Flight Experiences in the 737 Simulator

It is a sound and vision simulator only and you will not experience motion but you will feel as if you are moving due to the quality of the images. We have numerous airports which you can fly into, including Queenstown in NZ, Samos in Greece, Innsbruck in Austria, Hong Kong, Gibraltar, Las Vegas and Dubai.  (You can also try a few things that would normally get you arrested, like flying under the Harbour Bridge!)

Testimonials for GoFly Aviation

My coastal flights south of Caloundra were breathtakingly beautiful. My instructor, Brendan, a holder of a CPL, allowed me as much or as little control as was safe. The video footage I received post-flight was of high quality and looked extremely impressive. I booked two flights with the flying school and the entire team was proficient, expert and friendly. The Sling aircraft the flying school use is ‘aviation eye candy’: just stunning! I couldn’t recommend the experience more highly. 

Andrew

Had an awesome time. Chris the instructor made me feel at ease from the start. Absolutely loved the experience and would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Kev

My wife got this for me as an anniversary gift and it was great! The whole experience was great and such value for money. Highly recommend!
Daniel

Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Would do it again, and Sean, the instructor, was great. A++. 

Mal

What an absolutely incredible experience! Really friendly team, very simple process. After a little briefing we took to the sky and it was awesome! Brendan was a great instructor, and a lot of fun! The views were incredible and an experience I’d love to do again!

Dan

Such a great experience! Instructor was very knowledgeable and explained things clearly. Had a lot more control of the aircraft than expected and didn’t feel rushed at all.

Erryn

Nathan the pilot was excellent from the briefing to the landing. We flew over Caloundra to Moreton Island and he gave me control for majority of the flight. The view over the island and the experience of flying a small aircraft was amazing. Would recommend this experience to everyone.

Joey

We had two Ultimate Wingman flights. Our pilots Nathan and his brother were excellent. What good pilots as well as being friendly and helpful. Michelle wants to get her license after her experience. Not bad for a RAN girl. 

Nick

The pilot was fantastic and provided information and guidance on flying a plane. Being able to control the plane for a substantial amount of the flight and taking in the amazing views was an absolute highlight! Thoroughly recommend!
