It was great to know you had such a good time with us. You were so engrossed that you must have forgot it was a Boeing you were flying not an Airbus. That's a swear word here! Many thanks Captain Mark.

Having flown in various small aircraft since a young man I was interested to "take the controls" of an airliner, something out of reach for nearly all pilots, let alone the public. I found myself being briefed by the pilot instructor Mark who gave succinct...More

I had an hours worth of flight simulator experience with Captain Lowen. It was a great experience and I enjoyed it very much! I certainly would recommend it. There is plenty of parking outside as well and near a nice countryside.
