Airline Simulator Preparation

Prepare for your airline simulator assessment with confidence.

Our professional, one-to-one simulator assessment preparation sessions are designed to give you the best possible chance of passing the simulator check and getting the job. We are here to help you and give you all the support you need to prepare. Our Airline Assessment Preparation Sessions have been created to be as close to your real assessment experience as possible.

Your session will be conducted, where possible, using a genuine assessment profile specific to your future airline. Our profiles are created based on our recruitment experience, backed up by recent feedback from pilots who have been through the process themselves. If you’re looking for more generic preparation, we can offer introductions to the aircraft’s handling characteristics, systems operation and operational procedures. If you’re new to the aircraft type, we’d recommend you couple one of these sessions with your airline specific assessment profile to ensure you’ll feel comfortable and prepared when entering the sim for your sim check.

Procedural Flat Panel Trainer

a320 Flat Panel Trainer

The Flat Panel Trainer (FPT) is a reconfigurable crew training device designed to optimize training time and improve the learning process for pilots and maintenance personnel. Theory, practice, technical details, operational issues and human factors are brought together in a realistic environment.

Training with the FPT is most effective when used for familiarisation, systems, and procedures training prior to entering the full flight simulator. Training organisations can schedule numerous hours in a FPT for the cost of just one hour in a full flight simulator. Most instructors prefer the FPT learning environment as opposed to a simulator when it comes to teaching Crew Concepts, FMC Skills, Normal Flight Procedures and System Abnormalities.

The ability to initiate the FPT to a pre-defined snapshot within seconds eliminates wasteful set-up or repositioning time. A user-friendly Instructor Operating System (IOS) allows the instructor to focus on his most important task – observing the student’s performance.
