Aeronauts can take to the skies with a 30-minute or one-hour simulation in a virtual Boeing 737. Visitors can attempt taking off and landing at their choice of airports worldwide, including Heathrow and Hong Kong Kai Tak. With a side-kick instructor helping to guide apprentices, many major manoeuvres of commercial flights are undertaken, including lining up at the runway, taking off and landing smoothly, and shaking the throttle for turbulence.

Fulfilling dreams of the high-life with sleek simulators and experienced trainers, iPilot recreates the experience of flying into 24,000 locations around the world. The simulator at Shepherd’s Bush Westfield Shopping Centre is similar to a cockpit of a commercial passenger jet, with overhead panel, throttle quadrant, sticks and pedals. The jet-setting experience providers have centres globally and have been featured in a host of national newspapers.
iPilot saw its score reach heights of 4/5 on TripAdvisor, earning it a 2013 Certificate of Excellence from the site, with the simulator also recommended by 89% of 70 surveyed Groupon users. While a few visitors would have enjoyed full motion and more enclosed cockpit, the majority of reviewers were eager to praise the helpful staff and enjoyed their flying time. Several users noted particular airports they enjoyed flying in and out of, with others feeling it improved their understanding of flying theory.
