What our customers are saying:

"Our 9 year old son flew the Simulator at Aero Strategies Group recently and he LOVED it!  He described it as “Amazing”!  And “it was so exciting to get to fly!”  The experience so closely emulated actual flight, that he felt like he was landing that 737 at Charles de Gaulle in Paris.  We highly recommend the flight sim for anyone, and we can’t wait to go back!"

Amanda - Raleigh

"As a big aviation enthusiast myself, the immersion matters the most to me when flying in a flight simulator. All the simulator cockpits I have tried throughout my life could not compare to the state-of-the-art equipment found in this facility. The flight experience felt so real! It made me completely lose track of time. It’s the type of experience I’ve been looking for, and I highly recommend it!"

Anton - Cary

“As a Mom of a teenager, who's dreaming about a career as a future pilot/airspace engineer, we both were impressed. 
We have visited several testing facilities earlier, and my son previously had real flight experiences earlier on other airplanes or simulators, but this was one of a kind providing a realistic flying experience. Can’t wait to return.”

Natalia - Cary

"I watched my 13-year-old son fly and land (without auto pilot), a Boeing 737 thanks to Tom and his team at Throttle Up. It was an amazing experience from start to finish. Everything was as if this was a real flight. I was sending pictures to family, and they thought he was flying a real plane! My son had the time of his life, and we will DEFINITELY do this again except next time I want to give it a try!"

Gail - Raleigh

"What an impressive opportunity for a teen interested in aviation! Just stepping into the cockpit of the simulator felt thrilling - the experience is definitely very immersive and highly realistic. My teen loved the instructor's explanations of the controls and in-flight procedures made hands-on time meaningful. As my son said: “This was very challenging, and I would absolutely do it again!”

Yelena - Raleigh

"WOW!! This was an amazing experience! I always wondered what skills were required to fly these planes. Having the opportunity to find out firsthand from the captain's seat of a Boeing 737 simulator was a dream come true for me. I loved the balance of learning something new but also experiencing the thrill of what it's like to be in command of a passenger jet! This was so cool!!"
