5 Reasons to Choose VFE for your Sim Experience or Training Session.
We know you have a choice when it comes to deciding where to book your flight simulator experience or training session, so here are a few reasons why we think you should choose VFE.
1) Our simulators.
We operate two of the most advanced fixed base simulators in the world.
Our Boeing 737 was constructed using components from the worlds foremost manufacturer of professional grade flight sim hardware. Our Piper PA34 Seneca is truly a unique simulator, having been custom built from a real aircraft. It is the only one of its' kind in the world.
We believe that visual immersion is key to fooling the mind into believing you are flying a real aircraft. At VFE we have put considerable thought and effort into custom designing our visual systems to rival the very best in the world.
We operate a fully immersive 240 degree visual system in our 737 which covers all cockpit windows and extends in front of, to the side and even behind both pilots. Passengers in our 737 also benefit from side windows giving them the same view they would experience from the cabin of a real 737. Both pilots and passengers also experience immersive audio and motion cues, hearing and feeling the aircraft as it accelerates down the runway and encounters turbulence, the landing roll and the taxy back to the gate.
Our Seneca sim goes even further, with a custom built 300 degree visual system which means the pilots can literally look over their shoulders and still see the view they would experience in a real aircraft. This makes true VFR flying and navigation a reality, something rarely possible from a simulator.
2) We will ensure you have an amazing time.
We never forget that the main objective for your visit is for you to have a great time. Nothing pleases us more than seeing our guests return to their cars at the end of their experience with huge smiles on their faces. Everything we do is aimed towards ensuring that your visit to us is an experience you will never forget, but don't just take our word for it, take a look at what our customers are saying.
3) We are friendly and supportive.
We are situated on a private, gated estate in rural North Warwickshire, just off the M69 between Coventry and Leicester.
When you book a flight with us you will have the undivided attention of your instructor for the duration of your flight. If you have a specific flight request please let us know 24 hours before your session and we will do our best to prepare that for you.
Our sessions are tailored to your experience level and expectations. We know that this is your experience and we go the extra mile to make it special.
4) Our pricing is very competitive and transparent.
We think our pricing represents the very best value in the UK today for a simulator experience of this quality. Our options are straightforward and transparent. Time booked is your time spent flying our sims, briefing time is provided on top of this, and is free.
5) For professional pilots, we offer a private, high quality, low cost training facility.
For commercial pilots we offer a private and supportive training environment. We have specific expertise in the field of sim assessment preparation sessions and have a proven track record of helping newly qualified ATPLs secure that first place in the airlines as well as established pilots looking to switch airline or type. We also offer MCC and JOC preparation courses designed to give you a head start in your training.
If you are coming up to the start of your CPL training, our PA34 sim can give you a massive head start and valuable prep time at a fraction of the cost of hiring the real aircraft. Use it to familiarise yourself with the G1000, as an introduction to flying a complex twin, or to practice IFR procedures. A few hours spent in our PA34 could save you thousands in reduced flight time in the real thing.
