Hello, everyone.

I would love to get some time in a real simulator since, after playing x-plane for years, I am curious as to how I'd do in a "real" aircraft.

Are there locations or airports where civilians like myself can get time in a real simulator? What are the rates like? Does it depend on the aircraft?

I am near several airports with all my switching between home and school, including JFK, EWR, LGA, HPN, TEB, PHL, and ABE.

Hey TIS,

some airlines or flight school offer some kind of sim time! You can buy it, but its pretty expensive... but its fun as well  Wink

But I dont know about any in your region because I am from Germany. Try to contact airlines who are based near you or flight schools who own the level D sims... And then save some money

Then how about letting me fly your MD-11 for a few hours?!?!?

Haha.

Thanks for the advice. I'll look into it.

Would be enough for me to get a jumpseat ride on your MD11  Wink

Anyone know of something specific in the PHL or NYC area?

Thanks

Flight Safety International will let folks off the street put in a few hrs in a sim. go to their website and find one close to you and call them. you can also schedule online but I do believe you have to have an accoutn with them already to do that.


What gets measured gets done.
