Hey Gents, Jan-Erik Andelin, kindly gave me permission to post this:
FlightSafetyBoeing in Long Beach, California has come up with a program to take a ride in their full flight simulators with a qualified instructor.
The cost is $149 for one person, $299 for two people, this buys you a briefing on the simulator, instructions on how to operate the controls, and & "1" hour at the controls. If you are an experienced pilot, the boys will shorten the briefing & give you more time at the controls. The instructors would rather fly than chitchat. Our contract people call this the "Sky Path program which I feel is kind of gay, but who am I to argue.
We have "2" 717 simulators.
MD90EFD simulator, only one airline flies this type of airplane, it is a MD90 with a full glass cockpit, kind of funky for you airplane buffs.
MD11 simulator (when available, kind of full at times)
MD82 simulator (analog cockpit)
Hell, for a dollar extra you can slide down the cabin trainer slide that the flight attendants use for training.
We also offer interview preps in all of the simulators. If interested in the sim ride or the interview prep
send me an email:
With training slowing down, instructors are bored & you will get more simulator time than what you paid for.
