I have recently attended the ‘Fear of flying’ session with Mak and wanted to say a huge thank you for this amazing experience! I am an extremely nervous passenger and have done various courses, taken medication, had hypnotherapy and nothing is as good as this session. Mak is a true professional, so incredibly patient and explains everything so well. Despite me being so nervous, he made me feel at ease and gave me much confidence especially with turbulence (my greatest fear). The simulator is so realistic and I felt able to withstand turbulence at a much greater level than I had experienced before during a real flight. This is all due to Mak’s clear explanations of what is happening during flight. This course is outstanding value for money for anyone who is a nervous flyer or just wants to understand more about flying. It is so much better having a ‘one to one’ with an experienced pilot of Mak’s calibre, rather than attending a course with lots of other nervous flyers! It was a real bonus being able to have my partner join me in the simulator, which he really enjoyed and had a turn at landing the plane. I am due to fly to France in September and this time I feel confident that my partner will not have to coax and drag me into the plane. Very many thanks Mak for a great experience and also to Andy for liaising and making all the arrangements.

WOW - Had an opportunity to fly to the UK to fly this simulator and the experience was tremendous from top to bottom. The staff was very gracious & were helpful in answering EVERY question that we had & being accommodating to our busy schedule. The training pilot was incredibly helpful , knowledgeable, relaxed and wonderful company. The simulator itself was one of the most incredible things ive ever experienced. It’s capable of simulating virtually any experience you from catastrophic failure to calm flying! When you sit in the left seat you feel as if you’re the captain of a commercial jet liner! Highly recommend this experience!

I had an absolutely fantastic experience in the 737 sim. I am a PPL student, currently considering my options to continue my training and become a commercial pilot in the future. Getting a taste for how it feels to be behind the controls of a 737 was hugely inspiring and motivating, I couldn't stop thinking about it for days after! Captain Mak is fantastic and very generous with his knowledge. I couldn't recommend this experience more. If you're considering it, do it – you absolutely won't regret it.

What an amazing experience. This is the second time having been on the A320 last year. This time I flew the Full Motion Boeing 737 for an hour and enjoyed every minute. The instructor pilot, Mak, was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. We had four circuits including Malta, Newark, Kathmandu and finally Gatwick. Crash landed at Newark but had a “like a pro” perfect landing at Gatwick. The graphics are incredible and the movement and controls are exactly the same as a real plane.

Your Fear Of Flying course was SO helpful! Just completed a short return flight to Geneva (not Florence) with BA!! I needed a drink to set me up for each flight but I managed it ! I kept thinking about your explanations of turbulence and landing procedures and managed to stay calm. Thanks again for your support. Best wishes Christine (Surbiton)

Wow, what an experience. It was a birthday present and it fulfilled a long time dream. It exceeded my expectation, it was exciting, a little scary and, surprisingly, quite hard physically. I did the 737 as I was told it was the most realistic experience. From the initial extensive briefing to the hour 'flying' Mak, my instructor was tremendously helpful, professional and patient. Believe me this is a fantastic experience, not to be missed, I shall never forget it.

The perfect gift! My children saved up for this experience for me. It was just amazing! I had an hour in the 737 and you wouldn't believe how fast it flies by! My instructor was so knowledgeable and answered all of my MANY questions. We tried some challenging weather and even tried an exercise where an engine failed! Stressful but great fun! I'm saving up for my next one. Might try the A320 next time.

Absolutely awesome reality. I tried being a "passenger" talked down to an emergency landing at Gatwick by "air traffic control" after "both pilots became disabled". Stressful in the extreme but well worth it and I learned loads to add to my fixed base simulator experiences. My thanks to the team for making it so enjoyable for me.

I had a fantastic experience in their Boeing 737-800NG full motion simulator. Sia explained everything in an easy-to-understand yet detailed way. I took off, followed flight paths, practised stalls and also had a go at landing! I thoroughly recommend and look forward to having another go soon.

Second time, just as good! Had a second flight with Mak today. We did some landings into Gatwick, Madeira and Innsbruck with one engine out and turbulent weather. Such great fun and better than aa gym workout. Will definitely be back for a third visit soon.

I've done many fixed base simulators, but nothing beats this. Friendly and easy to book process, instructor Sia was 1st class. Greeted 30min before our flight, taken to our briefing room and pilot Sia asked few questions about my experience and what I would like to achieve, then he briefed me about the instruments and what I needed to do. Then off to the simulator, pilot Sia chose the airports for me which were, Madeira Gatwick and Innsbruck with one engine. Coming out the simulator I was so buzzing I wanted to do it again, pilot Sia really does give you an unforgettable experience. I loved it so much I've already booked my next 2hours. Top pilot top service top company I really highly recommend this experience to anyone. Thank you full motion experience for an unforgettable experience.

This was bought as a gift for me which I wasn't expecting.

I have a keen interest in aviation and have always wondered what it would feel like flying a jet airliner, until I came across full motion experience.

I was greeted by our pilot Sia who was very friendly, we sat in the briefing room discussing about my aviation background and what I would like to achieve from the 90minutes.

Sia my instructor a pilot and sim instructor was absolutely brilliant in explaining things and answering my 100s of questions.

This was the best 90minute experience I've ever had, I chose Gatwick, Funchal and Innsbruck, instructor Sia made the experience fun, challenging and educational. I loved it so much I have booked another 90minutes.

Thank you full motion experience and thank you pilot Sia.

I recommend this to anyone with or without experience it's worth every penny.

My ‘Fear of flying’ session with Sia last week. Firstly, I feel so fortunate to have had this experience in the simulator as I was absolutely terrified when I arrived. I am probably the worst passenger in the world and I have ran off planes and not boarded on some flights.

I have had to have medication to get me through flights. I have also completed the Virgin Flying With Confidence course which was slightly helpful, but nowhere near gave me the confidence that Sia has.

Sia put me at ease immediately and spent time with me talking through my fears. He was a true professional throughout my session whilst being friendly with such a calm approach. Sia really listened to me and explained how the aircraft manages through turbulence which is my greatest fear. He explained everything in such a way that I was able to understand. We went through scenarios and different turbulence and I was amazed that I was able to get through this. I think if I knew I was boarding a plane Sia was flying I would feel very confident. He is a fantastic person and both my partner and I felt privileged to have met him.

The course with Sia was outstanding value for money and I would highly recommend Sia to anyone who is a nervous passenger. My plan was to do this course and then to go on holiday next week. I was due to fly to Malta but obviously plans have changed. I really do feel though I would be able to do the flight and hope I can in the near future.

Full Motion Experience Please pass on my sincere thanks and gratitude to Sia.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!

My wife bought me 60 minutes in the full motion sim in the 737. We were greeted by Sia our instructor for the session.

Sia was absolutely amazing!! So informative and his wealth of knowledge really made the session. It’s as close to the real thing as I think you will get!

I couldn’t honestly recommend this highly enough.

If you have always wanted to have a go at flying a commercial jet then this is the experience for you!

I have always wanted to fly, but have never piloted anything other than a hang glider.

WOW now I believe I have! I have been in fixed base simulators before but this is on a whole different level.

Meet and greet was efficient and timely and the whole hour was spent at the controls with no waiting around or losing time for other reasons.

Instructor Sia found exactly the right balance of instruction and coaching and took into account my existing learning from my fixed base simulator experiences. My brain soon thought I was actually flying as the movement of the simulator combined with the superb quality visual and audio input persuaded it that I was.

I managed to control the flight with instruction and then managed a stressful but successful simulated Gatwick landing and taxi to a stand, complete with the bump on touchdown that I could improve on with some more time - I'll be saving my money for the next session. It is quite expensive, as these multi million pound simulators aren't cheap to run or hire and actually train real pilots, but in my book worth every penny as you won't get such a realistic experience elsewhere.

THANK YOU Full Motion Experience for a great time! See you again soon I hope.

I had an hour training on the 737 simulator, was definitely an experience that I will remember for a long time to come. Really great to get to experience the motion simulator, and what made it 10 times better was my fantastic instructor Sia.

Sia made the training really enjoyable while at the same time being very thorough with covering all the key aspects of flying the 737. He has a great way of putting people at ease and explaining things really well and patiently, the time was very well spent.

Thoroughly enjoyed the experience!

So, I just wanted to say what a wonderful time we had on Saturday! As you know I’ve been looking forward to this 737 simulator day for a long time now and everything met (even exceeded) my expectations. My daughter and I shared the two hours and Sia was an excellent, friendly and informative instructor. A great sense of humour yet also clear in the way he explained not just what to do, but also why. All day yesterday I found myself ‘re-living’ various aspects of the session, wishing I was back in that cockpit!

As you probably know, I’ve had sessions with you guys now for my daughter and myself as well as my three sons (although the youngest was too young to go in the full motion last year and had to do the fixed base experience). Looking forward to when he’s old enough and I’ll definitely come back to you to book him in again in a couple of years – it would be great if Sia’s available for that too!

Take care, and thank you once again for an unforgettable experience.

Sia was amazing! He put me completely at ease and somehow he even got me laughing whilst we were in the simulator! The whole morning was just such a great experience and the opportunity to speak to Sia and ask him questions was just invaluable. My husband and I are so glad we chose to do the full-motion simulator after the fixed-based session; it was well worth it. I’ve done fear of flying sessions with an airline (as well as other things to overcome my fear of flying), but nothing has felt so safe/ controlled and actually addressed the cause of my fears until the sessions.

I’ll be recommending the experiences to everyone and I’ll definitely be back for top-up sessions (or just for fun with family members who also want to try the simulators!).

I attended a fear of flying course last Sunday evening with instructor Sia. I wanted to drop you a brief note to provide some very positive feedback. Sia was very welcoming and did a great job at quickly putting myself at ease. He listened to my phobia and considered the course scenarios and content based upon my individual phobia thoughts and my background, this was absolutely fantastic.

He was very knowledgeable and answered my questions fully, this was great at filling me with confidence so much that I flew several crisis scenarios in the simulator which has really helped to put my mind at ease now. If someone would've told me before the session I would have done this I would never had believed them!

I really feel like he went above and beyond to ensure that no question was left unanswered to help me with my phobia, and his follow up texts are really appreciated as it feels like you don't have to struggle on your own. I am really grateful to Sia for this session and will have no hesitation in recommending friends to go for a session with him.

I am flying tomorrow evening and whilst still not exactly looking forward to the flight, I definitely more calm and confident as a result of the knowledge and experience I gained in the session.
