The Emirates Aviation Experience features four state of the art fixed based Flight Simulators; two Airbus A380’s and two Boeing B777’s.
Select an airport from any of our ten destinations, the time of day and weather conditions, and pilot the plane through a take-off, landing or advanced landing.
Perfect for beginners, the experience is guided by a trained simulator instructor, and is a great way to gain insight into what it takes to fly a commercial aircraft.

The Airbus A380 was first launched in 2005 and with a double-deck throughout the cabin, it is still today the largest commercial aircraft in the world. It can carry up to 544 passengers in the four-class configuration and with a 567 tonnes maximum takeoff weight it is a miracle of modern commercial aviation. You can discover a lot more about the Airbus A380 at our exhibition.
The Boeing B777 was launched in 1994 and it is still one of the most popular aircrafts in the world. It can carry up to 396 passengers in a two-class configuration and similarly to the A380, it can fly very long distances. A B777 can fly from London to Sydney in 19.5 hours. The same journey in 1965 would have required 6 stops and would take almost two days!
The Airbus A380 cockpit, similar to all recent Airbus aircrafts, features a sidestick control system, which sits to the left of the pilot’s seat. This in one of the main differences between the Airbus and Boeing control navigation systems.
The Boeing B777 cockpit features a control column, or in other words a yoke controller, which sits in the middle of the pilot’s seat. The navigation control system is one of the main differences between Airbus and Boeing.
