It’s not just a case of turn the plan on and go … you will learn about the safety aspects involved, how to speak to your virtual cabin crew and how to steer the aircraft to your designated runway.

Start-up checks and taxi are part of every single flight in the B737 or A320 commerical jet airliners.

If you want to know what a commercial pilot does from the moment they walk onto the aircraft, the start-up checks and taxi bolt-on will offer you the most realistic experience.

You will learn how to bring the aircraft from “dark and cold” into life! Parked in front of the gate (at an airport of your choice) you will be shown how to accurately prepare for the flight.

Turning on the various systems required for full operational status and then you’ll be taken through all of the checks necessary in order to be able to be confident the aircraft is safe and ready for flight.

You will go through the procedures and checks that real-world pilots perform every time they fly.

After being pushed back from the gate, you will start the engines and ready yourself to get to the runway.

Final checks before acceleration and lift off!

Being a 30 minute add on … it will also give a chance to land, taxi to the gate designated by “Air Traffic Control” and then shut down the aircrafts systems while your virtual passengers disembark!

If you want to really learn what a pilot does … there’s more to it than the excitement of flight. Add the start-up checks and taxi bolt-on to your experience for complete immersion!

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.
