Well what a great experience. My simulator flight was 60 mins and took in a flight from Gatwick to Jersey. Pilot - Nick, kept me fully involved in the flight preparation - inputting information etc, assisting in the take off and when not in autopilot, during the flight itself and finally assisting in a safe landing at our destination. Nick was very patient and professional and like Jane on Reception, I was made to feel very welcome. Would thoroughly recommend

This was my second visit to VFE and this time I had a 90 minute session which included two flights. First flight was from Gatwick to Jersey including programming the FMC and following the checklists. The second flight was from the new Hong Kong airport Chep Lap Kok to the old airport Kai Tak. This was a visual circuit. Lining up on the checkerboard and landing using the curved approach. The first landing was a touch and go followed by a full stop landing. I would recommend this experience to anyone as it is as close you can get to flying without a license. The staff were extremely welcoming and the facilities were very good.
