The Flight Experience in Singapore

On our recent trip to Singapore, Warren wanted to try the Number one rated experience on Tripadvisor for Singapore - the Flight Experience Singapore. So we booked it before we arrived in Singapore to make sure that we could do it.

Essentially this experience is a training simulator for a Boeing 737. Warren LOVED to fly, so this was a no brainer for us. It is expensive, but worth it. Warren actually did the "flying" and I observed from the jump seat.

The Flight Experience is located at the Singapore Flyer complex. We arrived a few minutes early to settle in.
We chose the 45 minute experience which gave Warren 2 take off and landings. He chose to take off and land from Toronto (our hometown) and from Las Vegas (go figure!).

The co pilot takes you through everything you need to know. I have to say that this was such a blast even from the jump seat. You really feel like you are in the cockpit of a real plane and Warren felt like he was flying a real plane!

As you can see in this video, we got to give the copilot a tour of Toronto, well the downtown core anyway.

We totally recommend this experience. We purchased the video that went along with it as a memento, it wasn't too expensive either. It includes the audio of what Warren and the Copilot said to each other.
