Yorkshire Flight Simulator wants you to enjoy and get the most out of flying with us.

When you arrive you will be welcomed into our waiting room where you can relax with a complimentary tea or coffee* while your flight instructor will run through everything you need to know for your flight.

If you are bringing spectators (no more than 6 please) they can enter the rooms where the simulators are situated and take photographs/view your flight, alternatively they can relax in the waiting area.

When you enter the F16 you will be sat in a mock ejector seat which then slides into the cockpit, this is a single seat aircraft but your guests can see from behind the seat. There are several missions available including air combat, air to air refuelling and aircraft carrier landings. Please notify your instructor if you wish to do any specific mission.

For the Cessna 172 Experience, it’s a full size fuselage with a fully functioning cockpit, We highly recommend completing your experience in the skies above New York due to the close proximity of multiple airports and spectacular views. As a default the simulator will be set to New York however , We have global airports different weather & times of year along with day & night flying, If you have anything specific in mind please notify your instructor!

Free parking for up to three guest’s vehicles is available on site.
