Consistently voted one of the top things to do in Orange County, Flightdeck...

Consistently voted one of the top things to do in Orange County, Flightdeck is a flight simulation attraction providing civilians the opportunity to pilot fighter jets in actual cockpit simulators and a Boeing 737 flight simulator. Experience the challenge of aerial maneuvers at 500 knots, aircraft take-offs and landings and the excitement of air-to-air combat. Up to ten people can fly at the same time, each in their own authentic F-16 flight simulator! In the "Officer's Club", guests can view and listen to all of the action on large LCD monitors.

Flightdeck also offers "Group Events at the Speed of Sound!", with event space for groups of 8 to 80, this is a unique venue where the spirit of Top Gun inspires the adventurer within with a variety of aviation themed experiences for corporate groups, team building (serious or fun), incentive trips, parties, customers events, sales events, seminars, product launches, off-site meetings etc.

Son has been here before. 1st timers you do Fox 1, then you can do the Fox 2 mission. My son LOVES this attraction. You sit in an actual "cockpit" and you can wear a flight suit if you desire. You have a briefing and then you participate in a dogfight with other pilots. You finish up by trying to... More

This event for me was a Christmas gift from my parents. They knew that I love aviation and want to be an aviator. My heart and mind opened up to my full love on aviation. The activities I did at Flightdeck Flight Simulation Center were the the fighter jet Fox 1 package and the Boeing 737-800 ninety minutes package. The... More

My husband and I came to try this out. I had a lot of fun. He was a bit more frustrated, but he is used to doing well at athletic events and struggles with technology. I just had fun and intentionally crashed when I needed to reboot or get more ammunition. It was fun to wear the suit and be... More

My son and I signed up for the F-16 "Fox One" and 737 flight experience. The F-16 briefing was very through and prepared you well for the flight. The flight itself was a blast! The "controller" knew all the "lingo" and kept things moving along while helping you keep track of the action. My son was interested in the procedural... More

I visited this attraction last week after wanting to visit for over 2 years. The place is a must for any aviation geek. While I was there, I was able to fly both the F-16 and 738 simulators, and both were entertaining and informative. The F-16 sim is very accessible to novice pilots. The staff does a great job of...

Tries as much as possible to reflect the whole experience from briefing to debrief including assistance with getting into the cockpit with a perspecs canopy including flight suit. Best experienced with six friends to shoot them out of the sky.

Flew the Fox1 program. You are the pilot with takeoff and landings, and realistic dog fights. Very friendly and competent staff to help you get everything out of the experience.

Really had a great time and the people are helpful and friendly, even cheerful because everybody is there just having fun. Didn't know we would be giving a training briefing ahead of time. Obviously, this helped as there isn't much time when your flying to learn a few basics. I flew the B 737 making a successful take off from... More

Went back for a 2nd visit and did the Fox 2 mission, well worth it as expected, friendly staff are still there, wifi available for non flying family members to help them be entertained if they don't want to watch the action on the screens the entire time. Well worth a visit
