We had an awesome afternoon at the air combat flight simulator. Our flight instructor was great to deal with and tailored the experience to what we were looking for. Thanks for everything.

Awesome quality simulation. Good initial briefing, great instructions throughout with level of complexity tailored to the pilots level of experience. Friendly and attentive staff who obviously love what they do. Highly recommended.
