Training #1: Large Aircraft Introduction

Time in the simulator: 1 hour 30 minutes (€349, -)

Ideally, pilots thinking about taking this session have the following qualification: CPL& ME/IR

The transition onto a large aircraft carries a lot of new experiences, new inputs, re-adjustments of your scanning procedures and dealing with the effects of much larger inertia. Our instructors will introduce the basic principles, layout and handling characteristics of a large aircraft. This gives you the opportunity to get a feeling on how an aircraft of this size reacts on your control inputs before going into MCC, screening etc.

Once your booking is processed, we will provide you with the basic generic procedures used during the session. Following that, you'll have enough time to prepare for the session and get the most efficient use of your time in the simulator.

Among others, the training covers the following topics:

  • Introduction to the cockpit environment of the B737NG
  • 2 - 3 practice departures to familiarise yourself with procedures, speeds and flight characteristics
  • Manual aircraft handling: pitch and power, climb and descent, speed changes, coordinated turns and steep turns
  • Vectored ILS Approaches. First on automatics to note pitch and power values, then manual approach with guidance from the instructor for training purposes
