How do I buy a flight experience?
You can buy a flight experience online, in person at our locations or by calling our sales line, and pay by debit or credit card. When you buy online you can choose to use PayPal credit too. Flight experience vouchers are dispatched to you the same day.
Does it have motion?
Our simulators are so called fixed based trainers. They do not move, However due to the visual system most customers believe they are moving and even hold on when flying turns. Its a cost effective alternative to moving simulators which cost up to 5 times more per hour.
How closely does the simulator resemble the real thing?
Our simulators are replicas of real cockpits. They are in fact so real that pilots regulary come to us and use our simulators for their own training requirements.
Do gift certificates expire?
Yes. Your gift certificates are valid for six months from the date of purchase.
What is the minimum age?
We invite young pilots from the age of 6 for our Flight Experiences.
Can I bring a friend?
All iPILOT Simulators are designed for you to bring a friend to watch you during the flight. We provide Airline style seats for your guests. You can also share your flying time with your friends. However we limit this to maximum 2 people sharing the experience.
How extensive is the briefing?
We try to keep the briefing short but depending on your interest this can be extended to fit your requirements and your experience.
What should I bring with me?
Because our flight simulators are so realistic, we are required by the security services to confirm the identity, and keep records of, everyone that comes for a session at the controls. Please bring a piece of photo ID, either your passport or driving license, when you come for your flight experience.
Do I need any flying experience?
Most of our clients never flown a aircraft before and we will show you and guide you though the procedures real pilots go though in their flying.
Can I fly the Simulator myself?
Of course. Your pilot Instructor will guide you through the process and you will be the Pilot flying during the experience.
