Huge savings on our 60 minute experience.  You do not need to have flown an aircraft or simulator to have a go at this.  You will receive a full briefing and then be accompanied by a qualified 737 pilot to take you through the flight.  We recommend the one hour flights as this gives you plenty of time to try different things.  Fly to/from anywhere in the world.

The video above is an approach and landing at Doncaster Sheffield Airport.  The graphics are stunning and the team are constantly working to make this one of the most realistic simulators around.  Feedback from 737 pilots is that the controls are incredibly close to the real thing.  But don’t take our word for it, try for yourself.  See below the link to book your experience, speak us on 0845 456 6515 or email enquiries@avex.org.uk

Visit to Coventry Air Museum and Aeropark

3rd October 2017

Our trip to Coventry for a VIP visit was fantastic.  Our group was given a special VIP tour of the museum and access to cockpits and background information about all the aircraft on display.  As a very special treat, we were allowed access to the former Air Atlantique Classic Flight hangars to view the superb aircraft within.

Education Highlight

We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to experience flight.  This is especially important for children so that they might understand the thrill of the aviation environment.  The United Kingdom is currently second in the world for it’s aviation industry but we need to educate and encourage children to pursue a career in this exciting field in order to, at least, maintain that position.  

We were proud to support the 12th Annual Young Aviators event, held at Sywell airfield.

This fantastic day hosted around 100 youngsters between the ages of 7 and 11 and offered them a range of activities designed to inspire and educate them about all things aviation.  What is most amazing about this day is the fact that ALL children were taken for a flight and so had the chance to experience the thrill and excitement of the experience.  Congratulations to Andre for his hard work making this happen and we look forward to supporting this event next year.

“Thank you to Toni Hunter, Taff Stone and Andrew Hellen of The Aviation Experience Company Ltd for coming along to the 12th Annual Young Aviators event at Sywell Aerodrome on Saturday 16th September 2017, where they helped many youngsters, their friends and family, to be inspired, educated, challenged and most of all have fun, with their excellent flight simulator. I look forward to working with Toni and her team again soon. Thank You – Andre Faehndrich, Sywell Aerodrome Young Aviators organiser, next event is Sat 15/09/18.”

This video epitomises how activities aimed at children can have such a positive impact on them and only helps to raise the profile of this industry.
