Absolutely unreal experience my son loved it.
So professional relaxed and friendly he'll definitely want this again..money best spend!
Well what an experience.
I spent 90 minutes with UPiLOT and flew from Dublin. Took off in the old Hong Kong airport and landed on the new Hong Kong airport and also landed on London city airport. I have no experience but the instructor was brilliant and very encouraging. I would highly recommend UPiLOT to anyone even if you don't have a big interest in aviation. The 90 minutes I had passed by too quickly.
5 stars definitely.
Highly recommend this for anyone with an interest in a career in the industry or just with a healthy curiosity of airplanes and flying in general.
Purchased for my wife who has a genuine fear of flying and she loved every second of this.
Can't wait to see how she gets on when we go on holiday.
My first time in cockpit, first time to have the yoke in hands, I definitely recommend. Hassle free from booking to flight simulator experience. Instructor very friendly, I would have no fear to fly with u as captain. Simulator very real. No words for this experience. For sure I’ll be back. Thanks
Brilliant time with my daughter Kate so real and the staff are so nice and clear and helpful thank you
Well worth it! 😊
