I have been reading the lively discussions about the BA and AF Concordes and if they will fly again. My questions is who would fly them? Even if a Concord pilot wanted to fly one wouldn't he need additional training to be up to date? Where would he go for training. That question goes for any odd, or one of a kind airplane. There are lots of classic planes out there that there are plenty of such as DC-8s or DC-3s, but what about something else. Lets say someone got a Convair 880 flyable, unlikely, but you never know. Where would a pilot go to get trained to fly such an aircraft, especially if only one or two would be flying?

I have always wondered the same thing. With the A380 they had simulator before first flight. Did they ever have a simulator for the Concord? If not maybe they will call Microsoft and get an old copy of Flight-sim
After further thought maybe you should post this in Tech-ops
