Why is FSM the best Simulator Experience in the UK?
FSM is different from other flight experience companies because we use real flight simulators, not mock ups like most on offer – the ‘Toys’ as we call them. We have a real Airbus A320, Boeing 737 and 747 (the JUMBO jet) all located in the same hanger. The A320 and B737 have pitch motion while the Boeing 747 is static with a full wrap around screen. We are the largest Flight Simulator Experience Centre in the Europe in one location.
What is the difference with our A320 Simulator, B737 Simulator and 747 Simulator sessions?
The Boeing 737 and Airbus A320 both have pitch motion to enhance the flight experience. The 747 does not actually move but the wrap around screen is very effective and fools your brain into thinking it is moving. The 737 can take 2 observer guests and the 320 and 747 can take 3 each (4 at a squeeze). The 737 and 747 both started life as airline training simulators whereas the A320 was actually an aircraft which was chopped off at the nose and back engineered into a simulator.
Why choose FSM for a flight simulator gift experience?

Why are you a bit more expensive than some other offers I have seen?
Because we are using MOTION simulators which the cheaper locations don’t. The lowest price motion simulator in the country after us is over £400 / hour.

Why choose FSM for airline Flight Simulator Preparation?
We have done hundreds of successful simulator assessment preps for candidates for most European and Asian carriers. We know how to get the best out of you so that you are in form on the day. We get a lot of feedback from previous candidates so again we have a pretty good idea what you will challenged with on the day. All our instructors are experienced airline captains, some of whom are still current and are flying these aircraft regularly.
Does FSM do MCC and JOC courses?
We are currently offering JOC and Airline Orientation courses in the New Year (2019). We are in the process of gaining CAA certification for the 320 so we hope to be able to offer the MCC later in 2019. Our aim is t provide MCC on the 320 and JOC on the 737 so that you can experience both major types during the course.
Don’t sell yourself short and train on non-professional simulators. This can be extremely detrimental to your chances of getting the job you have dreamed of.
