A real simulator

Monday, January 2nd, 2012

Having friends in ‘high’ places opens up a window of opportunities; tonight we went ‘flying’ in flight simulators…REAL flight simulators (as in, the ones used by KLM for training and examining their pilots).

WowWowWow, WHAT an experience…this is as real as it gets!!

Over 1.5h of take-offs and landings, some low altitude flying over ‘Het Westland’ and Amsterdam, making maneuvers that you *never* want the pilot to do when you are a passenger in the cabin 😉 , hehe the ability to push any button, push the throttle  and pull the levers, *without* any fatal consequence…a FAN-flying-TASTIC experience!! (couldn’t get enough of the Boeing 777-300! 😉 )

Axel my friend, THANKS a zillion for this night!!

 

Ready for take-off…
