Make a Bucket List and Virgin Experience bring one for the aspiring pilots, a Boeing 737 flight simulator. Flying your own plane has never been easier and with this flight you needn’t leave the ground. This simulation in London’s Shepherds Bush, allows you to experience the thrill of controlling your own aircraft and becoming the Captain of a Boeing 737.
During your 30 minute session, you will be guided by a qualified airline pilot who will guide you in creating the perfect take off, teach you how to handle the aircraft in flight and help you achieve that perfect landing. Your instructor may be a holder of a private pilot license, or perhaps a commercial pilot taking a well deserved break from the real world of airline transport. They will explain all procedures throughout and you should gain a good understanding of how the jets are controlled. You can opt to fly from a choice of more than 24,000 airports, departing and arriving wherever you choose, how about a flight from Munich to Innsbruck for an approach into the Tyrol Mountains? Alternatively you could fly into the unforgettable airport of St. Maarten in the Caribbean islands or try the ultimate approach into Hong Kong’s Kai Tak Airport… enjoy at the amazing price of £99.00!
