Flightdeck’s Flying Simulators

Toys for big boys were in abundance when we recently visited Flightdeck in Newmarket.

These machines are used in conjunction with Computer Flight simulator software to train pilots and to enhance the homes of wealthly enthusiasts around the globe. I must admit, I never thought that people would want the cockpit of a 747 in their living room, but apparently they do!

John, Peter and Sam and the gigantic 777 cockpit!

The big machines are $150,000 and up, but Flightdeck also make the beautiful Jetmax, at $15,000, that I would definitely have in my house!

Where Am I?
