We are about to close after 9 years!

The Emirates Aviation Experience will permanently close on Sunday 5 June 2022.

It is with great sadness that we must inform you that the Emirates Aviation Experience will be closing to the public later this year. The sponsorship agreement between Emirates Airline and the cable car  comes to an end in June 2022 and we must close before then in order to prepare the building for the new occupants!

We opened our doors back in 2013 to offer a behind the scenes view of a modern commercial airline and the opportunity to pilot an Airbus A380 or a Boeing 777.  The past 9 years have been a real pleasure as almost one million visitors got to experience what we had to offer and over 25,000 simulator sessions were delivered to budding pilots from all over the world. We hope all of our visitors will remember the experience with fond memories – we certainly will. We will continue to operate normally for as long as possible but would encourage any voucher holders or anybody interested in visiting to arrange your visit for before the end of April.  If you have any questions please email us. Many thanks, the Emirates Aviation Experience team

About the Emirates Aviation Experience

We provide visitors with a unique insight into the world of modern commercial aviation and the opportunity to take to the skies on an Airbus A380 or Boeing 777 flight simulator. Conveniently located next to the Emirates Air Line, visitors will be educated and entertained in equal measure at the fantastic Emirates Aviation Experience.


We were absolutely delighted with our experience, and want to send our biggest thanks. We loved every minute. – Facebook Review


Spread over 300 square metres and two floors we make use of state-of-the-art technology, interactive displays and life-size aircraft models to bring the exciting and fascinating world of modern aviation come alive. The venue also features a genuine Rolls Royce jet engine stripped back to show the inner workings of one of the most powerful engines currently in operation.

The Emirates Aviation Experience features the world’s first public facing commercial flight simulators of their kind; two Airbus A380s and two Boeing B777s, utilising landscape visuals, allowing participants to practice their take-off and landing skills at ten popular destinations worldwide.

Opened in 2013 by the Mayor of London and with new features and exhibits being added regularly why not visit us and get as excited as we are about commercial aviation.

In July 2015 we renovated our exhibition and in collaboration with Rolls-Royce a beautiful Trent 900 engine joined our exhibition.
