We recommend minimum teenage  - this is not a gaming experience, so pilots need to be able to follow instructions to learn to fly a responsive flight simulator. Anyone under the age of sixteen must be accompanied by an adult.

No. Our Instructors will give you all the assistance you need.

Spectators?
Family and friends are welcome to come and watch. 

Cameras?
You are welcome to take photos and/or video at anytime during the flight.

Access?
The simulator is in a Crew Hut that is on the ground floor with wheelchair access. However, to fly, the pilot needs to be able to climb into the cockpit, sit unaided and be able to operate the controls. With a lower body circumference of over 120cm/48inch you will find this difficult.  

Please call to discuss any individual requirements where we can better advise and try to help.
