Fly with a pilot instructor in an FAA approved full-motion flight simulator, the kind typically seen only in flight schools and training academies used in real world flight training. The cockpit is fully functional and the sensations of flight are amazing. This is the most realistic experience possible short of flying a real airplane!

Try Flying!

This is a 10-minute flight that gets you into the fun and challenge of aviation. Put your feet into the rudder pedals, take the controls and get ready to fly! Accelerate down the runway at San Carlos Airport and lift off in your Cessna 172. Climb out over the Bay, maneuver in the traffic pattern and then land at San Francisco International Airport.

The FMX flight simulator’s fully functional cockpit features the latest in “glass cockpit” avionics technology, the Garmin G1000, including a Primary Flight Display (PFD) and Multi-Function Display (MFD) with integrated autopilot.
