Book a bespoke corporate event with Aviation Insider and you’ll get the opportunity to fly a multi-million-pound flight simulator, normally reserved for training professional pilots and experience a morning or an afternoon with interactive, engaging talks learning about CRM (Crew resource management), Failure management and many other factors the Aviation Industry has learned from and implemented over the years.
We offer a wide range of engaging and exciting team building experiences which focus on how humans react under extreme pressure and how we can work together utilising external resources.
All our courses include a simulator exercise where participants must work together in the flight deck to fly the aircraft.
Aviation leads the world in the areas of non-technical skills which include the competencies of decision making, workload management, situation awareness and co-operation. If your business works within a fast paced, pressured environment then this experience will be perfect for you.
Part of the CRM section of the morning we focus on Crew resource management. CRM is a set of training procedures for use in environments where human error can have devastating effects. Used primarily for improving air safety, CRM focuses on interpersonal communication, leadership, and decision making.
Crew Resource management grew out of the 1977 Tenerife airport disaster where two Boeing 747 aircraft collided on the runway killing 583 people. A few weeks later, NASA held a workshop on the topic, endorsing this innovative training. United Airlines was the first airline to provide CRM training for its cockpit crews in 1981. By the 1990s, it had become a global standard.
The Sim Experience offers you the opportunity to delve into the airline world and take to the controls of a jet aircraft under the watchful eyes and guidance of our trained pilots.
Worth around £10-million, and certified by the Civil Aviation Authority to Level-D (the highest level there is), flight simulators don’t get any more realistic than this.
From basic introductions to airline flying, to the tiniest bump on the runway and even the sinking feeling in your stomach as you take off, you’ll be amazed by the realism, and convinced you’re really flying.
We offer a range of different simulator experiences like:
- Big Jets: Flying large jet aircraft differs greatly from small light aircraft. Let your
instructor take you through the basics of handling the big Jets.
- Bad Weather: Landing an aircraft in bad weather is all part of the job for an airline pilot. Have a go at landing the big Jets in bad weather. Do you have what it takes?
- Night Landings: Landing a large aircraft at night is very different from landing during daylight hours. The lack of visual cues makes it difficult for the pilot to assess where he or she may be in relation to the runway. Our instructors will take you through the techniques used by real airline pilots.
No previous flying experience necessary! Your own personal instructor is there to provide hands-on guidance and make sure you get the maximum possible enjoyment from your simulator flight. With a comprehensive briefing before you will be fully equipped to fly.
