This simulator was at the Edge Cinema in Katoomba a few years back now. I had the opportunity to use it with my daughter and father in law. Very impressive bit of kit.

Edit: Correction, this wasn't the one that was up here, it was very similar though but by a company called VS Jet.

This one definitely doesn't move around!

Dave, is it true that John Travolta is a QANTAS pilot?

No.  John Travolta is not a pilot employed by QANTAS.

He owns an old QANTAS Boeing 707 - for which he does have the type rating (licence) to fly and it was this which caught the interest of QANTAS some years ago.  He was engaged as an ambassador for the airline and undertook the Spirit Of Friendship Tour as a promotional exercise to foster international goodwill and encourage people to fly again after September 11.
