It's then time to climb into the simulator and put your new knowledge to the test, you advance the throttles and your aircraft hurtles down the runway and takes off.
You’re airborne, and you can start to relax and appreciate the stunningly realistic scenery. But you don’t have too much time for sightseeing; you need to manage your air speed, maintain your altitude and watch your heading. You need to be aware of any other traffic in the area, and monitor a dazzling array of screens and indicators.
Now For the greatest challenge!!
It’s up to you to manoeuvre your aircraft to set up for the landing.
Lower the undercarriage & align with the runway on your perfect approach.
The runway rushes up to meet you and you must judge a gentle ‘flare’ to slow your rate of descent and smoothly touch down on the centerline.
You will also have a photo opportunity at the end of your flight session.
