I went on this as a birthday present and it was great, it felt so much like flying a plane. It was very detailed and I learned how to fly a plane (a bit!). I would really recommend it!

Second visit for my thirteen year old grandson. He loves it. The instructor was Stuart thus time, he was fantastic with Sam, teaching him like an adult, and letting him fly into some tricky airports. Thoroughly recommend if you love flying.
