Join one of our flight simulator instructors at the controls of a fully operational B-737-800 flight simulator for the 30+ minutes flight from Salzburg to Innsbruck in the Austrian Alps for the flight simulator experience of a lifetime.
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.
THIS IS A SIMPLY MUST HAVE ADD-ON !
Ever wondered how to start and prepare an airliner for departure? Or want to taxi to the runway? For just £25.00 extra you can add this MUST HAVE 15 minute add-on to your session and really get that full airline experience.
Once your briefing is complete you will enter the cockpit to find it completely shutdown and parked at the Gate – or cold and dark as we describe it, this is how real pilots find it when they turn up for the first flight of the day. Guided by your instructor you will slowly bring the aircraft to life, you will follow real world checklists, program the flight computer and prepare the aircraft for flight. You will then be pushed back from the gate, start the engines and configure the cockpit for taxi. With both engines started and the pushback truck out of the way you will taxi the aircraft to the holding point at the runway. With final checks complete and lined up on the runway you are ready for your session time to begin.
This add on is a MUST HAVE addition to all our flight simulator experiences. The level of realism this adds cannot be underestimated totally immersing you in the world of the big jet pilot.
