Fly a 737 at your local shopping mall

I was doing a bit of gadget shopping at Westfield recently and I saw this – a flight simulator experience in a shop! It’s also available at the Bluewater mall in Kent. I didn’t have a go – I already have a licence! – but there’s a nice video that shows you what you get and you can get more detail, prices and booking information from iPILOT. Prices start at £69 for half an hour.

    Oh wow, that looks like fun! I'd love to try that. *plots a visit to Bluewater*

    What a great idea! With the declining numbers of people starting to learn to fly here in the U.S., perhaps a simple simulator in a mall would be a great way to get more people interested in flying.

    I think this would be something the aircraft manufacturers like Cessna, Cirrus, Piper and Beech could get behind along with the AOPA and other organizations.

    SSSSSHHHHHHH!!!!! Dont let out the secret that there's a pilot shortage. The less bodies there are in the flight schools, management will lose leverage against us working class pilots!

    Don't fly airplanes!!!
