From Our Editors

Based in Burwell on the outskirts of Newmarket, Sim2do lets budding aviators take charge of a full-size Boeing 737/800 simulator. The company was formed by the Mockford family, who boast a history in flight control dating back to the First World War. They converted a formerly operational Boeing airliner into a virtual training pod in 2012, in which guests can try out their flying skills for up to 90 minutes or hire it out for the whole day. It’s suitable as both a fun activity and as practice for pilots.

Great experience for my partner’s birthday. I loved that I could sit in the jump seat and watch. We opted for the 90 minute experience which was perfect, allowing enough time for the briefing and then to get to grips with the controls! My partner was very pleased to land safely at Gatwick airport!

The simulator itself was very authentic unfortunately the Captain was less than pleasant. Even before entering the Sim I found him churlish. As my father was being seated I told the chap that he was hard of hearing despite him wearing hearing aids. Despite this instructions were mumbled, condescending and at times down right rude. He gave no consideration to my father's age or ability to hear, let alone his flexibility to be able to get out of the seat. At the end of the session, when my father was clearly showing some distress that he hadn't heard very well did the attitude of the Captain start to be tempered. Interesting it was also the point at which he went back into "salesman" mode and was telling us of other flying experiences they offered. So kit is impressive - customer interaction appalling.
