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?

Had a fantastic time. Mak, the pilot who took the session was great in explaining everything. I can’t recommend it highly enough. If you have ever wondered what it’s like to be on the flight deck of a larger passenger plane you have to give it a go. You won’t forget this experience I Will definitely be booking for another go.

Well what can I say, a superb experience from start to finish. Andy made sure he understood my needs and could not have done more to ensure that I got the booking I wanted and Mak was a brilliant instructor with a lot of patience and made me feel very at ease attempting to fly the Airbus!. Not sure though that my passengers would have enjoyed those bumpy landings!!!

Many and varied scenarios and locations covered in the Airbus A320 - the hour’s flying passed in almost an instant but was great fun. Captain Mak is a terrific training captain who left me to handle turbulence, night landings, instrument and visual landings, cross winds and snow. With his expert guidance, I nevertheless made it onto the runway after each and every approach. A truly memorable experience and one to which I hope to return very soon. Virtually new equipment with first class graphics and realism. Thank you all at Full Motion Experience for a most enjoyable sim session. You can’t help but leave with a huge smile across your face that lasts for hours!

I had a PPL from 25 years previously This experience was brought as a present It brought my whole flying experience back to me . Mak was a great teacher and made the whole experience thoroughly enjoyable Flying in the a320 and the 737 simulator I was amazed the skills are closely related to what I had been taught in a cessna The same flying sweat returned as i tried to land on madeira and Katmandu ! What a great experience ; it brought the magic of flying totally back to me

Dear Captain Sia (Mak), Sincere thanks for an excellent training and flight simulation experience! It was a real pleasure and I learned so much from you. Your instruction and guidance was very clear. It certainly made me appreciate just how skilled and talented aircraft pilots have to be for the safety of their passengers and crew. Although I very much enjoy flying model aircraft, this experience provided me with a tremendous insight to flying the real thing! Keep Well & Best Wishes.
