As a captain with 15,000 flight hours on an Airbus A320 and a Boeing 737, I can confirm that both simulators are already very close to reality and meet quality standards even for flight crew training thanks to the functionality of the individual systems and authentic control forces.

More about screening preparation FO a CPT / upgrade

We have prepared an effective program for you with professional instructors, which will prepare you for the selection process for the position of first officer, captain or upgrade to captain in 9 hours over two days (total of 6 hours of flight + 3 hours of theory). It is important not to underestimate the preparation itself, because any failure will take away the credit you have built up and postpone your career by up to a year.

This course is suitable for type-rated pilots who will complete the selection procedure on a Boeing 737 or Airbus A320 aircraft simulator. Taking into account the type of tender procedure and the target operator, we will reveal your possible weaknesses and will also emphasize the right decision-making skills. During the program, it is possible to purchase additional hours at a discount.

Professional flight simulator

We are not just talking about an experience simulator, but about a certified type of Boeing 737NG simulator, which has a professional system of variable forces in the so-called loading control. It simulates the actual steering force applied to the pilot according to the speed of the air flowing around the control surfaces of the airplane. This allows pilots during training to feel real control power on this simulator based on the speed or balance of the aircraft. The cockpit exactly corresponds to a real airplane, including all controls and their real functionality. The panaromatic semi-circular projection provides the perfect illusion of flight and has a range of 180° and a length of 8 meters.

FAQ

1

How does it go?

The experience begins with sitting in a prepared cockpit with an instructor. During the main experience, your audience can, upon request, try out Flight Simulator 2020 for 15 minutes as a bonus flight. This is not a professional simulator, but a regular game with beautiful details with visuals on a 55" 4K screen and a basic Thrustmaster flight controller in the form of self-service control. After the experience, we will guide you through our center and show you step by step all of our professional simulators. If they are in operation, you can look inside through the window provided for this. For experiences on the Formula 1 and Racing Special simulators, a qualified operator is available to change the settings or fee professional instructor Jan Charouz (on request in advance) at Formula 1.

 

2

Can I bring an audience?

YES, you can have up to three spectators, but only the recipient can pilot. The exception is the submarine experience, where 3 people in different roles and 1 person from the audience are in charge. Spectator accompaniment above the permitted limit can be paid for on site at a price of CZK 190 per person depending on the capacity. Taking turns in the cockpit is only allowed to the escort for an additional charge of CZK 490 per person taking turns due to discounted prices for longer experiences for one person and increased wear and tear on the simulators when changing people.

 

3

What is the appropriate length of the experience?

The best-selling option is 60 minutes, as it allows you to repeat the landing with civilian aircraft or the air combat with the F16 fighter. You will also try a second and very interesting mission with the submarine, and the racing simulators will offer two tracks. However, choose according to your options, because it is still possible to extend the experience when booking with an additional price.

 

4

Do I need any previous experience?

Absolutely not, our instructor or operator will explain everything needed to master the given phase of the simulation. For more complex simulators such as the Boeing 737NG, Airbus A320, F16 Fighting Falcon, Cessna 182RG and the U-BOAT submarine, a qualified instructor is available throughout your experience.

 

5

Can I exchange the voucher for another one?

Certainly yes, the best way is to gift a universal experience and let the recipient choose their preferred simulator. However, even if you choose any experience, you can always exchange it for another one with a possible surcharge when booking in our online system.

 

6

What about the validity of the voucher, the reservation date and the cancellation of the experience?

The voucher is valid for 6 - 12 months and can also be extended. The recipient chooses the date during the validity period in the online reservation system. It is possible to cancel the appointment free of charge no later than 72 hours before the start of the experience.

 

7

Will I be piloting alone or with an instructor?

Yes, as far as you can manage yourself! However, we will not leave you alone, but our instructor will help you with everything you need to master the experience.

 

8

Will I share my experience with someone else?

All experiences are individual and reserved only for the recipient and their entourage. No one will disturb you in the cockpit with our instructor.

 

9

Are there any minimum age and height requirements for the applicant?

Yes, the recommended age for children is from 12 years old with a minimum height of 150 cm and adults with a weight of up to 120 kg.

 

10

Is the trainer fully moving "full-motion-simulator"?

YES, we have three moving simulators. The Cessna 182RG includes a 3DOF movable base (3 degrees of freedom of movement ie lift, pitch, roll) The racing special has a 4DOF movable base (4 degrees of freedom of movement ie lift, pitch, pitch and rotation). Boeing 737NG, Airbus A320, F16 Fighting Falcon, Formula 1 and U-BOAT is a so-called "fixed-based-simulator" without hydraulics. Unfortunately, the high costs for the so-called the full flight motion transporter airplane simulator is designed for training flight crews and is significantly more expensive. Professional fighter simulators are not made with a moving base at all because of the high G. On the other hand, our 180-degree wide-angle view composed of three full HD projectors for Boeing 737NG, Airbus A320, F16 Fighting Falcon and Formula 1 simulators will sufficiently replace this feeling. The brain is easily fooled by the impression of movement when the image is large.

 

11

Where do the real Cessna flights take place?

In partner aviation schools Prague Leťnany BlueSky Academy for a fee of CZK 500 or in the price of the experience in Roudnice nad Labem Aviatický klub or OK-AIR in Příbram with an experienced instructor with a Cessna 172 for 30 minutes with your escort. This aircraft is a four-seater.

    Už jako malý kluk se zajímal o letadla a obdivuje tyto stroje dodnes. Dříve stačilo lepení modelů a pozorování letadel nad hlavou. Od roku 2003 se sny být skutečným pilotem začaly rýsovat více jasněji a získal kvalifikaci obchodního pilota s doložkou IR/MEP, ATPL(A) frozen. V roce 2009 úspěšně absolvoval výběrové řízení na pozici dopravního pilota u společnosti ČSA. V současnosti se zabývá obchodními lety pro soukromou společnost, která hodlá využívat obchodní leteckou dopravu s využitím turbovrtulových letadel pro transport speciálních lékových forem.
