Check out their website!

My brother got me this for my birthday. We did their Adventure Flight, which is about 50 minutes.:D

It is a full b737 Max cockpit simulator, except no motion. There are only 2 such things privately owned in the country.

We flew from RPUY to RPLL in the Philippines. That's Cauayan City to Manila. I flew manually until we reached altitude and heading, then he kicked in the autopilot. Stayed on autopilot until 100 feet high on landing.

My brother was my "coach". He is retired after over 45 years flying and works there part time, and said I did pretty good. Better than most. Of course I do have 90 hours in a c172!;) Surprisingly, with all his hours, both military and civilian, he has never been to the Philippines.

The only problem I had was that on climb out I was trying to fly VFR. That is hard to do in a 737, since you can't really see out the nose very well, and it cruises slightly nose high anyway. I did better when I focused on the flight director panel.

No motion sickness, until the very end when we taxied up to a gate. Then my eyes and ears disagreed as to what was going on. Brought my eyes back in the cockpit and it subsided, but the after effect lasted for about an hour.

My in-laws sent me an article about this recently, looked pretty cool. I'm about 10 hrs into my flight training and thought about maybe trying it after I complete my PPL. I thought it had motion though.

No, not this one. No motion. That would probably be about 10,000 times the cost.
