Have you always wanted to know what it's like to be at the wheel of a Cessna 172? This is now possible with this full-motion flight simulator from the Cessna. Full-motion means that the cockpit moves with it: turns and tilts. This makes it seem like you are really flying. The nice thing about a flight simulator is that you don't really fly. It is also very suitable if you are less agile, if you want to fly cheaply or perhaps have fear of flying. The experience comes very close to how it is to fly yourself in a 172. It also gives you the chance to try out everything that is not possible in a real aircraft. Like flying in extreme weather.
You can find this simulator in Gouda.
The cockpit is not only an exact copy, all buttons and instruments work as in real life. And the cockpit also moves with it. It is not for nothing that the real pilots are trained in this simulator. This flight simulator is a very special one. This is a so-called Redbird FMX, the only one in the Netherlands.
You start with an extensive explanation about the basics of flying. In this 'briefing' the instructor answers the most important questions: what are all the buttons, lights and other instruments for? Of course you can also ask all your questions yourself. If you take someone along nicely, then of course he / she can also be at the introduction. Then you both know what you are going to experience 'in the air'. You do not have to pay extra for this.
The theory part always takes about 20 minutes, regardless of the length of time that you choose for the practical part.
Then you step into the simulator and fly to an airport of your choice. Maybe you still want to simulate a technical failure? Everything is possible. Normally this simulator is used for training pilots. From now on you know what that feels like!
You decide how long the practical part takes. The minimum is 20 minutes. But the longer, the more fun of course!
After you have "landed" there is a drink ready for you and you can enjoy a moment with explanation from the instructor.

Ik doe een vlieg opleiding elders en wilde wat meer focus op mijn landing. In het echt kun je een handvol landingen doen per vliegles maar op een simulator veel meer voor minder geld. Voor mij was het een tool om mijn vaardigheden aan te scherpen.
