What to Expect from PPL Experienced Hire
You experience starts with a pre-flight briefing with one of our professional flight simulator instructors. Every part of your flight will be discussed and if there is anything you would like to achieve during your time in the simulator now is the time to mention it! If you have any technical questions you can pick the instructors brains, they will be doing the same with you trying to find out your experience level.
When you step into the simulator it’ll be engines off and sat at a gate. Real Boeing procedures will need to be followed with checklists as you and your co-pilot prepare the aircraft. You will programme the flight management computer, set up the cockpit switches, start the engines and make your way to the runway as you taxi the most popular commercial passenger aircraft to date!
All checks complete and it’s time to push forward with 60,000 KGs of thrust! You will hurtle down the runway to rotate at nearly 140 Kts, 45 seconds latrer you will be at 3000 feet.
Your current skills as a pilot will definitely be required as the aircraft and your instructor challenges you over the 2 hour period. The first hour allows you to get your bearings in the cockpit and a feeling for the way the aircraft handles. The second hour is down to what you would like to achieve! See how you handle some emergencies or maybe try to land in some of the world’s most challenging airports!
PPL experienced hire is a brilliant introduction to the 737 800 and the processes involved with flying these large passenger jets. You’ll find it informative, challenging and a real thrill!
