Questions about the Sim

Can you simulate faults on the sim such as an engine fire?2020-06-19T20:28:00+01:00

Yes you can. The instructor station we use allows us to create emergency situations for the crew to deal with.

Can you crash the simulator?2020-06-19T20:26:56+01:00

Yes you can but as we try and fly it to real world procedures we try not to crash it.

How many computers does it take to run the simulator?2020-06-19T20:23:24+01:00

We have two (2) powerful computers running the simulator.

Does the simulator have motion?2020-06-19T20:23:50+01:00

No, our simulator is “fixed base”. It does not move but with the wrap around visuals it give you the feeling it moves when you are sitting in it.

What type of aircraft is your simulator based on?2020-06-19T20:25:25+01:00

Our simulator is a replica of the Boeing 737-800.

Can I come and fly the simulator?2020-06-19T20:26:22+01:00

Yes you can fly this simulator but not during our money raising events for our chosen charity. The simulator belongs to the Jet Sim School based at Peterborough in the UK. It is available to hire so we suggest you check out the Jet Sim School website for more information.

How much did it cost to build the Sim?2020-06-19T20:29:23+01:00

This is not an easy question to answer as the simulator keeps evolving to keep it up-to-date using the latest modern technology. Let us say here that if you can afford to buy a secondhand Aston Martin sports car then you could afford to build the sim that we use during fund raising events for our chosen charity.
