Bangkok Travel Guide

Take the Cockpit of a Virtual Boeing

Far beyond any flight simulator you can install on your own computer, the Flight Experience Center in Bangkok allows guests to try flying a commercial jet firsthand, without the risk involved in actually attempting to be a pilot.

Ever wondered why being a commercial airline pilot is one of the most stressful jobs in the world?

Try landing a Boeing 737-800 on a simulator at Bangkok’s new Flight Experience Center.

Guest "pilots" can feel with 85 percent accuracy what it’s like to takeoff, fly and land the famed passenger aircraft. The realism is chilling, thrilling and mildly unnerving.

Agaphas Teparagul, owner and managing director of the Bangkok Flight Experience Center, says his company uses the cockpit of the 737 because it's the most widely used aircraft in the world -- on average, one takes off every five minutes from any given airport.
