Flight Simulators Midlands are delighted to offer you a thrilling experience on board a real B737-800 motion simulator or a Boeing 747-400 Jumbo Jet simulator with simulated motion or an Airbus A320 real aircraft, converted into a simulator. All are fitted with the latest Glass Cockpit Instrumentation (PFD/ND or EFIS)and the latest graphics available. Fly the mountains around Salzburg or the waterways of Hong Kong. These simulators have trained thousands of professional pilots over the years. (They are not replica simulators like many on offer). Now it's your turn to sit where they did and learn the tricks of the trade. We highly recommend a full hours flight time to get the best from your visit. Welcome on board. Captain Chris Rigby (Chief Pilot FSM)

I was given a 30-minute briefing + 30 minutes in the 747 simulator as a present, but was so impressed by what I saw on the Flight Simulators Midlands website that I spent £25 on the briefing material + extra videos (which was a really good investment: I learned a lot from those) and £75 for an extra 30 minutes...

I really enjoyed trying out the A320 for the first time. There was a really helpful video presentation followed by 60 mins in the simulator with my instructor Penny Bowen who was very helpful and patient. The time goes so quickly. I would definitely recommend this. I will probably follow this up with another booking when hopefully I'll be a... More

This is my second visit to FSM, but not my last. Everyone involved are all very welcoming and friendly. My instructor today was Dave with many years flying experience with B.A and BMI who made me feel at ease straight away. This was a present from my family and I would recommend it to anyone(so much better than slippers!).

Got the gift off my partner to go on the simulators here and I chose the boeing 737. I can safely say I loved it. The staff here are really friendly and extremely helpful. We arrived a little early so went upstairs to the little cafe and the service there was great. We went down 45 mins before my flight... More

Flight Simulators Midlands is THE place to go if you have every fancied flying a large commercial plane. The experience is intense yet so exhilarating after 5 minutes you are convinced you are actually flying a plane. My instructor Dave was witty, friendly and very knowledgeable being a commercial pilot, as are all the instructors. I was bought the 747... More

Utterly astonishing I cannot recommend this highly enough. The whole experience from start to finish was wonderful. All the staff were brilliant but in particular the pilot who was in the simulator with me, Andrew, was the perfect host. Friendly, chatty, helpful and interesting. Brilliant guy. The simulator was fantastic. I expected to feel tipping to the left and right,... More

Thanks David. Andrew is our tech wiz kid so you were in good hands. Come and try one of the other simulators. The 737 also has motion and although the 747 is static, your brain tells you that you are moving. We've had people fall out of their seats in there. It's so realistic. Look forward to seeing you again.... More

The whole experience lasted around one hour, before entering into the flight simulator, an online tutorial was given which basically informs you of some of the dynamics of flying. Since we were a party of four, the instructor said "the pilot trainee" from our party could fly the Airbus as there was enough passenger seats for three in the Airbus... More

Very pleased you had such a good time with Andrew. We have professional aircrew coming to fly the Airbus, just to practice their handling skills because they don't get enough manual flying when they are working, so you can be sure how realistic it is. Do come and see us again - Captain Chris Rigby More

Glad he had a good time Sue. You might be stuck with an annual trip to see us with him. Once he's got the bug!! I was 14 when I decided I wanted to become an airline pilot. The careers officer suggested I should be a policeman. No, that's not what I wanted to do. Captain Chris Rigby More
