Our pre-sim assessment sessions are all conducted on our fixed-base B737-800 simulator at Gloucestershire Airport and include comprehensive briefing and debriefing; all relevant instrument approach plates, checklists, etc. are provided.
Call us on 01452 238011 and we can discuss the best way forward to prepare you for your sim assessment.
At Virtual Aerospace Gloucester we have directly helped many pilots start their airline careers or move into new employment with airlines such as Easyjet, Ryanair, Thomas Cook and Jet2, to name but a few!
Preparation for the Real Thing!
We are aware that most pilots using our facility will then go on to use Level D full flight simulators, or possibly even continue onto the real aircraft.
With this in mind the primary flight controls, both rudders and yoke, are fully linked and respond as closely as possible to real Boeing aircraft! The result is that you will get the feedback you should expect on both the real aircraft as well as full flight simulators, a key factor in preparing for assessment.
The cockpits are 1:1 scale, fully enclosed and accurate in every detail.
Out of the window visuals are as detailed and realistic as most current Level D standard simulators.
Initially you will taken to our briefing room where over a coffee your instructor will discuss with you what you are looking to achieve, previous history and session goals.
You will then complete a full sortie briefing typically taking 15 – 20 minutes. After this, it’s off to the simulator, which is when your time allocation will start. All sessions conclude with a de-brief, assessment of skills and future goal setting if necessary.
Our sessions are kept informal and relaxed; this is an environment where you should feel comfortable about making mistakes and improving technique.
