logo_125px "The 737 flight simulator at Gloucestershire Airport provides a very realistic experience, allowing you to take off and land a 737 at airports worldwide. The instruction was friendly and informative and a 1.5 hour session really lets you get fully accustomed with the controls. The simulator enables changes in time of day and weather to be introduced to add to the challenge of landing. Altogether great fun and a very memorable day." ratingView all reviews

Description

Product Description

A flight to challenge! 

The flight from Salzburg to Innsbruck will test your mettle and keep you on the edge of your seat as it keeps you very busy, constantly following the guidance of one of our instructors.

Try it in visual conditions and watch the Alps go past the window or try your hand at flying in a blizzard and have your senses completely fooled by the reality of masses of snow rushing at the windscreen.

Whatever you choose, you will finally have to guide your aircraft around the narrow Alpine valleys to line up with and land on the runway at Innsbruck. The approach and landing into Innsbruck is one of the most dramatic approaches to any airport in Europe, as the plane soars along a deep mountain valley, and it is renowned for being one of the most challenging landings in existence. Most airports are Category A or B but Innsbruck is a Category C, having certain problems for the approach and/or landing and/or take-off. Actual airline pilots require extra training and an endorsement from their airline to fly it for real but you get the chance to check it out for yourself and find out what they mean.

 

You at the controls not the instructor!

We NEVER forget that it is you and not your instructor that is gaining the experience and with this in mind you will remain at the controls throughout the session. At taxi, take off, general handling and landing, your instructor will offer advice but the flying is all down to you. Your instructor will only touch the controls to demonstrate a particular flying technique but it is really down to you to get stuck in and enjoy the sensation of flight.

 

WHAT TO EXPECT

  • Upon arrival you will be met by one of our operations staff and shown to the waiting area where refreshments are available.
  • At your designated flight time you will meet your instructor who will give you a brief introduction to the Salzburg-Innsbruck flightpath and what to expect.
  • The next step is where the fun really starts, it’s off to the simulator where you will find the engines running and the aircraft ready to go
  • Seat belt signs on, flaps down and throttles forwards – 30 minutes of flying goes in a flash and will leave you wanting more!
  • Spectator jump seat – share your experience with a friend or family member (Only enough room for 1 passenger).

OPTIONAL EXTRAS
