"The pilot was nothing short of inspirational. Her enthusiasm for her job and passion for flying, made this a great experience for the other family members watching too. Two of our teenage girls now want to try flying as a career"

Anne Marie McStay



The jet flight simulator was an incredible experience from beginning to end. For our 11 year old son and his best friend it offered him the chance to land and take off at his favourite English soccer League airport, and enjoy the feeling of an airline cockpit during takeoff and landing. Learning to turn and control the instruments was very interesting.


We found the staff extremely accommodating , friendly and helpful at all times, particularly as our son uses a wheelchair for mobility.


"Lots of fun, Just like the real thing , can never get enough"

John Nicholls (757 Captain Continental Airlines USA)


Considering I did not know what to do as a simulation this exceeded my expectations. I found it a thrilling and realistic experience which went beyond my limited flying ability. I think it ranks among the most memorable and exciting things I can recall. I was pleased with my ability to actually be in control of the aircraft in real time complete with external visuals and execute all operations correctly. Even my nervous flyer wife enjoyed the observer experience. Josh my instructor was excellent in preparing me for the flight and handling the engine and navigational duties. His advice on when to make critical changes to flight parameters was invaluable in making sure my experience was a success. I will be back. I will highly & enthuiastically recommend the experience to my friends."

"I flew your 737-800 Flight Simulator on 2nd May 2008 while on holiday in Australia. It was a fantastic experience and one I will always remember. In fact it has been life changing (for reasons I will detail below). During my one hour session, under the supervision of Kelvie, I practiced turns, ascents and descents and a couple of take off and landing from Kingsford Smith. This was my first ever flight experience and I absolutely loved it. It has really inspired me, and I felt so natural behind the controls.


I have always had a big passion for aviation, and love flying as a passenger. During my holiday to Australia I flew for over 54 hours, including a short hop from Bundaberg to Lady Elliot Island in an Islander Aircraft, (just the weekend prior to flying the simulator at Surfers Paradise), and spoke to the pilot during the trip as I sat in the first officer's seat.


During the last four years I have considered training as an airline pilot, and researched it considerably. The flight simulator experience with you and flying as a passenger to Australia and within, confirmed my thought. On my return home to Europe I applied for Commercial Airline Pilot Training!


Following considerable testing, interviews and a simulator flight (which your simulator prepared me well for) I delighted to share with you that I have been selected to train commercially as an Airline First Officer. I am ecstatic!! I am starting my course in February and hopefully will finish in June 2010, by which stage I hope to be flying a 737 (or an Airbus) for real.


I really wanted to share my story (so far) with you, as I found true inspiration from your Flight Simulator Experience. When I flew your simulator, I signed the visitor's book. It was Monday 2nd May 2008, around midday, so look me up. I want to pass on my best wishes to Kelvie and to all your staff. If I return to Surfers Paradise again (and I plan to) I will call in to say hello."


Best Wishes and Thank You
