Unique gift idea - Get a buzz with some serious flying in our full motion flight simulator.
One hour thrilling full motion flight simulator experience in a Cessna 172 or a Piper Seminole twin engine aircraft at Amber Aviation, Essendon.
With the advice and training of an experienced flight instructor and professional pilot you will be taught how to take off, handle the aircraft whilst in the air and how to make a smooth landing. This is definitely one for all those pilots aspiring out there!
After being welcomed by your instructor you will be thoroughly briefed about the basics of handling a plane whilst in the air and on the ground. You will also be given all the information you need to know regarding the RedBird FMX – full motion flight simulator.
You can choose one of the options for your flight simulator challenge:
1. Place to place-captain an aircraft on a short haul cross-country sector following real world procedures! After selecting a city pair from our menu you'll plan your flight, start up and get the flight underway!
2. Scenic flight: Pick a city and fly over to see its famous landmarks and monuments. Fly above the Eiffel Tower in Paris or a city of choice in Australia and or any location. The choice is yours.
3. Take-offs and landings - Here's your opportunity to practice the most challenging elements of flight. Squeeze in as many take-offs and landings as you can, or fly a real-world route in real time- the choice is yours.Think you have everything under control? Be on the lookout for reducing visibility, a gusting crosswind or perhaps the dreaded engine failure on take-off! Challenging approaches - pick from our assortment of challenging approaches.
4. You're the captain and where you fly is up to you and it can be as thrilling and challenging as you want. Would you like to fly a challenging approach into Queenstown in a snowstorm? After that, perhaps a scenic descent into a Great Barrier Reef sunset. There's a whole world of options, and the choice is yours.
It's the time to climb into the simulator and put your new knowledge to the test, you advance the throttles and your aircraft hurtles down the runway and takes off.
You’re airborne, you can start to relax and appreciate the stunningly realistic scenery. You don’t have too much time for sightseeing; you need to manage your air speed, maintain your altitude and watch your heading. You need to be aware of any other traffic in the area, and monitor a dazzling array of screens and indicators.
Now for the greatest challenge!!
It’s up to you to manoeuvre your aircraft to set up for the landing.
Lower the undercarriage & align with the runway on your perfect approach.
The runway rushes up to meet you and you must judge a gentle ‘flare’ to slow your rate of descent and smoothly touch down on the centerline.
You will also have a photo opportunity at the end of your flight session.
