Consistently voted one of the top things to do in Orange County, Flightdeck is a flight simulation attraction providing civilians the opportunity to pilot fighter jets in actual cockpit simulators and a Boeing 737 flight simulator. Experience the challenge of aerial maneuvers at 500 knots, aircraft take-offs and landings and the excitement of air-to-air combat. Up to ten people can fly at the same time, each in their own authentic F-16 flight simulator! In the "Officer's Club", guests can view and listen to all of the action on large LCD monitors. Flightdeck also offers "Group Events at the Speed of Sound!", with event space for groups of 8 to 80, this is a unique venue where the spirit of Top Gun inspires the adventurer within with a variety of aviation themed experiences for corporate groups, team building (serious or fun), incentive trips, parties, customers events, sales events, seminars, product launches, off-site meetings etc.

Hi Linda - Thank you for your feedback. Our simulators are modeled after the US Air Force and US Navy simulators used to train pilots which do not move. The motion for fighter jets would need to be very extreme and for many people, very...More

There is no weight restriction but there is a size restriction. For example someone who is 6 foot 6 inches and weighs 280lbs would fit but not someone who is 5 foot 10 inches and 280lbs. Hope this helps.

You can all go on a mission if everyone is at least 11 years old. The total would be $295 ($59 x 5)
