Flight Experience™ operate PS3.5 Series Simulators, manufactured by the parent company, Pacific Simulators 2010 Ltd, in Christchurch New Zealand. These simulators are high fidelity, full replicas of the Boeing 737-800, the best-selling commercial jet in history.
Some of their newest features include a revolutionary Visual System including High Definition projection onto a 180 degree wrap-around curved screen. Clients can choose to fly into any airport in the world capable of 737 operations. In fact, there are over 24,000 airports in the data base.
Flight Experience™ Simulators are approved by CASA (Civil Aviation Safety Authority) in Australia for Pilot Training. Our devices are approved as Category B Synthetic Trainers in accordance with the Operational Standards and Requirements – Approved Synthetic Trainers (FSD-2).
Under this approval, pilots holding Instrument ratings can log instrument flight time and use these hours for recency. The approval also permits approved Aviation Training Organisations (AOC holders) to use our devices for instrument training and renewals. We are the only business of our type to receive approval for Pilot Training by an Aviation Regulatory Authority.
