"The experience itself is crazy real..."

Our New Zealand designed and built Flight Simulators were created to give you the nearest experience to flying possible, without leaving the ground. 

You’ll experience the thrill of the sound, speed and power of a Fighter Jet or WW2 Warbird, made even more exciting with the latest Virtual Reality technology to really immerse your senses.

This is no game, it's as real as it gets.

 

The Multi-Aircraft Flight Simulators

 

Have a blast shooting down your mates or practicing formation flying in these networked flight simulators.  During your session you can choose from multiple aircraft, from classic war-birds to modern day jets.

 

The replica ejection seats are kitted out with some clever tech that allows you to feel every vibration and bump, and you'll be strapped in with a genuine fighter jet harness.  And the stick and throttle look, feel and respond like the real thing.  

The F-18 Motion Flight Simulator

 

This takes the simulation to a "crazy real" level of reality you'll experience no where else in New Zealand and maybe the world.  The replica F-18 cockpit and ejection seat, combined with six axis of motion and virtual reality will really thrill your senses. 

Have a go at landing on a carrier deck, air to air combat, or just cruising around the mountains and along the coast.  And if a crash is imminent, ride it in like a man (or woman), and feel the sensation of the ground rushing to meet you and the moment of impact. It's the only place you can crash a plane and walk away without a scratch!
