The Fly A Jet flight simulator is CAA approved as a pilot training simulator and the cockpit layout is an almost exact duplicate of a real working Jet Airliner. But you don’t need any previous experience to operate this amazing piece of technology as we can adapt the package to suit all levels and there will be a qualified pilot to assist you!

The Jet Transition Course is a suitable course for future airline pilots. I find it very productive in terms of knowledge and training. Now I feel better prepare to face an airliner full motion simulator. What I would like to highlight is the quality of instruction Fly a Jet has provided me during the course. Instructors were fully focused on my progress. Theoretical Introduction for each session, briefings, worthy sessions at simulator and debriefings are examples which make me feel happy about the course. I only have words of gratitude to you. Please, keep working in this way.
Matías Fabris, AucklandWe had the loveliest time, who would have thought five women would have enjoyed it so much, and 84 year old grandpa too. You were truly gracious and flexible, everyone loved the official photos (with the hat), the fancy sitting area, music, food and drink and it was a great end of year catch up for everyone in the family after a busy year of university and work. Dad was pleased to check the Pentagon, next time he wants to go to New York and World Trade Centre's Building Seven. Archie got to look at Pirongia and Motutapere and the landscapes near his home, Amy went to Paris (as you said, "of course!"), right under the Eiffel Tower, Georgie flew to visit her fella's home in Queenstown, I flew past my beloved Waiheke and under the Bridge (sorry about the misadventure taxiing inside the terminal), Hannah buzzed Buckingham Palace and waved to the Queen, Alexandria got to look in the windows of the Sky-Tower, and practiced her super-cautious driving. Turning on the snow and turning off the engines were extra adventures. You made us feel like we were all competent pilots and nothing was a problem, it couldn't have been a more relaxed or enjoyable couple of hours - sitting near the screen chatting, or inside the cockpit cheering on our pilot. Great for such a diverse group, worth every cent, we will spread the word.
Penny and Family,"A great flight experience..."
John Key, Prime MinisterI wanted to thank you for helping us make Nikki's birthday a very special event. Our goal of exposing friends and family to what it's like to be an airline pilot - as well as celebrating a milestone birthday! - was fully realized at FlyAJet. We cannot thank you enough for all your help in the planning and preparation; from helping with decorations to creating a light and fun competition with prizes, our guests left the party with an experience they will never forget! Your professional instructors did a great job getting all twenty-six guests through the simulator efficiently and more importantly making the experience fun and enjoyable. We received many comments on the incredibly tasty food as well, particularly the salmon toppers that seemed to have evaporated from the tray before they were served! Many thanks to the catering for offering a wide variety of good quality bites for everyone. A fantastic, fun and unique celebration for us all at FlyAJet! We couldn't have done it without you!
