What a brilliant experience, so much better than I was expecting. John is very accommodating and my dad really enjoyed his 80th birthday experience. Highly recommended and I’m sure we will be back. Thank you!

My 15 year old son just had his experience, John was brilliant very relaxed and friendly, no time pressure. The rest of the family (4) were able to enjoy the experience in a back seat which we didn’t expect. Highly recommend.

This was a Christmas gift from my kids. It was a 1.5 hour session that was well over two hours! I had a lesson in the Cessna, then flew F-15C, Focke Wulf 190, Spitire brilliant fun! I will be returning!

What an amazing experience I had at Sim-Fly Norfolk on 23 May 2018.
Very kindly, Kevin Bullock and Christina K. Bullock treated me to this phenomenal gift for my birthday. I was genuinely looking forward to the occasion, although if being completely honest, was expecting to struggle, given that I am not at all used to computer games, X-Box, Playstation etc – nothing remotely like a “Geek, Techno-Phobe”. How surprised I was with my time at Sim-Fly Norfolk!
Captain John Hoyte was the perfect companion to fly with; he calmly went through the controls, demonstrating so clearly what each and everything does, and importantly why, before checking that I was ready to fly.
Initially, I chose to fly a Cessna 152, followed by a Supermarine Spitfire, and later a more challenging Red Arrows BAE Systems’ Hawk T1. The journey I took was from Old Buckenham Airfield, flying between two and three thousand feet, heading south towards my home on the Suffolk/Essex border. The weather was calm with beautiful blue skies, offering wonderful visibility as I travelled over houses, schools and landmark areas very familiar to me.
In the course of my time at Sim-Fly Norfolk, I managed to fly over much of Suffolk, Norfolk, Cumbria, right up to Scotland. For my first ever flight, Captain John assured me that I was doing very well and incredibly well for someone who had never flown before; on this basis, I would genuinely say that anybody can do this; yes I did say, anybody can fly!
I really cannot thank Kevin, Christina and Captain John enough for making this experience so special, so much fun and so incredibly self-satisfying. I just need my wings!

I was given a fun session as a Christmas gift and recommend it as it was a great experience. It was made thoroughly enjoyable by John’s enthusiasm and a 1.5 hour session went over 2 hours. I flew 6 different planes in a variety of settings. Make sure you try the Spitfire plus the Red Arrows Hawk.

What a great Christmas present. I wasn’t sure what to expect but we had an excellent morning that was interesting and a lot of fun with a fabulous instructor.
From Shon Meale via the Sim-Fly Facebook page – 30-11-2017
A great experience that gets you interested and excited about the real flying controls. Experience is enhanced by the fact you fly over where you live but also a tutor who knows how to fly and guides you expertly. Would highly recommend you try this.
From Mark Ratcliff via the Sim-Fly Facebook page – 08-09-2017
Great day at Sim Fly yesterday with my father who was able to relive his days in national service flying a Tiger Moth, Cipmunk and Meteor. He loved his day! My sister even got a chance to have a Battle of Britain dog fight, however don’t think she’s inherited dad’s flying skills. Gladly recommend this as an excellent day out.
From Karen McQuoid via the Sim-Fly Facebook page – 12-08-2017
This has to be one of the best gifts I have received. The fun relaxed atmosphere, and excellent tuition from John. The simulator is so realistic, I was able to fly over my house and the area I am from following landmarks that where visible I flew from Norfolk to West Yorkshire to Birmingham landing back in Norfolk. I learnt the controls in a cessna then moved on to fast jet tornado gr4 and hawk. This makes a great gift for anyone who has any interest in flying or for someone who what’s something different. I will be back and highly recommended. Thank you.

Just got back from sim fly Norfolk, absolutely fantastic morning and can highly recommend it… I flew a Tiger Moth over my home in Norwich, and a Red Arrows jet over the island of Rhodes…
From Stuart Vincent-Pryke via the Sim-Fly Facebook page – 03-07-2017
Excellent experience for my Father, bought a gift voucher as a gift and Dad thoroughly enjoyed it. John was the perfect host and trainer as he guided Dad from take off at Norwich airport and flying around Norfolk in various aircraft. Thanks John the whole family enjoyed our time with you and Harvey.
From Stuart Vincent-Pryke via the Sim-Fly Facebook page – 02-04-2017
This is a fantastic experience. Can thoroughly recommend it. John is excellent in taking you through the basics. And great fun as well without the obvious disadvantage that when you f**k it up you don’t die.
From Sam Cremnitz via the Sim-Fly Facebook page – 12-12-2016
This was both a thoroughly enjoyable session and also a really good grounding in the basics of flying. The simulator was excellent as was John’s presentation and guidance throughout the session. It’s amazing how immersive and ‘real’ it felt. After starting with a Cessna you can go on to fly almost anything from any airfield in the world. I can’t wait to have another go and would definitely recommend John and Sim-Fly to anyone interested in learning the basics of flying or as a present for anyone interested in flying or aeroplanes.
From Tony Smedley via the Sim-Fly Facebook page – 02-08-2016
I had a great session on the simulator, flying both a Cessna and also a Lancaster bomber. The presentation by John was a skilful blend of ‘fun and instruction’ that put me at my ease in controlling the aircraft. And to have the opportunity to fly a ‘Dambuster’ Lancaster was out of this world.
Whether you’ve never flown before, or if you are an old hand at it I would certainly recommend it. I’ll be back.
From Robert John Utting via the Sim-Fly Facebook page – 21-07-2016
Had an amazing experience at Sim Fly. I thoroughly enjoyed my hour session on the simulator and would highly recommend it to anyone who has even a vague interest in aviation. John’s knowledge and tuition was fantastic and before long he had me flying the simulator like a pro (well, nearly) The list of airplanes to choose from is huge and you can choose to take off from almost any runway in the world. The session was very much geared around what i wanted to do, I chose to take off from a tiny airstrip close to where I used to live so I could see the place from the air. I was very impressed with the set up and the realism had me immersed from the very start.
From Richard Moore via the Sim-Fly Facebook page – 15-06-2016
An amazingly realistic flying experience at the controls of virtually any aircraft you want, anywhere in the world. You get the full setup with control yoke, rudder pedals, throttle, full instrument & radio panel, giant screen projection and brilliant tuition from John Hoyte, a retired airline captain and flying instructor. I can highly recommend you get yourself installed in the captain’s seat, and fly, fly, fly. Book up now, you won’t regret it.
From Lynda Bowden via the Sim-Fly Facebook page – 13-05-2016
It was a great experience, we were made welcome and felt at ease from the off. The instructor was thorough and reassuring and John really enjoyed flying a Cessna, Tiger Moth and Spitfire. We definitely recommend it.
From Jolene Towne via the Sim-Fly Facebook page – 20-05-2016
I purchased this as a gift for my husband and he absolutely loved it. John was very welcoming and friendly and extremely knowledgeable. I would not hesitate to recommend this and we will definitely be back. thank you again.
From Jim Edmonds via the Sim-Fly Facebook page – 10-07-2016
Toby had a brilliant day at Sim-fly on Saturday. Great to see him take off and land both a single engine and a 747. Hope we can come back for another visit.
From Brad Jordan via the Sim-Fly Facebook page – 10-06-2016
Awesome set up! A must for anyone!
