If you are looking for a gift idea for Father’s Day then British Airways might be able to help.
The airline is offering a 20 per cent discount off gift vouchers for Father’s Day as long as they are booked by the 30th June 2014.
Their full- motion flight simulators are the same ones used to train their professional pilots and they really do offer the full flight experience. With the latest computer technology and graphics they give any would-be pilot the opportunity to land or take-off from the 180 worldwide airports served by the British Airways aircraft fleet.
All sessions are accompanied by an instructor and no previous flying experience is necessary. It certainly would make the perfect gift to any fathers who are also budding pilots!
Flights in a Boeing 737 simulator are available at just £319, reduced from £399 or in a simulated 747 jumbo jet or Boeing 777 for £359, reduced from £449 per hour long session.
Gift vouchers are available for purchase at www.ebaft.com, by calling +44 (0) 20 8562 3044 or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Bookings must be made by 30th June, 2014 using the promotional code DAD14 to receive the 20 per cent discount. Flight simulator experiences can be made for available dates during the 12 months to the end of June 2015.
Each flight experience starts with a full technical briefing from a pilot followed by an hour’s flying time in which you can land and take off from multiple airports as well as cruising through blue skies.
The full-flight simulators are located at British Airways’ Flight Training centre near Heathrow.
We recently had a trip in a Thai Airways flight simulator and it was an amazing experience. If you get the chance do take it!
If you take a flight do tell us here at PlaneTalking how you got on!
