1. CAN I TAKE MY FAMILY OR FRIENDS WITH ME? WILL WE FIT IN THE COCKPIT?
You might be surprised! There are several rows of seats behind the nose where the cockpit is located, just like on a real aircraft. The first row is BUSINESS CLASS that seats four people, the second is ECONOMY CLASS, seating six. This means you can take up to ten people with you, seating them wherever you wish.
2. I’M NOT A PILOT AND HAVE NEVER HELD A YOKE BEFORE. WILL I BE ABLE TO DO IT?
There’s no need to worry about the flight being too challenging. The instructor is an experienced pilot and will run you through anything you might need to know. This professional instructor will also be available for you in the cockpit throughout the whole flight.
3. CAN I LET ANYONE ELSE TRY THEIR HAND AT PILOTING?
The individual experience packages or events enable you to share with one other person. It all depends on the circumstances and length of the program of the given package. Some programs enable it, some do not. This all depends on previous arrangements.
4. IS IT REALLY LIKE BEING ON BOARD A REAL BOEING?
Yes. Our simulator is the closest you can get to the real thing – a B737-800 NG aircraft. All the materials used, the parts and controls, are 100% authentic. This is also the reason why our simulator is used for professional aviation training. To get a better idea, see our photo gallery
5. ARE THE PILOTS AND FLIGHT ATTENDANTS REAL, OR IS IT ALL JUST FOR SHOW?
Our captains, pilots, and even our flight attendants are real professionals. This means that they really do fly, and really tend to passengers during flights for various airlines. Our training courses guarantee an authentic experience, providing in-depth expertise.
6. WHAT IS THE SIMULATOR CAPABLE OF? JUST FLYING OR SOMETHING MORE EXTREME?
Naturally, real flying goes hand in hand with exposure to potential crisis situations in various weather conditions. There are hundreds of situations like these. Let’s go over a few of the basic modes the simulator has to offer: sudden avionics or other systems failure, engine on fire, in-flight fire with the need to deploy oxygen masks, wind shear, lightning strike, turbulence, fuel deficiency, emergency landing, and more. We are also able to simulate a sunny or rainy day, showers, all possible cloud types, mild to severe storms, drizzles, snowstorms, and even a frozen runway. We’re able to simulate just about anything and you can be sure you’ll work up a sweat even on a cold winter day.
7. IS THE PILOT’S COCKPIT CLOSED OFF OR CAN ANYONE SEE WHAT’S GOING ON INSIDE?
The whole cockpit and passenger area are hermetically sealed off. This means that no-one can see inside. We respect your privacy as captain and it’s you who decides who gets to step on board or not.
8. WE’RE THINKING OF GETTING THIS AS A GIFT FOR OUR CHILD. WHAT IS THE MINIMUM AGE REQUIREMENT?
Age is not an issue – we don’t have a limit. What is important is height. We recommend a minimum height of 130 centimetres since the child is then able to see outside of the cockpit, and is able to reach the basic controls. If the child is not able to see outside, we have a booster cushion prepared on hand for such cases. We’re ready for anything that comes up.
9. IS THERE A REQUIREMENT OF SOME PRE-FLIGHT PREPARATIONS OR WILL THIS BE PROVIDED ON SITE?
There is no need for any pre-flight prep :-). Upon entering the cockpit, our team of professional instructors will run you through the basics of piloting an aircraft. To put it simply – they will explain everything you might need for your flight. Our professionals also take into account any of your previous flight experience, skills or knowledge of the field.
10. IF I TAKE MY FRIENDS WITH ME, WON‘T THEY BE BORED?
Absolutely not! Everything is just like on board a real airliner. After takeoff, our flight attendants serve refreshments, tend to passengers and make sure everything is running smoothly. We take good care of everyone on board MY AIRLINES.
11. IS THIS EXPERIENCE FOR EVERYONE?
The piloting experience is really for everyone. There are some exceptions, though – the adrenaline flights, namely „MAYDAY“ that feature an in-flight fire have certain restrictions, mainly for preventive reasons. We do not recommend these flights to people with heart conditions or breathing problems.
12. AS A CLIENT, MAY I CHOOSE THE TAKEOFF AIRPORT?
Well, of course! You have the option to choose from 25,000 airports located all around the world, and dozens of weather conditions. One of our clients even located his house from a bird’s-eye view :-).
13. IS THE SIMULATOR FIXED OR DOES IT MOVE ACCORDING TO HOW IT IS PILOTED?
Naturally, the simulator is static but thanks to the 180-degree view angle from the cockpit and Full HD projection screen, we are able to create an optical illusion that feels so real, that your eyes and brain will be tricked into thinking you‘re experiencing the real thing. You really feel the aircraft tilt, which can result in mild nausea. The passengers can enjoy both the view from inside the cockpit and from the passenger windows.
14. IS THE SIMULATOR FULLY ACCESSIBLE?
Yes. Hassle-free entry directly from the street for the elderly and the physically challenged. No stairs, no steps, no narrow spaces. The pilot seats have their limits, though – due to the spatial requirements and a copious number of controls.
15. ARE YOU ABLE TO SIMULATE, SAY, A TERRORIST ATTACK?
Absolutely not. Considering the certifications, these situations are not possible under any circumstances. In case of such demand, the flight is immediately cancelled with no possibility of refund. And let’s not even start about the other responsibilities we have when such cases occur.
16. WHY CAN’T I GET INTO THE RESERVATIONS SYSTEM WITHOUT THE BOARDING PASS CODE?
Think of it as being the same situation like when boarding a real plane without a boarding pass. Purchase any of our packages
and your boarding pass will be sent to your e-mail address immediately. You can then use it to pick a suitable date for your flight.
17. CAN A PERSON IN A WHEELCHAIR TRY PILOTING AS WELL?
Our simulator is fully accessible but keep in mind that since the cockpit is a copy of the real thing, space is limited. We understand that every situation requires a different approach, and it depends on the specific limits of each client. We are ready to do our best to facilitate the fullest possible experience.
