Overview

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.

Our family (teenage kids) went to do this and all flew together at the same time (they have 8 F-16 sims). After an excellent pre-flight briefing going over the controls, how to fly, how to fire the guns/missiles, chaf/flare, etc, we got suited in flight...More

I thoroughly enjoyed the F-16 flight simulation at Flightdeck! The personnel were helpful and informative. The briefing beforehand was intense and a bit overwhelming, but once we got into the simulators they were continually giving instruction and not leaving us hanging. An amazing experience, got...More

I can’t say anything but great things about this place! If you love flight but don’t have the time and resources to get a pilots license...try Flight Deck! Fly a F-16CM or 737-800!! Incredible and will go back again!

I'm not sure. The best thing to do is to call the FlightDeck folks and ask them. They are very helpful and friendly.

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)
