Win the experience of a lifetime

Flight Experince London is giving one lucky reader the chance to have a session in a Boeing 737-800 flight simulator

If you have ever wondered what was going on in the cockpit of a modern jet as you relax at the back with a gin and tonic then you now have the chance to find out for yourself. Flight Experience London is offering one lucky reader a flight experience where you will simulate the take-off and landing of a Boeing 737-800.

The simulator is a replica of a full size Boeing 737-800 cockpit made with genuine parts and it has been officially approved by Boeing. One of the highly enthusiast instructors will describe in plain language the levers, switches and displays that control the aircraft.

You will learn about the throttle which controls engine speed, the flaps which give extra lift during take off and landing, ascending and turning with the yoke, how to raise and lower the landing gear, the rudder pedals for steering under power on the ground and the trim which assists stable flight and maintains the aircraft’s centre of gravity.

The very realistic, high definition terrain that you see through the cockpit windows will give you a real sense of being airborne. This is a highly exciting and thoroughly absorbing experience that reveals the mysteries of flying a modern jet.

A simulator session would make an ideal gift for a birthday or Christmas. For more information about Flight Experience London and to see the full range of experiences they offer go to
