What to get the man who has everything this Father’s Day

If soap-on-a-rope, socks or aftershave don’t do it for dad, why not shatter the mould this Father’s Day and put him behind the controls of a $320 million aircraft, or at least the next best thing?

British Airways is offering Father’s Day specials on its full-motion flight simulators and if you plan it right dad could be Captain Dad, adding a little excitement to his next boring business trip to London.

The airline is discounting simulator gift vouchers booked by June 30 by 20%. These can be used on any available dates during the next 12 months. Hour-long flights in a Boeing 737 simulator are R5742 and the equivalent in a Boeing 777 is R6462.

The session starts with a full technical briefing from an instructor pilot, followed by an hour’s flight in which time wannabe pilot dads can take off and land from multiple airports as well as cruise through blue skies. No previous flying experience is necessary.

Gift vouchers are available at or by e-mailing Bookings must be made by June 30 2014 using the promotional code DAD14. The simulators are located at British Airways’ flight training centre near Heathrow.
