ABOUT VIRTUAL FLIGHT NZ

Experience the sensation of being in control of a real airoplane cockpit

Enjoy the amazing experience and sensation of flying the aircraft of your choice in this flight simulator built from the ground up. What started off as a pre-retirement project soon became a building project spanning more then 3 years. I wanted to built the flight-deck true to size of an Airbus A380, utilising 6 HD LED display monitors for visualisation of the surround view and 2 HD LED monitors for the instrumentation display, a HIFI dolby 5.1 surround sound system as well as integrated true to life autopilot and radio stack. Everybody who knew about my secret project, told me that it was impossible and that I never would be able to finish the project and fly the simulator.

3 years after starting and testing after testing, I was finally ready for my maiden flight and an A380 flight from Toulouse (FR) to Auckland (NZ) was quiet a ceremonial gesture, as it represented the virtual flight of the simulator to it’s new permanent base in Auckland.

Soon it became clear that a lot of people wanted to use my simulator and from the beginning it really went crazy. The simulator was running nearly 24 hours a day as friend (pilots and non-pilots), and their friend, who told their friend etc etc, wanted to have a go. This became so overwhelming that I had to start controlling access to the simulator. Through the companies, TreatMe, Grabone and Groupon, voucher were made available to the public and by restricting the simulator access to Vouchers, the flow of would be simulator users became more controllable.

At the same time I started to program more aircrafts into the simulator system and now you can fly the simulator from a Cessna 172C up to an Airbus A380

By choosing a flight simulator session at Virtual Flight, you can board the aircraft of your choice and choose your favourite destination. Fly from city to city within our simulator, or choose a scenic flying experience over any city in the world. You will be able to practice all the techniques for take-off and landing as it is in an actual commercial jet flight.

You will board the flight deck simulator at our central Auckland venue with easy free parking. Come and enjoy this experience alone, with an instructor and/or with a friend or colleague. During your flight simulator experience, you will be the pilot in charge, however, for inexperienced pilots there will be a flight instructor sitting in the co-pilot seat. This ride will truly amaze you with an unforgettable opportunity to sit in the captain’s seat in this true-to-life flight simulator.
