ALL ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE

Half Day Flight Simulator in Blackpool

Experience this half day flight simulation activity in Blackpool

If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to be a real airline pilot, this half day flight simulator experience in Blackpool will provide an intensive introduction. Enter the replica cockpit of a Boeing 737-800NG and enjoy a five-hour training session with a 737 Type Rated instructor.

The Boeing 737 is the world’s leading twin-engined short to medium range passenger aircraft, and the simulator boasts a variety of features that would be instantly recognisable to real Boeing pilots. These include a steel and aluminium structure, authentic instruments and chronometers, dual linked yokes, tiller wheel and rudder pedals. Wraparound HD monitors offer incredible lifelike visuals, and there’s a realistic aft section with seats for family and friends. During the half day experience, your instructor will talk you through all the controls and explain exactly how a flight is conducted. You’ll learn to program flights, conduct pre-flight checks, start the engines, taxi and take off. Whilst in the air, you’ll practice maintaining headings, altitude and pitch, while following a variety of authentic procedures—including tricky approaches and air emergencies like engine failure. Once you’ve gained confidence, you’ll command an entire route between the airports of your choice, before enjoying a final hour's dry hire time to further hone your skills. Chocks away!

The half day flight simulator in Blackpool would make a unique experience gift for aspiring pilots and aeronautical enthusiasts. Surprise your aircraft captain with an Experience Days voucher, today!
