Pilot Simulator Assessment Preparation

Airline Pilot Simulator Assessment Preparation

Prepare for an upcoming simulator assessment

Through our expertise and knowledge of airline simulator assessments, we have helped over one hundred pilots get their dream job in 2014 so far! We offer tailored simulator assessment preparation and flight experience sessions on a comprehensive range of full motion and fixed based simulators located around the United Kingdom. This includes the Boeing 737 / 757 / 767 / 747 / 777 / 787 and Airbus A320 / A330 / A340 / A380. Our flight training partners, Virtual Aviation, are a UK CAA approved ATO. From the first phone call you can expect a highly professional bespoke service geared towards ensuring you pass your airline sim check.

The most cost effective simulator is a certified fixed base 737-800 (Next Generation) and is located approximately 30 minutes from London Stansted Airport. It boasts the best visual modelling in the UK and beats the visuals installed on most full motion simulators. It also uses the Boeing Flight Dyanamics software, ensuring that the aircraft handles exactly like the real thing. Don’t settle for a generic simulator which can provide negative training, as it handles nothing like the real aircraft.

It provides a great opportunity to properly prepare for your Ryanair / Jet2 / Fly Dubai / easyJet / Sun Express simulator assessment – or any other assessment which takes place on one of our simulators.

Every week we see our customers getting their dream job:

All of our assessment preparation sessions are run by experienced airline pilots who have a comprehensive knowledge of the airline simulator selection procedures. They are run on a one to one basis, ensuring you get the full attention of the instructor from the duration of the booking.

We also cater for people just who want to brush up on their manual handling, or maybe you are considering a job in commercial aviation and just want to experience flying a commercial jet.

All sessions include a full 1 hour briefing specific to the airline to which you attending the assessment and a 30 minute debriefing plus the time stated in the simulator. All prices are inclusive of VAT. Prices below are for the Cambridge fixed based simulator, for a quote regarding a specific aircraft full motion simulator, please contact us.

Before booking with a company offering a cheaper product, ask them the following questions:

Does it have the Boeing flight dynamics package?

Many simulators are just generic flight models with working panels and a projector that are based on nothing more than “jazzed up” version of Microsoft Flight Simulator. This is counter productive as it handles nothing like the real simulator will. Our simulator is certified to conduct pilot training in it which is testament to its realism.

Is your session with an experienced airline pilot with thousands of hours on type?

You can only teach someone how to fly the aircraft properly if you have extensive experience in operating the aircraft – not in the simulator but in real life! Lots of simulator ‘training’ companies are run by enthusiasts who have never operated a commercial aircraft.

Is it with a company that holds a UK CAA ATO approval?

Our flight training partners Virtual Aviation are approved to conduct Multi Crew Cooperation Courses (MCC). You can therefore expect to receive a very high standard.

Do they have 16 years of flight training experience?

Our flight training partners have just that. The knowledge and experience gained over this time is invaluable. No other company can compare to the quality of service, advice and knowledge that will be imparted.

Don’t just take our word for it, this is a small selection of our customer reviews for our simulator assessment preparation service:

Norwegian Air Shuttle Direct Entry Captain AssessmentJuly 2014

It was a great help to spend two hours in the simulator before my assessment. My instructor was very helpful and knowledgeable, and was able to give me excellent advice and instruction during my session. My simulator assessment went very smoothly so I am very glad I took the opportunity to practice before hand.

Ryanair Assessment February 2014

I was extremely impressed with the service I received from my first enquiring phone call through to both my sims. Both instructors were extremely helpful and very approachable. They made me feel relaxed in the sim and I thoroughly enjoyed both sessions and benefited a lot from them. Being able to contact the instructor before the sim session is also very helpful. The office staff were extremely friendly and made you feel very welcome. I felt like I was receiving the service I paid for and more! Thank you and I will inform you soon of the result of my interview!
