Commercial simulator

Recommended Posts

For those of you who maybe interested, especially Australians.I had a terrific experience yesterday. I had my first flightever, in a commercial simulator. This is located at DarlingHarbour, Sydney, Australia.It's a full size 737-400 simulator flight deck, with all real instruments,& a very helpful co-pilot, who either does it all or helps you with as much as you like. You can start engines, program the FMC,take off manually, follow sids & stars manually & land if youwish.They have various offerings, from half hour, one hour, & moreexpensive options.I was really impressed, as I'd never used the real yoke, twirlinstruments, spoiler lever, full sized thrust levers, gearlevers, etc. It was so exhausting scanning the vital readings& doing so many crucial things at once - barely had time tolook out the window. I completed the Melbourne to Sydney flight& it really makes you realise how difficult real flight is.I am in no way connected with the company.A great bonus is a full DVD of you in action plus still shots.
