Want to fly a commercial liner without the risk of killing 200 passengers? Flight Experience at Sydney Darling Harbour uses a jet simulator to put you in the hot seat and requires no experience.
The simulator is realistic with the veritable cockpit of a Boeing-737 and a 180° panoramic view. To see photos and videos illustrating the sheer fun of this experience click here.
A personal instructor will help you learn the basic controls and guide you through the trip. Both aviators looking for some experience as well as those who've fantasized piloting a jet can use the simulator. It is also the perfect gift for a flight enthusiast!
There are a myriad of possibilities for you to choose from including 20 000 airports. You are debriefed on the application of different controls and displays before practicing take-off and landing. Then you can progress to 'City to City' flights such as from London to Paris or Sydney to Canberra. For a greater challenge you can swing your jet through the Himalayan Peaks or try land during a fiery storm.
It is located conveniently at the Harbourside Shopping Centre making it the perfect outing. The costs range from $175 for 30 minutes to $375 for 90 minutes. If you want to book flights or read more information click here.
