Dream Aero seeks sites for new flight simulator concept
Colliers International’s Licensed & Leisure team has been instructed by Dream Aero, an international leisure organisation specialising in flying simulators, which gives the opportunity for the public to experience piloting a Boeing 737-800 or an Airbus a320.
The flight simulators offer an authentic flying experience with fully functioning cockpit equipment and real life commercial itineraries where aspiring pilots can ‘take control’ with the help of a professional pilot. Participants are given a full scale flight visualisation from take-off through to landing, an experience which is enhanced by the dynamic moving platform of the flight simulator and pressurised cabin.
Ross Kirton, head of UK leisure agency at Colliers International, said: “Dream Aero is a premium, truly authentic flying experience with ear popping and all! The concept will be well received in a number of high footfall locations where families are looking for activities to entertain on a day out. We envisage the simulator to also be popular with flying enthusiasts and older clients for team building days, birthday parties and other celebrations.
“Initially, we will be targeting high footfall leisure destinations across central London and major shopping malls across the UK.”
The simulator is able to be installed into a ‘in line’ unit or as a mall unit or concessionary agreement.
