What people are saying
'The virtual lessons are such a great resource for learning to fly. Almost as good as the real thing. I wish I had it at the start of my pilot training. Great tool for reviewing flying lessons and taking learning to fly a step further.'

'The 360 mode is an astonishing experience. Almost like the real thing. The ability to look around and see what a student in a plane would see, makes the experience feel more real, a marvellous tool for students."
