"Hey mum - this is me!"
IN his continuing search for the more weird, whacky and wondrous in the world of travel, DAVID ELLIS if you've ever wondered what its like to be up front actually flying that jet plane – instead of sitting down the back just wishing for the flight to end – you can now do so in Malaysia Airlines' jet simulator.
Just three people at a time go aboard an actual flight simulator at Subang airport, with off-duty pilots and engineers explaining the mysteries of how it's all done.
The 1-hour experience costs RM500 (approx AU$170) per person and after you've chosen a destination to fly to, you'll get a bit of "hands-on flying" under the supervision of real pilots and engineers.
And to prove to your mates that you have "flown a passenger jet" you'll even get a certificate to show them.
