Sim 737 is a very realistic scale replica of a Boeing 737-800 cockpit. At Sim 737 the instructor, Rob, is very friendly and helpful. he knows what he is doing and explains things clearly. I have been back several times as I want to become a commercial pilot, and find the sessions useful and great fun. It is great value for money and great fun whether you want to be a pilot or not.

If you've ever wondered what flying a real airliner is like, now is your chance. You climb into the pilot's seat of a full sized Boeing 737-800 simulator (as flown by Virgin Australia and Qantas) and it is totally immersive. Flick switches like the real things, taxi out and take off and climb to our cruise altitude, make radio calls and experience everything the real flight crews do every day, and all without leaving the ground! The staff are knowledgeable and helpful and what you to get the most from your experience. Highly recommended.

Thanks for the great review Mark. It was an absolute pleasure having you guys visit the simulator and put it through its paces in such detail - the weather radar pic is a doozy!

Looking forward to catching up again next year, or when you are next in beautiful Hobart :)

For anyone interested in aviation, this facility will provide you with a Boeing 737 flight deck experience. What is it like to sit in a pilot's seat? What happens up front.

Under guidance you can be taken through a flight from takeoff to landing. You look out the windows and the scenery changes right up to the point of taxying to the terminal building.

I am a rusty old private pilot and this has been an unrealised dream. I loved every minute and learnt so much about flying a heavy aircraft. Some of simulation experiences can be done on a home computer but it is a big step to sitting in a cockpit and using the real switches and controls.

I would recommend this experience to anyone that likes flying. Under instruction you don't need to have flown before.
