About the Airbus A330 Aircraft

The Airbus A330 is one of the most reliable aircraft in the sky with over 20 years of innovation behind it.

When you fly this aircraft you will have between 210 and 250 virtual passengers behind you! With a 222-inch-wide twin-aisle fuselage, the A330-200 can have as many as 406 seats. You’ll notice this wider body when you enter the cockpit but more importantly should you decide to depart or arrive at one of the more challenging airports. Wide body means less space to manoeuvre on the ground and potentially in the air depending on where you are.  

As with all Airbus jetliners, it uses fly-by-wire digital controls, a side stick in hand you now have the opportunity to control this amazing piece of aviation

Why choose Full Motion Experience?

Our instructors are all fully qualified commercial and simulator pilots. They bring to you a wealth of knowledge and experience, combined 30 years and over 45,000 hours of flight time in the air.

A Commercial Pilot’s Licence is expensive, between £50k and £100k. Flying one of these full motion flight simulators is as close as you can get to the feel of being an airline pilot at a fraction of the cost. Yes, it is more expensive than a fixed base flight simulator but you will also find that it is a completely different experience.

It really is incomparable when you walk up to the simulator, close the door and the steps are retracted to allow the fully hydraulic driven its 6 degrees of freedom.

As far as we know, for simulators of this calibre, we are the most reasonable by way of pricing – up to a 20% saving . This isn’t to say that we lack in service, we just believe that this fantastic experience should be more accessible to the people who love aviation as much as we do.

L3Harris have given special permission to use the Airbus A330 Full Motion Flight Simulator, a £15 million flight simulator, usually reserved for commercial and military pilot training. We are incredibly pleased to be able to offer experiences in these amazing tools of flight training. Each simulator is given a rating (Level D) which allows for it to be used for training professional pilots. These simulators are able to simulate all aircraft systems that are accessible from the flight deck which is critical to training … you wouldn’t want a new pilot to practise 10,000ft above your house would you?

What can I expect from my experience?
Ready to book? Need to know more?

You will receive an e-voucher that has 12 months’ validity. Anytime in that 12 month period you can give us a call, or send an email and we will organise the experience.

We will need to look at the dates of availability of the Full Motion Simulators and then have that match up with your availability. You will be vying for flight time with commercial and military pilots, so to ensure your slot in the Level D flight simulators I would book as soon as possible after receiving the voucher.

Once your date has been locked in we do the rest. The simulator and your instructor will be waiting for you on the day. If you have any special requests by way of flight locations, specific things you want to work on, landings for example … or anything else. Let us know ahead of time as we can tailor the experience to your liking.

If you have more questions, please follow the link to the FAQs below. You may find that they hold the answer you need. It may be quicker than asking us too!

My interest in aviation started with the basic Cessna 182RG flight simulation on my pc, and always wondered whether I had learnt enough to be able to fly a commercial jet. The opportunity to find out came when my very generous wife bought my first surprise Full Motion Experience. Naturally, I was a little apprehensive not knowing exactly what to expect but need not have been all thanks to the friendly manner of instructor Captain Mak. As part of the briefing he can assess your abilities, knowledge and relevant experience and tailor the experience to suit perfectly. That first experience was truly instructive, pleasurable and memorable. My reactions must have been obvious as my wife booked a second one which turned out to be equally great ! I would thoroughly recommend anyone with the slightest inclination to try this rewarding experience to book with Full Motion Experience. The process is so simple and communication with them (Andy) is excellent.

Anyone looking to experience what it is like to pilot a real passenger jet then Full Motion Experience is the place to come. This is a world class facility with experienced commercial jet pilots. Mac was our instructor and he explained and prepared everything on the day. I will never forget my flight which was both enjoyable and challenging.

My brother Andrew and I contacted Full Motion for the A320 Full Motion simulator experience, asked a few questions that were answered quickly, and we booked a two hour slot based on their ability. From start to finish it was a smooth and flawless experience. Mak our sim instructor was friendly, professional and accomodating with all the scenarios we wanted to fly through and practice. We highly endorse Full Motion and the L3 Harris facility making the entire process enjoyable and stress free.
