The Gift Idea For Your Man: Flight Experience


I don't know what my Honey is talking about when he is complaining that it is hard to find a nice gift for me. Really? All he needs to do is to walk into Tiffany's. So easy!

He, on the other hand, is a tough person to buy for.  He is not into jewelry. A sweater or a pair of pants won't make him happy either. He says he loves electronics, but when I go to Best Buy, I get lost. Aghh. Four times a year, i.e. every birthday, Father's day, Christmas, and Valentine's Day, I struggle.

Now, if you are anything like me and having a hard time to pick a nice gift for your man, I have a really neat gift to suggest you (I got it for my man on his birthday last year, and he loved it) - a flight lesson at Flight Deck, a flight simulation center. No worries, no actual flying is involved, but the experience is still pretty awesome.

I came across this idea when I was scrolling down the Tripadvisor's Top Things To Do In Orange County list. These flight lessons were listed as #4 and had great reviews. So I got a gift Certificate for  a 30-minute flight on a Boeing 737 lesson. They also have lessons for flying fighter jets, but I thought that since my honey is a family man, Boeing 737 should do.

My man was excited. Soon, he made the appointment, and we were off to the Flight Deck. As you probably guessed, Alex and I tagged along and got the jump-seats to sit on.

I apologize in advance for lousy pictures, but lighting was poor and I only had my cellphone camera with me, but you will still get the idea of what the experience was like.
All Boeing models
There are group and birthday activities available for kids ages 7-14. Fun!
From the Control Room
After a quick tour, we were taken to an office for instructions and a quick rundown of the upcoming flight.
The instructors here are true pilots and patiently answered all the questions we could come up with. Finally, were were off to the cockpit of a model that is flown by Southwest Airlines.
There is a name and purpose for each button. No joke.
The flight route was from LAX to John Wane Airport.
And here's my happy pilot xx

Enjoy!
