Would-be fly boys and girls can get behind the controls of a commercial airliner and simulate the mighty task of safely returning the plane and all of it’s precious human cargo back to terra firma safely. Joining a group of six fellow flight cadets, customers will sit in the hot-seat and be assisted by a co-pilot, before swapping seats to help out on another important landing, lasting 15 minutes (usually £59). Alternatively guests can go for a one-on-one session lasting 30 (Usually £99) or 60 (Usually £134) minutes. In this case attendees will meet in an airport-themed reception and receive a short briefing from their exclusive instructor. then take a seat in the captain’s chair and get the show on the runway. Throttling forward at full thrust ahead, session time will begin only as the aircraft’s wheels leave the tarmac, and when flight time is up, budding pilots can land at a choice of famous airport and complete a disembarkation and debriefing before heading home, looking gleefully skyward all the while.
