Well imagine going to an airport and stepping on to a plane to go away but you can now fly the plane as you look round to the right you can see authentic seats overhead lockers and threw the windows your wings and scenery as if you were on board a real 737
I contacted steve and his lovelly wife about comming up to use his simulator an explained about what I wanted as Iam a simulator junnkie and been doing quiet a few including a wonderfull one in coventry 747 simulator which is another home built one well anyway on arrivale in the sleepy town of stacksteads you would never imagine that you were going to be in such a realistic simulator ever even when you walk in this old mill and climb the stairs and open the door to the centre you would not guess that you were going to be taken on a journey of realism son now we begin. On opening the door to the centre it feels and looks like an airport departure lounge i walked down a corridor greeted by steve and wife and escorted down this jetway that looked just like the real thing and onto my aircraft for the afternoon my instructor was on board ready and steve handed me over to him a bru was made and we had a chat such a nice you man who himself is going to be an airline pilot and wish him every succese for the future.
Now after talking to my instructor we walked into the cockpit wich is 100 percent realistic every switch button works you like a child in a sweet shop after making my self comfortable in my seat we started getting the aircraft ready now even if you hve never ever done this before you will love it everything is gone threw in english so dont worry my instructor was amazing.
the graphics sounds are stunning attention to detail amazing were superb the engines were started and aircraft was pushed back all of which i did with the help of excellent tuition so the throttles were opened slightly and we taxed out of my fav airport birmingham for our short flight to manchester so to the runway we went headsets on which really worked so i could talk to my co pilot ie instructor while going threw our checklist and getting the aircraft ready for depature as were were going to the runway the tanoy was going threw announcments with a safety briefing my god is there nothing this thing wont do we arrived at the runway and proceded to open the throttles and take of to manchester you have to stop yourself from moving you head as it looks so real and even though you dont have motion on this simulator you dont need it and the price is amazing great value for money. the sound is so real and this simulator they will configure it so you can fly from and to any airport or country in the world nothing is to much trouble this is as real as us the general public will get to flying a multi million dollar plane and since 911 ever get into a cockpit do to security this is a home built simulator but you would never ever tell I did alot more flying different circuits and failures landing and takeoffs even my instructor was put under preassure when steve configured the aircarft for a zero visabilty landing in dubui and he showed such skill and precision it was a pleasure to watch now if you have psare time and want to do something amazing then please please do this you will love the service from the inital phone call to book you experiance to arrival and when you leave with the most amazing smile on your face as you leave after flying a 737 thanks angain to steve and all the team at flightdeck experiances your a very very talented guy to build it and every succes for the future and in the word of arnie i will be back and well worth the 2 and a half hours to get to you and if i could give you 100 stars i would
