
It would have been 5 stars but poor communication, let it down greatly. I requested twice if there was anything different to telephone to inform us, this never happened. The really important one was the time slot we were booked into was.brought forward half an hour. It was pure chance we turned up early.

Have to wait 3 months and pay £10 surcharge which means no savings by paying through Groupon! 🤔
Worth the money, my 2 boys aged 14 and 12 loved their 30 minute gaming VR session. Excellent helpful staff and a good range of games.
Great experience in the 737, Neil was a brilliant tutor and extremely knowledgable, will definitely be booking another trip.
Great experience thank you
Quiet easy. Great coaching and very entertaining
there was very limited available dates for this event. There were and no day time times available, 16.30 was the earliest. I ended up having to book for a Sunday and getting a £10 additional fee !!
Very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed the experience very much. Hope to try another aircraft soon.
