We have a wide variety of attractions within this book, but none quite as unique as Flightdeck Experience in Rossendale and secretly, I had been very excited about visiting this particular attraction ever since I shortlisted it in 2016. When I eagerly arrived, I was greeted by Steve, one of Flightdecks owners and co founder of this once in a life time experience. After a short chat and only after the last pilot had safely flown to his final destination, Steve offered me a chance to fly a 737-800 from Manchester to Liverpool, how could I say no! As someone who flies an awful lot with my job, I loved every minute and to be able to see just how it all works and what life as a pilot is really like, my admiration for pilots and the difficult job they do went up 100%. I would recommend this experience to anyone and with the addition of the new Vulcan bomber, you will want to return time and again! A huge Top 100 thumbs up for this attraction!
