If you are struggling to find the perfect gift this Christmas, why not give the truly unique gift of ‘flight’ and book a loved one a session on a British Airways full-motion flight simulator?

To celebrate the festive season the airline is offering a special 20 per cent Christmas discount for all gift vouchers booked by 24 December, 2016.

This truly unique experience will begin with the user ‘reporting for duty’ at British Airways’ state-of-the-art Flight Training Centre near Heathrow where the airline’s 4,200 professional pilots are trained.

Would-be-pilots will have the chance to take-off at any of British Airways’ near 200 worldwide destinations and land at another, with the simulators using cutting edge motion, audio and graphics technology to deliver a completely immersive experience.

All sessions are accompanied by a fully qualified British Airways instructor and no previous flying experience is necessary.

Flights in Boeing 767 simulators are available at just £319, reduced from £399 or in a simulated 747 jumbo jet or Boeing 777 for £359, reduced from £449.

The experience starts with a full technical briefing from a pilot followed by an hour’s flying time in which you can land and take off from multiple airports as well as cruising through blue skies day or night.
