The Virtual Jet Centre offers a unique service which can help you learn to fly, conquer your fear of flying, hold corporate and team building events, or simply have a great party experience. Situated at Chudleigh, Devon, the Virtual Jet Centre is conveniently located for both Exeter and Plymouth.

The Virtual Jet Centre is a fully bespoke 737-800 jet simulator experience. This award-winning business is located near the small town of Chudleigh in the beautiful county of Devon. The location has easy access to the A38 and is just a stone’s throw away from the historic city of Exeter and within easy reach of Plymouth.

Virtual Jet Centre has developed a custom built 737-800 simulator which weighs in excess of 70 tonne. Originally developed for the military, the innovative jet simulator combines a state-of-the art full-motion platform with a 220 degree ‘field of view’ display making this simulator the closest experience to a real aircraft.

The instructors have commercial airline experience with over 100,000 hours of combined flight time. The instructors and professional staff are always on hand to offer advice and assistance when you need it most. Whether you are preparing for an assessment, need to renew your type rating or you simply want a fun day out with your family and loved ones, Virtual Jet Centre is always on hand to help.

Back in 2013, Captain Andy Wilkins founded the business to share his passion for aviation with a much wider audience. With Andy’s wealth of experience, infectious nature and enthusiasm he is the perfect role model to inspire others.

Andy’s extensive experience spans over 30 years and originates from Thomson Airways where he flew both Airbus and Boeing Aircraft for nearly 20 years. Andy’s first love for aviation started as a Private Pilot instructor which was soon followed by training Commercial Airline Pilots. In addition, Andy is a Multi-Crew Course Instructor (MCCI) which aims to provide formal training for pilots already flying multi-crew aircraft but who have never received any formal MCC training.

Virtual Jet Centre is a state-of-the-art aviation and training facility. In addition to commercial training, they also offer flight experiences, gifts, team building and courses to the general public. Their services also cater for the corporate sector as well as providing educational events and venue hiring to businesses across the UK.

Their most popular service is a unique ‘Fear of Flying’ course which surprisingly affects a number of travellers. This innovative course aims to combat the debilitating fear which affects relationships and the ability to travel. The Virtual Jet Centre approaches every individual with sensitivity and care and aims to empower, support and provide knowledge on a one-to-one basis. A significant part of this course involves teaching the individual to fly the jet by themselves. In addition the Virtual Jet Centre is the only business of this type to have a realistic aircraft cabin environment which is used to build confidence and confront fears.

As Captain Andy Wilkins says

“Encouragement, knowledge and great communication are fundamental within the Virtual Jet Centre. We’ll unlock potential whilst having fun and boosting individual and team morale.”
