Went for a sim ride yesterday. I am a qualified pilot of small aircraft but never flown a jet. Simon the instructor was superb- must be a real challenge to switch effortlessly between expectation and ability of the clients but he achieves this easily. Really enjoyed the time in the Sim and got a fascinating insight into how the pros fly their 'heavy metal'!. Managed 2 ILS approaches into 27R at heathrow with a third single engine ILS into gat wick after a sneaky engine fire and shutdown. Great fun and didn't make a complete fool of myself. Would thoroughly recommend it for PPLs to do something a bit different but be warned its nothing like a cessna and you really are starting pretty green! Respect to the professionals!
