Fly a Boeing 737 Airliner... from Sywell! Ideal for Christmas!

11th October 2011

Just arrived at Sywell Aerodrome, Northamptonshire, Virtual Aerospace has taken delivery of an absolutely state of the art, brand new flight simulator which will literally take your breath away!

Have you ever wondered what it might be like to take control of a 70 Ton, 500mph airliner, to control 115,000 pounds of thrust during takeoff, to climb up above the clouds and then return it safely to the ground again at a major airport? There is nothing quite like being in the captain's seat and at Virtual Aerospace anybody can have a go!

737 Simulator

The simulator is certainly no home built machine, this 737 Next Generation simulator has been acquired new from a commercial simulator manufacturer in Switzerland and is the same model used by many European airlines such as Lufthansa and Sky Europe to train their real airline pilots.

The cockpit is 1:1 scale with every button and system working as it does on the real aircraft, add a 120 degree wrap around visual display and real sampled engine sounds and you have an experience as close to flying the real thing as is possible.

An ideal Christmas present for any aviation enthusiast - with prices starting from just £85... Come fly with us! For more information please contact Amanda on 01604 211336, email VA at or visit their website for photos and more.
