Shoot an instrument approach in low visibility, land in a thunderstorm or blizzard, handle an engine failure on takeoff, conduct a visual approach in difficult terrain … and much more! Full briefings, charts, instructor guidance and feedback is provided.
These scenarios are designed for pilots and flight-simulation enthusiasts. You’ll have one of our instructors on-board as your second crew-member to brief and guide you. All of our instructors are real pilots with many years of flying experience. We recommend that you have at least 1 hour of prior experience in our simulator before undertaking these scenarios (if you’re looking for something a little less challenging try our Flight Adventures instead – see above).
