Ten-Second Takeaway

Always wanted to be like Pete “Maverick” Mitchell from Top Gun? Here’s your best shot at it. Flight 4 Fantasy, a simulated flight experience puts you in the seat of the captain.

Take Flight

There’s just something about Tom Cruise in Top Gun, John Travolta in real life {did you know his house is shaped like an airplane hangar? } and all those film that involves planes and pilots. Plus, have you seen our stellar Indian Air Force? Phew. Dreamy to say the least. While it is really hard work, it’s also got that thrill. So if you’ve always dreamed of being a pilot but didn’t quite cut it, take off instantly to Flight 4 Fantasy in Koramangala.

A simulation experience centre, you get to control airplanes here — commercial jets, military fighter or general aviation ones, as the captain and lead pilot. Since we’re one among those who dream of flying, off we went for a recce. Starting off as commercial pilots, we jumped into the cockpit of a Boeing 737 and were quite giddy with delight at the instrumentation and controls. It’s ACTUALLY a 1:1 model so you’re pretty much dealing with the real thing! And the 15-minute flight was a real thrill. Oh the taking off, cruise mode and then landing… such a high. And the best part is, you actually get to choose which airport you fly out of an into. So, how does taking off at London’s Heathrow en route to the picturesque Hawaii sound? More the private aircraft sort? No problemo! Hop into the Cessna 171 which for a slower and single-engine experience. This one’s used by plenty of celebrities from Harrison Ford to Morgan Freeman, so don’t turn your nose up at it!

Cruise Control

But, if like us, you’re a military fan and a fighter pilot has been your long term fantasy, suit up for the fighter jet simulators. With spot-on 4D visuals to give your that near-exact speed and when you nose-dive, pitch and roll, you’ll be hanging on for dear life. But, please! Don’t let go of the controls. Feeling particularly skilled? Go on and challenge a friend to aerial combat or partner up to shoot down hostile enemies. For all you lone rangers, there’s even solo missions to take on. Fasten you seat belts, folks!
