I finally visited Flightdeck to try the 737 simulator and all I can say is wow! I already had a deep appreciation for commercial aviation, but being able to sit in a replica Boeing 737 was about as close to bringing a dream to reality...More

My family got me a pass for all of us to go and dog fight. We had a blast! There are 8 simulators (pilots) that go head to head using simulators that resemble enormous video game screens. The cockpit looks and feels like a real...More

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.
