What Can I Expect

Although it's a simulator, this fighter jet experience in Peterborough is the real deal and one of the best in the UK! With a once-operational air force Phantom F4 cockpit being used, you will feel like a proper jet fighter pilot. The high-tech simulator module is mounted on a hydraulic motion platform too, so you will move like a fighter jet and sound like one too!

This top of the range fighter jet simulator experience offers day and night vision (ideal for top secret flights over the UK), as well as plethora of exciting missions. You could be landing and taking off from an aircraft carrier in the sea, or doing touch and go manoeuvres at military airbases, all accompanied by the sounds and motions of flying a real fighter jet plane.

The Mach 2.0 McDonnell Douglas-designed F4 Phantom is one of the most famous fighter jets in the UK and worldwide. This Ferranti Systems simulator has trained many RAF pilots. The cockpit is the genuine article, right down to the Martin Baker ejector seats.

For your fighter jet experience, you'll even have the opportunity to try on genuine RAF fighter jet pilot uniforms, complete with Mae West life preserver and 'bone dome' flying helmet - impressive stuff!

We are offering a range of fighter jet experiences for you to choose from. All sessions start with a sign in and meeting your pilot instructor who knows every nook and cranny of this feisty military jet. But don't forget, you will be the one in the hot seat, so don't be put off by all the lights, knobs and dials. You've got a seriously hefty, yet agile, jet to get airborne and land again!

All fighter jet experiences we offer include a full 25 minute pre-flight briefing and you can choose 20, 40 or 60 minutes of flying time. The ‘Duo' experience for two offers 30 minutes of fighter jet sim action to each of you, to give that extra competitive edge to your performance.

  • Sessions are generally available between 09:00 and 19:00, 10:00-17:00 on Sundays
