Why choose? Fly both! We offer the Combo B737 & A320 Full Motion Flight Simulators
In the Combo B737 & A320 experience you’ll notice that the flight times are a little different. We don’t believe 60 minutes is enough time to get to grips with BOTH of the simulators.
As such we offer 120 minutes, 180 minutes and 240 minutes so this gives a perfect amount of time to appreciate and enjoy the differences between these fantastic machines!
NO EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY, you can join us on an experience as a complete novice and leave feeling like you’ve transported over 150 virtual passengers safely.

About the B737 NG Aircraft
The Boeing 737 NG twin-engine airliner is the best selling jetliner of all time. The 737 aircraft has carried the equivalent of the world’s population … approximately seven billion passengers!
When choosing which simulator you would like to experience you may want to keep in mind that the B737 NG has a smaller cockpit than the A320. This aircraft uses a large control yolk whereas the A320 uses a sidestick to steer the aircraft.
About the Airbus A320 Aircraft
A320, manufactured by Airbus Industrie in Europe, is a single aisle dual engine short-medium range passenger aircraft.
When choosing which simulator you would like to experience you may want to keep in mind that the A320 has a larger cockpit in both length and width. The way it is operated is also quite different. Rather than using a large control yolk you will be using a sidestick which is located on the outer side of each pilot.
It is the first commercial aircraft type that adopts fly-by-wire digital flight control system, and also the first civil aviation passenger aircraft that applies Relaxed Static Stability design.
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 License 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 it’s 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.
Quadrant Systems have given special permission to use this £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 pieces 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 practice 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 month’s 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!
By all means though, please do contact should you want to know anything in particular. We would be happy to help and hope to see you at the simulator soon!
